Augsburg vs FC Koln Prediction, Tips & Match Preview

Augsburg vs FC Koln Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on 7 June 2020, Sunday. Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET at the WWK Arena (Augsburg).

The Billy Goats were not even present in the top flight the last season, and as such, they are struggling to keep up with the intense demands of the league. On top of that, Heiko Herrlich’s men have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years, and especially so at this venue. Likely, expect a dominating performance this Sunday at the WWK Arena.

Augsburg vs FC Koln Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The previous five wins had gone to Herrlich’s men.
  • The last the Billy Goats won against this rival was back in 2011.
  • Two of the previous four match-ups saw Herrlich’s men scoring two or more goals.
  • At this venue, the hosts won four of the last six encounters.
  • The Goats could score a total of one goal from their preceding four visits to this stadium.

Augsburg vs FC Koln Prediction

Herrlich’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Hertha. The home team found the back of the net in the 23rd minute, and defended well throughout the fixture to protect that lead. Despite persistent efforts, Herrlich’s men could not find an equalizer, and in the 90+3rd minute, the hosts scored once again to complete the formalities.

The Billy Goats lost 2-4 at home the prior game week, against Leipzig. The home team had scored the first goal, and that too early in the 7th minute itself. However, the visitors scored twice before the half-time break, and later added two more goals to complete the proceedings.

As things stand, Herrlich’s men hold the upper hand. The reason being – the Goats are vastly inexperienced in this top flight, as they were promoted from the 2.Bundesliga just at the end of last season. They are struggling to deal with the challenges of the top tier.

As of now, they are winless in their past five overall games, and have recorded a total of three wins away from home since August. Moreover, it’s been nine years since they have won against this opponent, and they have also conceded two or more goals in two of the past four h2h encounters.

Moreover, at this venue, it’s been 12 years since the Goats have recorded a win, and they have scored a single goal here since 2012, while the hosts scored two or more goals in the prior two meetings. Considering these observations, it’s deduced that Augsburg are about to deliver a worthwhile performance this Sunday.
