Stuttgart played out a 1-1 draw against Union Berlin last time out. They began the game rather slowly and found themselves a goal down just before the break when Konstantinos Mavropanos gave away a penalty. However, Sasa Kalajdzic rescued a point for his side with a late strike.
The hosts sit 16th in the league table with 23 points from 26 games. They can exit the drop zone with a win on Saturday and will be looking to do just that.
Augsburg return to action this week after a two-week hiatus. They beat Arminia Bielefeld 1-0 in their last game, with Daniel Caligiuri scoring the sole goal of the game with a thumping strike early in the second half.
Augsburg sit two places and three points above their weekend hosts in the league table and will be looking to widen that gap this weekend.
