• Gladbach have won just two of their 11 Bundesliga matches against Augsburg (D4, L5). This equates to 0.9 points per game – they only have a weaker return vs. Leipzig (0.5).
  • FCA have won two of their last three league games (vs. Köln and Hamburg). However, these are their only victories since the start of March (D2, L5).
  • Augsburg have their last four on the road. The negative club record of five consecutive top-flight away defeats, set in early 2015, is under threat.
  • Manuel Baum’s side ended their club record 15-game wait for a clean sheet last weekend vs. HSV (4-0). It was their first shutout since facing Gladbach earlier in the season.
  • Borussia have kept six clean sheets in 2017 (same as BVB and TSG) – only Bayern have more (8). Augsburg are the only side to record just one shutout this calendar year.
  • Andre Hahn is on the brink of his 50th Bundesliga victory. The forward made 48 top-flight appearances (12 goals + 10 assists) for Augsburg between January 2013 and summer 2014, earning a call-up to the national side in the process.
  • Lars Stindl has scored in his last four Bundesliga outings – his best-ever run in the top flight. Stindl is Gladbach’s top scorer in the league this season (11 goals; new personal record).
  • Martin Hinteregger faces his old side this weekend – he made 10 Bundesliga appearances for Gladbach in the second half of the 2015/16 season, scoring two own goals in the process that period. However, he scored the winner for FCA in the reverse fixture.
  • The reverse fixture saw Manuel Baum take charge of Augsburg for the first time. They beat Andre Schubert’s Gladbach 1-0 back then.
  • Raul Bobadilla (59 Bundesliga appearances, 8 goals for BMG) scored his fourth league goal of the season as he made his comeback vs. HSV. All four have come after the 85th minute – the only player with as many in this period is super-sub Nils Petersen (also 4).
