Reason For Augsburg vs Cologne Predictions

  • Four of the last six league meetings have finished draws
  • Both teams have scored in each of Cologne’s last six matches

Inconsistent Augsburg tough to trust

Augsburg have won only two of their 12 Bundesliga games this year and have had a mixed start since football resumed in Germany with their 3-0 win at Schalke overshadowed by defeats to Wolfsburg and Hertha Berlin.

Heiko Herrlich’s side have also been held to a goalless draw at home to rock-bottom Paderborn in that time and, as a result, are edging ever closer to the drop. They are going to need to add to their 31-point total in order to secure their top-flight status.

Augsburg have suffered defeat nine times in their last 13 outings and the potential absence of wing-back Philip Max, arguably their most influential player who missed last weekend’s 2-0 loss at Hertha, will make things hard for them in their bid to stop the rot.

That said, Augsburg should be buyed by the fact they are unbeaten in their last ten meetings against Cologne and the visitors, for all their attacking quality, have been extremely generous at the back in recent league outings.

Cologne to play their part in a thriller

Both teams have scored in each of Cologne’s last six matches and we are predicting the net to bulge at both ends when they make their trip to Augsburg.

Since football’s return, Cologne have played out 2-2 draws at home to Mainz and Fortuna Dusseldorf, while they also scored in defeat at Hoffenheim despite having been reduced to ten men after just 25 minutes.

Cologne were beaten 4-2 at home to Leipzig on Monday, extending their winless run to five games, but they carry a potent attacking threat with 12-goal Jhon Cordoba leading their line.

Despite having collected only 13 points from 14 away games, Cologne have failed to score just three times on their travels and only the division’s top five and Frankfurt have netted more league goals than them this season.

However, with no clean sheet in six and 14 goals conceded in that, there are obvious concerns for them defensively and Augsburg should make their breakthrough.

Pair may share the spoils

Just three points separate these sides in the Bundesliga table and we are predicting a close game between the pair at the Augsburg Arena.

Four of the last six league meetings have finished all-square, which includes a 1-1 draw in Cologne earlier in the campaign, and it would be a result that would suit both teams.

With goals seemingly high on the agenda, opting for a 2-2 draw could be the best approach for a correct score prediction. Cologne have drawn two of their four games since Bundesliga’s resumption by that scoreline.
