Both teams have had equal share of the past meetings, they have both won 4 games against each other and drew 2, the result is same at both home grounds, they have both won twice in each home ground and drew once.

Augsburg vs Koln: Prediction

This is a tough one to say, both team seem to have just swung back to winning ways, Cologne have a good away record recently and that might help them get something out of this one.

But going with their head to head statistics, Augsburg are unbeaten in their recent 4 games, won 3 and drew 1 and have a better record recently than Cologne. I think the game will go either way and a draw is not likely to occur.
