In a showdown between two sides that have shown some real issues of late, Augsburg will welcome Borussia Mönchengladbach to The WWK Arena on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Augsburg might have hoped they had turned a corner after landing a hard-fought 1-0 win against Mainz when drawing a close to February, it appears that was just a minor boost. Making an immediate return to losing ways last time out, Heiko Herrlich’s side were hit with a sluggish 2-1 loss away at Hertha Berlin and some in their camp are still looking over their shoulder at the drop zone. With just a pair of Bundesliga wins to their name since January 2nd, a huge part of Augsburg’s struggles this year have come down to their continued issues on home soil. Aside from a victory against Union Berlin back in January, The Whites have remarkably recorded just a single victory at The WWK Arena in any of their last nine straight top-flight contests, a run that stems all the way back to the end of October.

As for the visitors, while Borussia Monchengladbach might have opened 2021 with their sights set on securing another European finish, they now find themselves in the midst of a huge struggle. Rather drastically falling off the pace and only continuing to freefall their way down the Bundesliga table, The Colts now hold just a three-point buffer from slipping out the top-half of the standings. Last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss against Bayer Leverkusen, Gladbach have lost each of their last five matchups on the bounce and it was also confirmed that Head Coach Marco Rose will be leaving at the end of the season. Watching their Champions League hopes take a major dent after a 2-0 loss against Premier League giants Manchester City in the first-leg last month, it should also be noted that Friday’s guests have drawn a blank in three of their last four matchups.
