Team Form

Stuttgart

Stuttgart sank into the 13th spot after an agonizing and narrow defeat 2-1 defeat from Bayer Leverkusen. It was their fourth consecutive loss and have yet to score three (3) extra points since the second half of the season started.

 

For the third time in a row, Die Roten took an early lead, but failed to make a stronger finish before the final whistle was blown. Such inconsistency has taken a huge toll on the club’s team form for they have only won once within the course of their last six (6) matches. To make matters even worse, the number of goals that they conceded during their past seven (7) encounters average on two (2) goals.

 

Augsburg

After almost slipping out of the league’s safe zone, Augsburg is now flying high in Germany’s top-flight league.

 

Augsburg’s current form is surprisingly impressive. Unbeaten in their last seven (7) matches, their recent victory came at Werder Bremen’s expense. Therefore, it will not come as too much of a surprise to see the squad visit the struggling Stuttgart with overflowing confidence as they try to move higher in the Bundesliga table.

 

Prediction: Augsburg

Augsburg has only won twice against Stuttgart during their last six (6) matches. Their upcoming encounter promises to be another spectacle of an exciting and down the wire match. However, given their impressive form, it is highly possible to turn the odds into their favor.
