FC Koln vs Augsburg Predictions and Betting Tips
FC Koln vs Augsburg Key Stats
- Both teams have scored in 100% of Koln’s home matches in the Bundesliga this season.
- Both teams have scored in seven of Augsburg’s last eight Bundesliga matches
- Augsburg are without a clean sheet in nine league games.
- Koln are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Bundesliga this season.
On a positive path
Friday’s hosts kept things ticking along last time out, as they avoided defeat for the fourth match in a row, this time drawing away against Arminia Bielefeld. Given that they went a goal up after 17 minutes, a lead which they held into half-time, the visitors on that occasion were probably disappointed not to have claimed all three points, but that result took it to four without defeat, which represents solid progress.
What’s more, Steffen Baumgart’s men arrive here off the back of an excellent result in their last home match, beating Gladbach by four goals to one. They’re now unbeaten in seven at home this season, four of which they’ve won, so confidence shouldn’t be lacking in the home dressing room ahead of Friday’s game.
Stopped in their tracks
After beating Bayern Munich against the odds, Augsburg went into their game with Hertha Berlin full of confidence, and while they didn’t come out on top, a draw wasn’t the end of the world and it marked two without defeat for Markus Weinzierl’s men, but it was back to drawing board last time out, as they were stopped in their tracks on home soil by newly promoted Bochum.
After losing last time out, the visitors will be looking to bounce back, but the road isn’t exactly the best place for it. Playing away from home has provided Augsburg with little joy this season, losing four of their last five. They’re also winless in seven away from home this term.
FC Koln vs Augsburg Predictions
If you’re looking to bet on either team to win this fixture, then the hosts are the ones to side with, or at least they are based purely on form, though a bet on the home win at 8/13 represents little value. Instead, ‘Both Teams to Score’, at 8/11, stands out.
For starters, no Bundesliga team has both scored and conceded in the same game more frequently than Koln this season, with both teams finding the net 86% of the time. Interestingly, both teams have scored in each of Koln’s seven home league matches, while if we combine Koln’s home games with Augsburg’s away games, only two clean sheets show up.
