Wolfsburg vs. Augsburg: Bundesliga live stream, TV channel, how to watch online, news, odds


Fourteenth-place Augsburg welcomes seventh-place Wolfsburg on Saturday as the Bundesliga season resumes following a two-month break. There will be no fans inside of Augsburg Arena with fans banned due to the coronavirus pandemic as both clubs look to climb the table for different reasons. Augsburg is just five points clear of the bottom three, looking for some breathing room. Wolfsburg could climb into the top six with a win as long as Schalke fails to beat rival Borussia Dortmund.

Storylines

Augsburg: The problem for this side is pretty simple — the defense has just been awful. Conceding over two goals a game, the ability to stay in them can often escape them by conceding early and not having a proper attack to bounce back. The leaky defense starts in the middle where the team is often facing a rush of attackers without proper support in the defensive midfield area. They are hoping two months off allowed them enough time to prepare to show the defense can be at least average.

Wolfsburg: A quality defense leads the way here, but the attack may be catching up. A rough patch with seven losses in 10 games ended in late January, and the Wolves enter this game on a six-match unbeaten streak in the league with the attacking scoring more in the last six games (14 goals) than they did in the prior 15 games. Wout Weghorst has been the man, building off his 18-goal campaign last season with 15 already this season. Expect him to get plenty of chances here. 

Prediction

John Brooks and the Wolfsburg back line step up for record and a clean sheet, and a goal in each half gives the visitors three big points. Pick: Wolfsburg 2, Augsburg 0
