However, Augsburg have floundered at an inopportune moment, as they’ve lost their last three games. As Augsburg looks to bounce back, we’ll run through the Augsburg vs Stuttgart odds.

Augsburg Keeper Out for Season

Augsburg have imploded at the worst possible time. In their last three games, Augsburg are 0-3 and have conceded 11 goals. Last weekend, Borussia Dortmund destroyed Augsburg 5-1 with a team made up of mostly reserves. To make matters worse, starting keeper Finn Dahmen got injured in the build-up to the match and will miss the rest of the season. Augsburg have had some bad luck with injuries recently.

Along with Dahmen, Fredrik Jensen, Iago, Elvis Rexhbecaj and Robert Gumny are also out. Ruben Vargas did get on the scoresheet for Augsburg last weekend and they created plenty of chances but their defense has been all over the place lately. Only four teams have conceded more times than Augsburg this season. Still, they’re in ninth place in the Bundesliga table, just two points behind seventh-placed Freiburg.

With five teams entering next season’s Champions League from the Bundesliga, seventh place should be enough to secure Europa League football. Augsburg have two top four teams remaining on their schedule, in Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen. This season, Ermedin Demirovic has been a massive bright spot for Augsburg. The Bosnian forward has provided 15 goals and nine assists in the Bundesliga.

Stuttgart: One of the Surprises of the Season

Stuttgart have lost just one of their last 14 Bundesliga matches and have been one of the surprises of the season. They can rest somewhat easy knowing that they’ll be playing in next season’s Champions League. An excellent 3-1 win over Bayern Munich sealed their place among Europe’s elite. Just a year ago, Sebastian Hoeness and Stuttgart were battling relegation and now they’re one of the Bundesliga’s best.

Serhou Guirassy didn’t manage to score vs. Bayern but he ranks second in the Bundesliga stats, with 25 goals. Meanwhile, Deniz Undav has scored 18 times and assisted 10 times and his loan move is likely to become permanent this Summer. Stuttgart were recently just a minute away from becoming the first team to defeat Bayer Leverkusen all season but Leverkusen managed to find a last-minute equalizer.

While Stuttgart have lost just once at home this season, they haven’t fared as well on the road. They’re 9-1-6 in the Bundesliga away from home with just a +3 goal difference. They do only have one road loss in their last seven, though. Stuttgart do also have a couple defensive injuries, as Dan-Axel Zagadou and Josha Vagnoman are out.

Augsburg vs Stuttgart Match Analysis & Odds

It would be brilliant for Stuttgart can say they finished higher than Bayern Munich this season. Currently, Stuttgart are just two points behind the Bavarian giants with two games to play. Still, this game has a lot more potential significance for Augsburg, who are chasing European qualification.

Here, the Augsburg vs Stuttgart odds price visiting Stuttgart as -130 favorites. Meanwhile, Augsburg are +265 underdogs and bettors can back a draw at +300. Augsburg’s injuries have somewhat derailed their campaign and expect Stuttgart to pounce. Hoeness’ side have averaged over two goals per game and it’s hard to bet against them getting on the scoresheet here.

After all, Guirassy and Undav have been the league’s most prolific duo this season. Augsburg +0.5 sits at even odds but they are 0-1-5 vs. top-four opposition this season. At -110 odds, over 3, 3.5 goals may be a popular pick for Friday’s match.
