Odds: 7/10 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their Bundesliga flurry and make a major statement on Saturday afternoon, Augsburg will travel to the Volkswagen Arena when they meet Wolfsburg.

Starting with the hosts, while Wolfsburg might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign with their sights set on booking a lucrative European return, the Wolves are enduring another Bundesliga struggle this time around. Last seen falling to a routine 2-0 loss at the hands of runaway leaders Bayer Leverkusen, it has been suggested that Niko Kovac has mounting pressure on his shoulders at the Volkswagen Arena. Opening March with an action-packed 3-2 loss against Stuttgart, the former Monaco boss has seen his side fail to win any of their last nine straight top-flight appearances. With that public struggle stemming all the way back to December 16th, Wolfsburg have continued to gain a reputation for their extended struggles at the back. In fact, along with shipping a pair of goals in all of their previous three Bundesliga showdowns, Saturday’s hosts have registered just a single top-flight clean sheet since the end of September. It should also be noted, the Wolves have seen their last five outings finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Augsburg might have found themselves at the heart of a Bundesliga relegation scrap last season, Jess Thorup’s men have impressed many across Germany’s elite this time around. Opening March with a thumping performance away at Darmstadt as they stormed their way to a 6-0 romp, the Bavaria-based outfit find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Skyrocketing their way up the Bundesliga table and finding a route into the top-half, some in Augsburg’s camp could be smelling the chance to make another statement here. With their recent flurry highlighted by a 2-1 victory against Europa League outfit Freiburg, Saturday’s guests have also lost just one of their last six outings. Likewise, Thorup’s men should also be hugely excited by their most recent meeting against Wolfsburg. Claiming an action-packed 3-2 win when they welcomed the Wolves to Bavaria back on October 28th, we could be set for another enjoyable affair from the Volkswagen Arena this weekend.
