Relegation threatened Augsburg will host a Hamburg team who are also struggling in the league in a game that could decide who is relegated from the Bundesliga this season.

Augsburg are currently in the relegation playoffs spot (16th) after collecting just 32 points from 30 league games.

They need a win in this game that could take them up to 13th place if other results go their way.

They currently have just one win from their last 6 games and have lost 4 of those fixtures.

They won their last home game, 2-1, but prior to that match, they lost 2 in 4 home games while drawing the other 2.

If they lose this game, they would still remain 16th but will be looking over their shoulder as the end of the season approaches.

Hamburg have not had a better season themselves – they are 15th in the league table, just 1 point above their opponents in this encounter.

A loss would see them fall into the relegation playoff spot.

They are currently on a run of 2 straight losses and have won only 2 of their last 6 games.

After their shocking 0-3 win away to Leipzig, they have gone 4 away games without a win, losing 3 and drawing one of those games.

They also conceded at least 2 goals in those losses.
