Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Stuttgart just haven't looked the part this season. Sometimes they will go into games looking good and give opponents a tough time, others they will look fragile making it easy for teams to get the better of them. It is hard to say how they will be this weekend, but even if they do turn up, I think they will find it tough to handle an inform and confident Augsburg side who have been winning tough games of late. A big reason for Ausburg's success this season is down to Iceland international Alfred Finnbogason who has bagged five goals already this season. If he can keep that kind of form up, he could turn into a hero at Augsburg.

VfB Stuttgart Preview

Stuttgart have had a very inconsistent start to the season, winning two and losing three of the opening five matches. They come into this one of the back of a 2-0 defeat away to M'gladbach conceding two goals in the second half to leave them with nothing at the end of the game. The match had a lack of any real quality and was pretty dull to watch. M'gladbach dominated everything and pretty much school this Stuttgart team throughout. They will need a significant pick up this weekend if they are going to come anywhere close to an inform Augsburg side. Having conceded seven goals already this campaign, it is clear to see where their real problem currently lays.

VfB Stuttgart Team News

Stuttgart have an extensive list of absentees this weekend. Here is the full list; Holger Badstuber (groin injury), Anto Grgic (ankle injury), Chadrac Akolo (strain injury), Daniel Ginczek (knee injury), Christian Gentner (head injury), Matthias Zimmermann (ACL), Carlos Mane (knee injury) and Emiliano Insua (knee injury).

Augsburg Preview

Augsburg have started the season on outrageous form, picking up 10 points in five games and currently unbeaten in their last four. The 1-0 win at home to RB Leipzig midweek was possibly the best win they have had this season and has put out a big statement to the rest of the league that they are ready to challenge this season. It was an early goal from Gregoritsch in the 4th minute that proved the difference. Augsburg showed a lot of maturity in their performance even when they were on the back foot closer to the end of the game. They were stubborn and got the job done which is what they will need to do more often this season.

Augsburg Team News

Augsburg also have a fair few out this weekend; Georg Teigl (back injury), Marving Friedrich (muscle injury), Moritz Leitner (ankle injury), Raphael Framberger (knee injury) and Tim Rieder (knee injury).
