Bayern Munich confirmed that it would be their name on the Bundesliga trophy for the sixth year running last week but there is still plenty of action left for the other sides in the German top-flight. In the weekly Friday night fixture, Augsburg and Wolfsburg face off with both teams looking to move up the table ahead of Saturday and Sunday’s matches. Wolfsburg are in a precarious position down in 15th while Augsburg are on the verge of the top half in 11th.
Wolfsburg won’t have particularly enjoyed their recent meetings with Augsburg who have largely dominated proceedings. Of the last six, Augsburg have three wins to Wolfsburg’s one and Friday’s visitors have won both of the last two, including the reverse fixture this season. They came from a goal down to win 2-1 thanks to a goal each from their joint top goal scorers. Both teams scored in both of those games but in the five before that, it didn’t happen once.
A win for Wolfsburg would see them move one place above ahead of the weekend’s fixtures. They have to deal with the possibility of nine first-team players missing out. Jakub Blaszczykowski and John Brooks are the two most notable.

An important three points for Augsburg would take them into 9th and into the top half of the Bundesliga. However, they might have to play without leading scorer, Finnbogason among four others. Latest matches: FC Augsburg

Despite Wolfsburg being the home side for this game, with all of their injury worries and poor form, they aren’t the favourites to come away from this one with all three points. Augsburg should have too many quality in their side to overcome the hosts.
