The brutal run of matches, on either side of the COVID-19 break, is over for FC Augsburg.

How is this for a list of fixtures? Fuggerstädter had Bayer Leverkusen (2-0 loss), Borussia Monchengladbach (3-2 loss), and Bayern Munich (2-0 loss) before the break, then came out and had to play VfL Wolfsburg (2-1 loss). That is four of the current top six in the table.

This weekend, though, Augsburg beat Schalke 04 3-0 (written as 0-3 as Augsburg was the visitor), leading to one of the best tweets of the year from the Augsburg admin:

So now, with a run of games against teams in the bottom half of the table, can Augsburg make a run at a UEFA Europa League spot?

Maybe.

It would have to start today, with a win over last place SC Paderborn 07. That is the play in this match.
