Koln vs Augsburg
Date: Saturday 26th November, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion, Koln.
Augsburg finally managed to play back-to-back matches without suffering a defeat as they kept clean sheets in consecutive matches with Ingolstadt and Hertha BSC, taking four points which climbed them to 12th position in Bundesliga standings.
Dirk Schuster can thus be very happy knowing that his team finally showed decent performances in the defensive line, which was more than vulnerable at the start of the season. The team will face a very difficult challenge in the 12th round though since they will be travelling to RheinEnergieStadion to face one of the most pleasant surprises of the season.
Koln are playing amazing this year. The Austrian manager Peter Stoger managed to transform the team which was fighting for the mere survival in the elite class of German football to a club which is challenging the very top of the table after 11 matches.
Koln will enter the match with Augsburg full of confidence after a thrilling performance at BORUSSIA-PARK in the last round, when they have claimed a 1-2 win. The defensive line is the better part of the team, while the French striker Anthony Modeste is playing the best season in his life, having smashed in as many as 12 goals in 11 matches. Modeste has been red hot lately netting nine goals in last seven Bundesliga matches.
Koln vs Augsburg: Head-to-Head Stats
The teams have four wins each in 11 head to head matches. The two games from last season did not offer plenty of goals, as Koln failed to score in three matches in a row against Augsburg. With the in-form Modeste, we believe that the host will finally manage to end the negative run.
Koln vs Augsburg: Prediction
We do not expect a goal feast since the visitors have tightened up the defensive line recently, managing to keep two clean sheets in a row. However, we will go with Koln to keep up the fine form and win the match at more than attractive 3/4 odds! We would be fools not to try with Modeste to score any-time at 6/5.
