Today’s free tip is about Bundesliga match Augsburg vs Stuttgart form our tipster Pete Nordstad:
“This is a vital game that affects both ends of the table. Motivation wise Augsburg can still qualify for the Europa cup and Stuttgart are fighting relegation.
Augsburg are coming into this game in fairly poor form and they have only won 1 of their last 9 Bundesliga matches. Augsburg currently sit in 6th place on 39 points and they are in a decent position to gain a Europa League place. Augsburg’s recent home form reads W9, D3, L3 and 2 of the 3 defeats have come against Bayern Munich & Dortmund.
When facing sides of Stuttgart’s grading Augsburg’s home record again reads a reasonable and resilient looking W6, D3, L1
The recent head-to-head record favours the home side and reads Augsburg 2 Wins, 0 Draws and Stuttgart 1 win.
Stuttgart have improved of late and indeed they have won 2 of their last 3 Bundesliga matches at home to Werder Bremen and Frankfurt. Currently Stuttgart sit in 17th place on 26 points and their recent away record reads a poor looking W3, D5, L7
When facing teams of Augsburg’s stature Stuttgart’s away record reads a very poor looking W0, D1, L9
Historically when top half sides have hosted bottom 6 sides the record reads 273 games, Home 170, Draw 62, Away 42 won 41. When looking at April to May in 54 games it reads 36 Home, 14 Draw and 4 Away. Here it looks unlikely that Stuttgart will win this game and although Augsburg have themselves gone through a rock patch there looks some very good risk v reward backing them on the -0. 25 goal handicap”
