Josha Vagnoman is back in training with the team but it is too early for him to be part of the squad for the Augsburg match.
VfB are unbeaten in their last four home games against Augsburg, winning each of the past three. The last time the two teams met was in March of this year, when the lads from Cannstatt won 3-2 thanks to goals from Waldemar Anton, Omar Marmoush and Tiago Tomas.
