Our match prediction:
The Fuggerstadter surprised Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena and furthered their winning run to three matches (2-0). Alfred Finnbogason’s third goal in as many matches secured a dream start for Augsburg, while Halil Altintop finished the job, creating a five-point cushion between the Bavarians and the dotted line. Markus Weinzierl’s charges now await the Billy Goats, whom they have beaten in three of their last four encounters. Koln have also been successful of late, achieving back-to-back victories over Mainz and Darmstadt so this will be a clash of two in-form sides. Modeste and Risse both scored a brace against Darmstadt, continuing their goal scoring streak and will present a handful to Augsburg’s defence which proved to be rather drafty on home soil, despite the fact they kept their net intact in the last two fixtures. Peter Stoger’s men are undefeated in their previous four away fixtures in the league, and we predict a real nail-bitter, while expecting a share of spoils as the end result.
