Tip Reasoning

  • Cologne have the Bundesliga’s seventh-best attack but its sixth-worst defence, and both teams have scored in 12 of their 14 league games.
  • Despite being in danger of relegation, Augsburg have scored in all but one of their last seven games, earning wins over Bayern Munich and Stuttgart recently.
  • Both teams have scored in four of the last five matches between the two teams.
  • Cologne are unbeaten at home in the Bundesliga this term.

Entertaining Cologne Pushing for Europe

Cologne’s current four-match unbeaten run may have featured three draws, but a win on Friday night would see them move into the European qualification spots, at least for the time being. Having thrashed Borussia Monchengladbach 4-1 in their last home game, the Billy Goats drew 1-1 at lowly Arminia last time out.

Cologne have not lost a home match in the Bundesliga this season, with their only reverses coming at Bayern, Dortmund and Hoffenheim. An inability to turn draws into wins has been their Achilles’ heel; they’ve drawn half of their 14 Bundesliga games, but have entertained whilst doing so, netting 23 and conceding 23.

Augsburg remain in the Bundesliga’s relegation playoff place after losing 3-2 to Bochum last week, but a shock win over Bayern and a 97th-minute equaliser at Hertha have pulled them closer to safety. The Bavarian club have scored in all but one of their last seven league games, but a poor record of 25 goals conceded has left them scrapping for safety.

Hosts to Edge it, but Concede

Cologne have scored in all but two of their league fixtures, but not kept a single clean sheet in the Bundesliga. Augsburg’s win over Bayern demonstrated their ability to compete, and with both teams’ defensive paucity in mind, both teams to score looks likely.

With Cologne unbeaten at home and looking to push for Europe, a home win with both teams netting may be a good punt for this encounter. A 2-1 win for Steffen Baumgart’s men looks a strong correct score prediction, with Augsburg having not won on the road this season.
