The hosts will head into the weekend looking to complete an impressive league double over Die Werderaner, having secured a 1-0 win in September’s reverse fixture.
Augsburg were condemned to a fifth consecutive away defeat last Saturday when they were beaten 2-0 by Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
However, Enrico Maassen’s side have now returned to home turf, where they have picked up three wins from their last three league outings since November’s 1-0 loss against Bochum.
With 24 points from 22 matches, Augsburg are currently 13th in the Bundesliga table, five points above the relegation zone.

Prior to that, Ole Werner’s side were on a two-game losing streak, suffering successive defeats against Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt respectively.
With 30 points from 22 matches, Werder Bremen are currently ninth in the league table, eight points off the Conference League qualification spot.
