We will just have to find out whether or not that trend can be sustained here.
Coming into this contest, Stuttgart are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.

FC Köln had 15 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Ondrej Duda (8', 33') and Florian Kainz (23') scored for Cologne.

Their prior results show that Augsburg:
- have not beaten Stuttgart when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
- have not won away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.

We feel that in this game, Augsburg will surely be able to find the net against this Stuttgart team, but it may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re expecting a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Stuttgart by the conclusion of the game. Expecting it to be very competitive.
