FC Augsburg – 1.FC Köln

On Sunday, the 27th matchday of the Bundesliga will be played again and in this hot phase, two teams with completely different ambitions will meet. FC Augsburg, one of the surprise teams of the season with its sights set on Europe, will face 1. FC Köln, a team in the midst of a relegation battle and currently playing for survival. Find out who has the edge in this duel in our Augsburg – Cologne betting tip.

The last matchday before the international break was a very successful one for Augsburg. Away against VfL Wolfsburg, they played in superior numbers after a questionable red card in the 45th minute for the home side and were able to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 victory. Augsburg won’t care about this presumably wrong decision regarding the color of the card and the away win gives the team a boost in the race for the European places.

The expectedly difficult match on the last weekend before the international break really blew up in Cologne’s face. With an extremely respectable performance, Cologne managed to go into the break with a 1:1 draw against the bulls from Leipzig in their own stadium. After that, however, they were left reeling and after 90 minutes faced a 5-1 defeat, which was well deserved. They must now shake off this setback against Augsburg and gather all their strength to fully embrace the relegation battle

Augsburg Form & Balance Check

Augsburg are currently in outstanding form and are proving it week in, week out. In 2024, they are the fifth-best team in the Bundesliga with 17 points from ten games and even occupy fourth place in the table for the second half of the season, ahead of record champions Bayern Munich. With their nine wins so far this season, they are in a strong seventh place and a win against relegation candidates Cologne would keep them within striking distance of the European places.

Club record set

The win at VfL Wolfsburg was Augsburg’s fourth in a row and set a new club record. Four wins in a row, a feat previously only achieved in 2014, when they finished in fifth place and took part in the Europa League. Jess Thorup’s team will be highly motivated to set a new club record and with an opponent like Cologne they have a doable task ahead of them

Augsburg facts & analysis
  • Fourth place in the second round table
  • Four wins in a row
  • First leg 1:1 draw

Cologne Form & Balance Sheet Check

Cologne are currently fighting for survival. With 14 defeats and just three wins in their 26 league games to date, Cologne find themselves in 17th place, which would mean direct relegation. They have won just once in their last ten games, drawn five and lost four. Although they are only one point off the relegation places, they are six points clear of 15th place and the associated relegation. Cologne’s short-term goal will therefore be to secure a relegation spot and then see if there is still room for improvement.

The worst offense in the league

Cologne have scored just ten goals in their last ten games and are the worst attacking team in the league with a total of 20 goals scored in their 26 league games. At these times, they are particularly reliant on the skills of Davie Selke, for example, who has the ability to be dangerous going forward. Standards can also be a tool, as in the game against Leipzig

Cologne facts & analysis
  • Badest offense in the league
  • Only three wins this season
  • 17th place in the table

Augsburg will be without their top striker Demirovic and Beljo will replace him in the offense. In addition, Rexhbecaj, who has recovered from his injury, will probably rotate back into the starting eleven for Jensen.

Hübers and Thielmann will be back in the starting eleven after serving their suspensions. Finkgräfe was only able to train to a limited extent last week due to back problems and is therefore doubtful. Paqarada would start at left back for him

Augsburg – Cologne head-to-head & stats

In total, the two teams have met 24 times and the numbers are more even than ever. Augsburg won eight times, Cologne eight times and the two teams drew eight times, including in the first leg when they shared the points 1:1
