- Augsburg have lost four of their last five matches
- Stuttgart have posted 21 Bundesliga wins this term
- Recommended bet: Stuttgart to win & over 2.5 goals

Stuttgart have been among the Bundesliga chasing pack all season long and they have justified their top-four status in the last couple of weeks.

A disciplined 2-2 draw away to pacesetters Bayer Leverkusen at the end of April was followed by a 3-1 win over Bayern Munich on Saturday and Die Roten can look forward to Champions League football next season.

But they will want to finish the season with a flourish and next up is a visit to Augsburg, who are locked in mid-table obscurity with little left to play for.

Team news

Augsburg could again be without injured group Raphael Framberger, Robert Gummy, Elvis Rexhbecaj, Fredrik Jensen and Reece Oxford.

Enzo Millot could be back from suspension for Stuttgart, although Nikolas Nartey and Roberto Massimo are among those who could miss out.

Jeong Woo-yeong could start after coming off the bench to score against Munich last time out.

The stats

Stuttgart have racked up 21 wins in 32 Bundesliga fixtures this season, leaving them only two points behind juggernauts Bayern.

They have one of the best road records in the division with nine wins from 16 away games in the Bundesliga.

Augsburg, meanwhile, head into this game following a run of four defeats in their last five matches.

It does not take a genius to work out that Stuttgart are the form team heading into this match at the WWK Arena.

While a run of four defeats in five games has left Augsburg lingering in mid-table, Stuttgart have taken four points from their last two matches against Bayern and Bayer.

With the top five spots awarding Champions League qualification this season, it has been pretty obvious for some time that Stuttgart would qualify for Europe's elite competition next term.

But they have not taken their foot off the gas, and they should be determined to prevail again on Friday night.

Stuttgart have lost just one of their last 12 fixtures and can come out on top but to squeeze more value out of the contest, punters should combine an away win with over 2.5 goals.

Over 2.5 goals has clicked in each of Stuttgart's last four league fixtures, while Augsburg have leaked 11 goals in their last three games.
