Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Mercedes-Benz Arena will host Friday’s football game between Stuttgart and Augsburg. Die Schwaben aim to put an end to their four-game losing run in the Bundesliga, but seeing that they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation, home win should not be considered. Midfielder Naouirou Ahamada is banned for the match, while Egloff, Gonzalez, Kaminski, Mangala, Sosa, and Wamangituka are all sidelined with injuries.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, collected only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures. Augsburg aim to move away from the danger zone, but they be should be happy with one point from Friday’s clash as well. Uduokhai returns from suspension, while Pedersen, Khedira, and Civeja are all out of contention through injuries. Sarenren-Bazee, on the other hand, has been tested positive for coronavirus. Anyhow, share of spoils is on the cards at Mercedes-Benz Arena.
