FC Koln vs Augsburg Prediction

FC Koln had their losing streak stretched to four matches on the trot, last week on the road, after the mighty RB Leipzig thrashed them with a 4-1 scorecard. The hosts were downright dismal in that matchup, that too on all fronts.

They recorded no more than one shot on target throughout the ninety minutes as opposed to their counterparts who took eight.

With just two measly wins in the bag, FC Koln are deservedly sitting seventeenth in a cluster of eighteen.

In contrast, Augsburg have been faring slightly better and are currently sporting a six-point cushion above the hosts as well. The away side are also on a winning groove at the moment and have been recording back to back wins in their last two matchups.

Their previous clash at home saw them run riot over Hertha Berlin with four unanswered goals while on the road they edged past Paderborn with a 1-0 scorecard. It is also worth mentioning that the guests are unbeaten in their previous two outings.

To make matters worse for the hosts, the visitors have not admitted defeat in any of their last four visits here in a running. As such, Augsburg are sizing up to be the favorites to emerge victoriously in this one.

Be that as it may, their last two h2h meetings here have finished in a tie. Taking into account that two of the previous four outings for the visitors have also witnessed them secure no more than a point, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Augsburg.

Furthermore, the away side have been tough to breach in their recent trips on the road, and have kept a clean sheet in their last two. Considering that goals have been hard to come by in each of their previous four head to head games at this venue too, expect no more than a goal or two at the most come Saturday.
