Augsburg is still under threat
Augsburg is 6 points away from the danger zone. And he still doesn't feel completely at ease about surviving in the Bundesliga.
The team is in a series of 3 games without a win, 2 of which are losses. But these defeats are not very well deserved according to xG data .
In addition, Augsburg has not lost at home since early February.
Felix Udukai is sent off for a foul. But after serving sanctions, Daniel Kaligiuri and Rani Khedira return.
Cologne has to take risks
Cologne has no alternative to victory, as it is in the relegation zone. Being 4 points from the rescue position.
True, the Goats have an equal number of points with Hertha, who are in the playoffs. But they also played 2 games more than them.
Last week they beat Leipzig 2-1 at home. But xG data shows that their success was undeserved.
Outside, however, they are in a series of 5 consecutive defeats.
Kinglis Ehitsibue has been penalized and will not play.
Forecast for Augsburg - Cologne
Augsburg has not lost this rivalry with Cologne for 10 years.
And now the situation in the standings is such that guests must take risks and seek victory at all costs.
The hosts can afford to be in a waiting position until they inflict the deadly blow.
But since Augsburg would be happy with a draw, I provide myself with a 0.0 Asian handicap .
This means that in the event of a draw, the bet is refunded.
