Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Augsburg win

Odds: 4/5 @ Pribet

Desperate to make up some ground in the European chase, Augsburg will welcome Koln to Bavaria on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Augsburg might have found themselves at the heart of a Bundesliga relegation scrap last season, Jess Thorup’s men have come roaring back this time around. Continuing to receive a string of plaudits from across Germany’s elite this year, the Bavaria-based outfit are still dreaming of the chance to mount a famous European charge over the final couple of months. Heading into March’s international break with a stunning performance as they stormed their way to a 3-1 romp away at Wolfsburg, the former Copenhagen boss should find the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Opening March with a 6-0 victory against Darmstadt, Sunday’s hosts have won all of their previous four Bundesliga showdowns on the bounce. With their purple patch underlined by a 2-1 win against Freiburg on February 25th, Thorup’s men have won all of their last four contests by an aggregate score of 12-2. Finding a real clinical edge in the final third, Augsburg should be relishing heir return from March’s fortnight interval here.

As for the visitors, enduring what has been a real Bundesliga nightmare this season, Koln appear to be limping their way back to a second-tier return. Last seen heading into March’s international break with a woeful 5-1 drumming at the hands of RB Leipzig, Timo Schultz has a major job on his hands. Marking their return from the fortnight interval sat seven points adrift of Bundesliga safety, the Bill Goats are tipped as a landslide relegation contender in 2024. In fact, along with failing to win any of their previous six appearances, Koln have also registered just a single win from any of their last 13 outings – a rut that stems all the way back to December 1st. Facing what should be a stern examination when they make their Bundesliga return this weekend, it should also be highlighted that Koln have collected just a sole win on their travels so far this season. Given what has been a huge recent gulf in class between Sunday’s opponents, we are expecting a home win for the European outsiders here.
