Augsburg and Wolfsburg will meet on Saturday, August 27 at 16.30 in the first round of the Bundesliga, 2016/2017 edition.
Augsburg, after he saved from relegation last season will debut in the championship against an opponent hard to beat, animated by a great desire to return to the forefront of the German championship. Augsburg lost him Weinzeirl coach, who signed with Schalke 04. In its place was brought Dirk Schuster, a technician with extensive experience in the Bundesliga.
On the other side, Wolfsburg managed to keep it on Draxler, despite the fact that he was courted by big European clubs. “Wolves” have preferred to pass another striker value on Zaza from Juventus, but eventually they preferred the “veteran” Mario Gomez. So this season, coach Dieter Hecking has no other excuse if the team not finishing in a European place.
Last season, even if Augsburg was ranked just two points away from the relegation zone, at home lost only five of the 17 matches played and had a positive goal difference of 23-18.
Instead, Wolfsburg fared catastrophic foreign lands (3 wins in 17 matches played away). Only relegated Eintracht Frankfurt has accumulated fewer points.

Wolfsburg (4-1-4-1): Benaglio Vieirinha, Bruma, Ascues, Rodriguez; Guilovogui; Caligiuri, Draxler, Luiz Gustavo, Didavi, Gomez.
Both teams are motivated to start with the right technicians prepare both the Bundesliga and relatively offensive systems for this match, so you have to expect both goals in the gates.
