One of the major soccer competitions in Europe is back on track this weekend, as the Bundesliga is re-starting after the lockdown. Here we will take a look at two teams that are chasing different things, as Augsburg will play host to Wolfsburg on Saturday.
Wolfsburg (9-7-9) were in tremendous shape prior to the break, as they were undefeated in their last six matches for the Bundesliga (3-0-3). In their last match they fell by 2-1 at home against Shakhtar Donetsk in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Europa League. But that was their only loss in their last nine matches in all competitions (5-1-3). Wolfsburg are sitting at the 7th spot of the Bundesliga with 36 points, just one point behind Schalke and the top-six. They have produced some solid results on the road so far (5-4-3) and were undefeated in their last four away matches in all competitions, scoring at least twice in each match.
Augsburg (7-12-6) were in terrible shape prior to the enforced break, as they were on a five-match win-less streak and have won just once in their last nine matches (1-7-1). Moreover, they failed to score in three of their last five. Augsburg are sitting at the 14th spot of the league table with 27 points, five ahead of the relegation zone. They have been quite solid at home so far (5-4-3), where they lost just two of their last seven matches (4-2-1).
The two teams split the points in a goal-less draw in the first round, but last season it was Wolfsburg who destroyed Augsburg by a massive 1-8 at home and by 3-2 in this venue. Even so, there has been balance in this venue between the two (3-3-2). Looking at how the two teams have performed earlier in the season, combined with their eagerness to return to action, I would expect to see some goals here.
