STUTTGART WIN AGAIN!

That's seven points from the last three games for Stuttgart, who've come from behind in all of them. Tremendous fight shown by Matarazzo's men - they're now up to 14th on goal difference!

COSTLY MISS?

Stuttgart try to walk it in, but Dorsch pulls off a heroic goal-line challenge to deny Führich. Matarrazo was already celebrating!

ONE-WAY TRAFFIC

Stuttgart are buzzing around the Augsburg area as Gruezo concedes a free-kick for a foul on Kalajdzic, just left of centre, 20 yards from goal. Marmoush's effort goes behind off the top of the Augsburg wall.
55'

STUTTGART PUSHING

Stuttgart come again as Führich powers into the Augsburg box. He hooks over a cross bound for Kalajdzic, but Gikiewicz punches clear, colliding with Winther in the process. Stuttgart had a penalty shout for a possible handball against Hahn moments earlier - not given.
52'

SOSA THREAT

Sosa gets round Andre Hahn and cuts a ball back from the by-line, but Augsburg smuggle it away. Stuttgart very much on top.

BEHIND THEIR MEN

The Stuttgart fans are in fine voice, despite the scoreline. They appreciate the effort their team are putting in, and appreciate they're a shade unfortunate to be trailing.

QUICK-FIRE GOALS!

Stuttgart deservedly level when Anton heads in a Sosa free-kick. Parity is shortlived, though. Augsburg attack from the restart, with Gregoritsch collecting Maier's pass into the box and firing beyond Müller. High drama at the end of a pulsating half!

HALF CHANCE!

Sosa's taking the game by the scruff of the neck. He has a shot blocked before winning a free-kick out on the left. Mavropanos helps on the cross, but Endo can't get on the end of it, and Gikiewicz is down to smother.
38'

STUTTGART KNOCKING ON THE DOOR

Sosa collects a slide-rule pass and crosses low, rather than for Kalajdzic. Marmoush goes for goal, but Gruezo gets in a block. Mavropanos meets the ensuing corner, with his header cleared off the line by Hahn.
34'

ROUTE ONE

Augsburg go long this time, but Müller's out towards the edge of his area before Vargas can bring it under wraps.
31'

KALAJDZIC HEADER!

Augsburg fail to defend another cross from the right. Endo flicks it on to the towering Kalajdzic, who very nearly catches Gikiewicz off his line with his header.

KALAJDZIC!

Stuttgart's best chance by a mile. Marmoush cushions a long punt into the area down into the path of Kalajdzic. He turns his man on the penalty spot and lets fly, but Oxford is there with a crucial block.
23'

CLOSE!

A free-kick from the right is cleared only as far as Tomas, who's a few yards inside the box. He knows exactly what he wants to do as he jinks inside, before whipping a fierce effort narrowly wide of the top corner. Gikiewicz wasn't getting there.
15'

STUTTGART PROMISE

Quick passing from Stuttgart allows Tomas to get in behind Iago. He goes into the box, but looses his footing as he cuts in from the byline, and the visitors clear. Let-off - Kalajdzic was lying in wait for the cross.
9'

NO PENALTY

Marmoush goes down over the advancing Gikiewicz. The referee has a look, but nothing's given. The Stuttgart striker was looking for that.
7'

AUGSBURG LEAD!

Sucker punch for Stuttgart. Maier's closed down on the left of the area, but Iago is first to the loose ball. The Brazilian chips a cross over to the corner of the six-yard box, where Hahn thumps a volley under Müller. Stuttgart completely switched off - Augsburg forge ahead!

HOME TO HAUNT?

Weinzierl, who oversaw 23 Bundesliga matches in charge of Stuttgart in 2018/19, has recorded more wins against his former club than any team he’s faced (eight from 10 meetings - all with Augsburg). He is also one shy of his 100th Bundesliga victory as a coach.
2'

BIG CHANCE!

Marmoush's inventive flick on halfway sends Führich scampering free. He drives into the box, but is denied at the near post by Gikiewicz. The ball rebounds out to Endo, who's denied a clear sight of goal by a swarm of Augsburg shirts.

MOMENT'S REFLECTION

Those in attendance pay their respects to former DFB president Egidius Braun, who passed away on 16 March, at the age of 97.

WATCH: PEPI TIME?

Ricardo Pepi scored 13 times in 31 MLS games in 2021, but is 266 minutes of Bundesliga without a goal. Can the teenager - named in the USMNT's March roster - break his duck in Stuttgart?

BIG DAY AT THE BOTTOM

Hertha and Bielefeld are the teams currently either side of Stuttgart in the standings. They're up against Hoffenheim and Mainz respectively. We'll bring you updates from those games as we go.

WATCH: KLINSMANN BACKS STUTTGART TO STAY AFLOAT

Former Stuttgart striker Jürgen Klinsmann believes his former club Stuttgart have what it takes to pull clear of the relegation zone.

WEINZIERL'S VIEW

"We showed in Bielefeld that we're more than capable of getting results in these sorts of games," Weinzierl said prior to the contest. "The postponement was frustrating because it stalled our rhythm. We were on form, and we want to build on that. We want to finally win two games on the bounce."

WATCH: ARMINIA BIELEFELD 0-1 AUGSBURG

Daniel Caligiuri was Augsburg's matchwinner on Matchday 25. It means Markus Weinzierl's team are now unbeaten in two, following their 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund.

TWELFTH MAN

Over 51,000 tickets have been sold for today's game, with Stuttgart head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo hoping the added support will propel his side to another positive result. "Good results and performances give us confidence," he said. "But we're really happy about the number of fans. They're always behind us and push us forward."

WATCH: THE SOSA-SASA DOUBLE ACT

Borna Sosa has assisted Sasa Kalajdzic's last two Bundesliga goals, and eight since the start of last season. It's fair to assume VfB would not be in the position they are now, had big Sasa not missed such a large chuck of the campaign through injury. He was Stuttgart's 16-goal top scorer last term as they finished ninth.

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS

With Hiroki Ito inavailable, Pascal Stenzel starts in the Stuttgart defence. That's the only change from the side that beat Gladbach 3-2 and drew 1-1 with Union Berlin. Augsburg have had an extra week off following the postponement of their game in Mainz. Andre Hahn and Niklas Dorsch return after missing the win in Bielefeld through suspension, though the latter is benched in favour of Carlos Gruezo. Frederik Winther continues in defence, with Felix Uduokhai only fit enough for the bench.

STUTTGART STARTING LINE-UP

Müller - Stenzel, Mavropanos, Anton, Sosa - Endo (c), Karazor, Führich - Tomas, Kalajdzic, Marmoush

AUGSBURG SUBS

RELEGATION SIX-POINTER

A huge game in the context of the relegation battle. Stuttgart have reignited their surival push with four points from their last two games, but are still only above the automatic relegation zone on goal difference alone, as well as being two points adrift of outright safety. Victory today would take them level on points with visitors Augsburg and - depending on results elsewhere - into the safe house.
