FC Augsburg or Draw
RB Leipzig have the best defence in German top-flight football and have conceded less than a goal from their thirty outings. FC Cologne disrupted their average with a 2-1 win, giving themselves a chance for salvation in the Bundesliga. They will travel to Augsburg with similar ideas, who find are in a mini rut of their own. However, the hosts are on a four-match unbeaten run at home and should do enough to claim the points on offer.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
The hosts have seen 17 of their 30 games see less than three goals, the trend picking up with their loss of goalscoring touch. In the battle for survival, they will need to give a good account of their abilities and make sure Cologne's tally of 54 goals conceded increases on the night. With the Billy Goats involved in 15 goals from their last five away games, all of which resulted in defeats for them.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Like their rivals on the night, the Fuggerstädters are unreliable in the attack. They have only scored six times in their last five home games, an improvement on the two scored in five away games by Cologne. Teams troubled by relegation can always spring a surprise and it would not be out of order if an open game with goals on both ends is witnessed. With both sides looking dodgy at the back and in dire need of points, expect scorers in action by the teams in action.
Augsburg vs Cologne: Team News and Match Preview
Heiko Herrlich's men are in dire straits. The Fuggerstädters have failed to score in four of their last five games, slipping down the Bundesliga rankings in the process. With the end of the season looming over the horizon, they have a seven-point distance from the relegation playoff slot but given their form, anything is possible. Without a reliable scorer in their ranks and topscorer, Andre Hahn consigned to the bench, they are in need of divine inspiration.
The Billy Goats sprung a fast one on RB Leipzig and effectively handed the Bundesliga title to Bayern Munich. The win over Julien Nagelsmann's side ended their three-match losing run and Cologne will be looking to build upon their performance. They take on the challenge of out of sorts Augsburg, who have only scored twice in their last five games. Friedhelm Funkel will be keeping his cards close to his chest but there is no denying that Jonas Hector will be instrumental to his plans.
