• Wolfsburg have won just one of their five Bundesliga meetings with FCA (D2, L2): VfL won the meeting in Augsburg earlier this season 2-1, despite having trailed.
  • FCA are unbeaten in Wolfsburg (W1, D1). HSV (2.3 points per game) are the only current Bundesliga side Augsburg have picked up more points against away from home than Wolfsburg (2.0).
  • After their matches in Mönchengladbach (2-1 win) and against Schalke (2-1 loss), FCA are now set to face Wolfsburg, Leverkusen, Mainz and Bayern. All six of those sides currently sit in the top seven in the table.
  • Augsburg have won their last three away games and are unbeaten on the road since their 3-0 loss to Bayern on November 9th (W4, D3).
  • Wolfsburg have collected just one point from their last three games, conceding 13 goals in the process. VfL’s tally of 20 goals conceded since the winter break is a league high.
  • VfL have scored in each of their 17 Bundesliga games since a 2-0 loss to Braunschweig on matchday eight. Only Bayern are currently on a longer goalscoring run (62 games).
  • Alongside Bayern, Augsburg have collected the most points from losing positions this season (both 15). Indeed, Wolfsburg share third place with Schalke (both 14 points).
