It is no win in six for Bochum in a run that has dragged them back into an automatic relegation spot. A win against Augsburg would therefore be vital to their survival chances!

Augsburg's 1-0 victory over Union Berlin was their first success in eight Bundesliga ties. The three points helped them to keep clear of the relegation quagmire, and a win in Bochum could ensure survival (depending on Schalke and Stuttgart's results).
