The Bundesliga returns this weekend and will see Wolfsburg host Augsburg at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday.

Wolfsburg beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 away from home in their last game via quickfire second-half goals from Lukas Nmecha and Maximilian Arnold. The win last weekend ended an eight-game winless run for the visitors.

Die Wolfe sit seventh in the Bundesliga with 16 points from 10 games and a negative goal difference of one. With back-to-back wins in the bag, they will be looking to continue their run on Saturday.

Like their hosts, Augsburg ended a poor run of form with a victory in their last league game. They beat Stuttgart 4-1 last weekend, ending a run of five games without a win across all competitions.

Fuggerstädter currently sit 16th in the league table, the relegation playoff spot, with nine points from 10 games. They will be looking to pick up back-to-back league wins for the first time since last year when they face Wolfsburg at the weekend.

Wolfsburg vs Augsburg Prediction

Wolfsburg backed up their last league victory with a midweek win over Salzburg in the Champions League. The home side have now won back-to-back games after losing four on the bounce.

Augsburg also won their last game, their second in the Bundesliga so far. Both wins have come on home turf as they have lost their last three away league games. That run should continue on Saturday.

Prediction: Wolfsburg 2-1 Augsburg
