Augsburg vs Cologne Predictions and Betting Tips
Cologne travel to the WWK Arena to take on Augsburg with the aim of securing maximum points to move out of the relegation zone. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Augsburg head into this game with the superior head-to-head record having won seven out of the 19 times both sides have met compared to Cologne’s four. In their most recent matchup, Augsburg recorded a hard-fought 1-0 victory courtesy of a 77th minute winner from Iago.
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Augsburg travelled to Frankfurt to take on Adolf Huetter’s side who have been in inspiring form through the campaign. Goals from Andre Silva and Martin Hinterreger condemned Augsburg to a 2-0 defeat as they still search for their first win since beating Hoffenheim about three weeks ago.
Cologne ended a nine-game winless run as they went on to beat Leipzig in a dramatic 2-1 victory. This would certainly go a long way with regards to their confidence and of course, points earned, as they look to save themselves from relegation having spent only two seasons since gaining promotion back in the 18/19 season.
