After an away win against Wolfsburg in their last round, Augsburg will be looking to repeat their good performance when they host Werder Bremen at the SGL Arena in the 19th round of the German top division.
The Hosts Looking To Find Consistency
The hosts have been struggling with consistency since the start of the campaign. The team have been in an up and down form recently and they will definitely be looking for a solid ground till the rest of the season. Augsburg have collected a total of 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Wolfsburg away from home where they won 2-1.
Augsburg are currently sitting in the 13th place in the league table. They have 21 points from 5 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses. The team scored 15 goals and conceded 20 since the start of the season.
Konstantinos Stafylidis returns from suspension, but could be forced to settle for a spot on the bench, with Philipp Max keeping his spot at left-back. Captain Paul Verhaegh returns from injury to start at right-back.
The visitors are not in a much worse situation than the hosts. Bremen have failed to win in their last four league games, losing the last two. Werder Bremen have collected a total of 5 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Bayern Munich at home where they lost 2-1.
Werder Bremen are currently sitting in the 15th place in the league table. They have 16 points from 4 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 38 since the start of the season.
Felix Wiedwald will start in goal again, with Jaroslav Drobny suspended. Robert Bauer should switch to the left to replace the suspended Santiago García, with Theodor Gebre Selassie filling in on the right.
