Augsburg vs FC Koln
Date: 30 April 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.
FC Koln climbed to the seventh place in the Bundesliga standings after clinching their third consecutive league win last weekend.
The latest Billy Goats’ victims were relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld who fell 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at RheinEnergieStadion.
Mark Uth and Anthony Modeste starred for FC Koln, bagging a goal and an assist each on the occasion.
Interestingly, it was also the third subsequent league game in which FC Koln scored three goals.
The team led by Steffen Baumgart will be hoping to maintain this tremendous spell of form and pick up the fourth successive Bundesliga win on Saturday afternoon when they travel to WWK Arena to take on bottom-half Augsburg in Gameweek 32.
FC Koln are only one point below sixth-placed Union Berlin, meaning they can easily secure the UEFA Europa League football next season.
Augsburg will also enter this tie on a high after a 0-2 victory at Bochum six days ago. It was the third victory in the last five Bundesliga rounds for Markus Weinzierl and his men who are now miles away from the relegation scrap.
Augsburg have shipped only four goals in the last five league matches. It will be very interesting to see how their stern back line will cope with the in-form attack of FC Koln’s on Saturday.
