Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Prediction and Betting Tips | January 14, 2023  

FC Augsburg v VfL Bochum 1848 - Bundesliga
Augsburg host Wolfsburg in a friendly on Saturday.

Augsburg will host Wolfsburg at the WWK Arena on Saturday (January 14) in a friendly ahead of their Bundesliga return.

The hosts have endured a largely difficult league campaign, finding themselves just outside the relegation zone with just 15 points from as many games. Augsburg lost 1-0 to Bochum in their last league game and perhaps deserved more but couldn't convert their chances.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, endured a difficult start to their season under Niko Kovac but picked up just before the winter break to push for continental football. They picked up a hard-fought 2-1 win over Hoffenheim in their last game, with Ridle Baku scoring a second-half winner.

The visitors will face second-placed Freiburg on their competitive return later this month.

Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Prediction

Augsburg are on a run of back-to-back defeats and have won just two of their last 12 games across competitions. They are winless in their last five competitive games at home and could struggle here.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, are on a brilliant 12-game unbeaten run, winning seven. They're in much better form than their opponents and should come out on top.

Prediction: Augsburg 1-2 Wolfsburg
