Azaough started his career with the junior teams of FSV Frankfurt and Eintracht Frankfurt. In 1999, he moved to Mainz 05. In the season 2000–01 he played his first matches for the second team of FSV Mainz in the Oberliga. Azaough was transferred from the amateur team to the professional team in September 2002, and from this time was given a regular position in the team. When he helped them to promote into the Bundesliga in the season 2003–04, he had played 48 games and scored four goals in the Second Bundesliga.
First Bundesliga season
Azaough missed the first three matches of Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga due to an illness. But already in his second match at the highest German level he scored a goal. During a game with VfL Wolfsburg on 30 October 2004 his playing career was curtailed severely by a clash with another player. Later this season he was recompensed financially for this injury.
At the end of the calendar year 2004, however, he moved to Schalke 04. It wasn't a very harmonious transfer: in the beginning FC Schalke 04 even refused to pay the transfer fee. It took months till the clubs found an agreement.
FC Schalke 04
It took months of rehabilitation till Azaough could play again. On 14 January 2005, he made his debut for Schalke 04 in a friendly against SC Paderborn. On 4 March 2005, he played his first Bundesliga match for 'S04' against Hannover 96. Azaough scored his first goal in the UEFA Cup match against US Palermo on 16 March 2006.
FSV Mainz 05
In the season 2006–07 he played on a loan for FSV Mainz again. But he returned in the next season to Schalke 04.
Since he did not play very often he was loaned to VfL Bochum for the rest of the season. After the 2007–08 season, Azaouagh was transferred to Bochum. His contract ran until 30 June 2012.
1. FC Kaiserslautern
On 12 February 2015, German newspaper Bild, published a controversial article with the title "Former Schalke-Star now a Salafist?". Azaouag denied this, saying he is a Muslim but is not a salafist. He also claimed that this Bild article was responsible for him not being able to get a new contract.
