While Stuttgart have lost their last four games in the Bundesliga, Augsburg have lost three and drawn one.
The two teams are separated by just six points in the Bundesliga table. While the latter don’t really have anything to play for except a top-10 finish, Augsburg are still not clear of relegation.
The Bavarians have 33 points and are just four points clear of Koln, who occupy the relegation playoff spot.
Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side, on the other hand, will hope to climb back into the top 10 after dropping to 10th because of their poor form.
Stuttgart vs Augsburg Head-to-head
Suprisingly, Augsburg have the edge when it comes to the head-to-head record between the two teams, but it’s not heavily one-sided.
While Stuttgart have won this fixture six times, Augsburg have come out on top 10 times. Only one game between the two has ended as a draw.
