Bundesliga | FC Augsburg VS VfB Stuttgart; Saturday, 11 May at 02:30 GMT +8

Augsburg is looking to avoid a repeat of their previous loss against Borussia Dortmund, which ended in a 5-1 Bundesliga 1 loss. In that match, Augsburg had 40% possession and 22 shots at goal, with only Ruben Vargas scoring. Borussia Dortmund had 21 shots at goal and 10 on target. Augsburg’s recent matches have been entertaining, with 21 goals scored for both sides, with 6 of them coming from Augsburg. They haven’t won against Stuttgart in their previous four league matches.

Stuttgart, after a 3-1 win against Bayern Munich, will face Augsburg in a match following a 3-1 Bundesliga 1 win. Stuttgart managed 60% possession and 24 shots at goal, with Leonidas Stergiou, Woo-yeong Jeong, and Silas Katompa Mvumpa scoring for them. Bayern Munich had 10 attempts at goal, with Harry Kane scoring for them. Stuttgart has scored an average of 3.5 goals per match in their last six games, but this trend may not continue in this match. Stuttgart has not won away from home in their last two league games.

Augsburg boss Jess Thorup will miss several key players due to injuries, with the team potentially forming a 4-3-1-2 formation, with starting positions handed to various players, including Tomáš Koubek, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Maximilian Bauer, Felix Uduokhai, Mads Pedersen, and Ruben Vargas.

Stuttgart manager Sebastian Hoeneß faces reduced team options due to injuries to Nikolas Nartey, Roberto Massimo, Josha Vagnoman, Lilian Egloff, and Dan-Axel Zagadou. The team is expected to opt for a 4-4-2 system with a starting lineup of Alexander Nubel, Leonidas Stergiou, and Hiroki Ito.
