Match: Augsburg – Koln Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Friday, 29 April, 2016
Start time: 19:30 GMT
Augsburg hosts Koln in first match from the 32nd round of Bundesliga. The meeting is Friday, April 29, from 21:30 at “WWK Arena”.
Three rounds before the end of the season Augsburg are with five points over the relegation zone on the 12th position. Success against Koln will ensure their stay in the top flight next season. Augsburg is in very good form, having won their last three league games. In the last round they beat Wolfsburg as a guest with 2 0, and before that won over Stuttgart (1:0) and Werder Bremen (2:1). This good series allow the team to get away from the danger zone and doigravat season a little more relaxed.
At home “The Fuggerstadter” have only won three of the championship are presented far more strongly in an away game. Now, however, they are required to record a good result, because in a possible loss and successes of the occupants below them in the standings, the next two rounds could be life or death for the team of Markus Weinzierl.
Guests from Cologne have a total of 40 points and occupy 8th place in the standings. “The Billy Goats” are only five points less than six Mainz, so this match is far from irrelevant to them. Given that the next round host Werder and in the last round visit of Borussia Dortmund, who have nothing to play and Peter Stoger’s team have a good chance to qualify in the Europa League. Of course their hopes will remain alive only on success in Augsburg on Friday night.
During his last visit in Bundesliga Koln beat Mainz 3:2 and in the previous ten games away from home there is only one loss. The team walk away with three points and they visits the much stronger teams like Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen, so there are chances of winning the upcoming visit of Augsburg.
Augsburg took the three points in the first clash between the two teams on a “RheinEnergieStadion” and Cologne will seek revenge. Both teams motivation is high because everyone needs points to fulfill its goal this season. That is why I expect good football and goals from both teams in this game.
