Augsburg Preview

Augsburg made it to the Europa League in 2015/16, and then went sharply downhill last season. They appear to have continued that trend a little so far, as they have yet to win a match this season. They lost to a lower league side in DFB Pokal competition before losing to Hamburg on the opening day. Last weekend, they went to Borussia Monchengladbach and scored goals at extreme opposite times of the game to steal a point. They grabbed the first goal after less than a minute through Alfred FiFinnbogason and then grabbed a second in the 89th minute via Sergio Cordova. In between, though, they gave up goals in the seventh and 30th minutes, to Denis Zakaria and Oscar Wendt, respectively, to see them end up with a good point in the end.

Augsburg Team News

Augsburg manager Manuel Baum will be happy to see that his side is fully intact for this home match against Cologne this weekend.

FC Cologne Preview

Cologne have endured a similarly tough start to the league season, much like their hosts on Saturday have. They did win their DFB Pokal match, but they have not gotten a single point from their opening two matches this season in the Bundesliga. They lost 1-0 to Borussia Monchengladbach to begin the season, and they then followed that with a 1-3 loss at home to Hamburg two weeks back. They were two goals down after just 34 minutes as Andre Hahn and Bobby Wood scored two goals in six minutes to condemn them to defeat. A 97th minute finish from Frederick Sorensen was mere consolation as they conceded just three minutes later to Lewis Holtby, ending their short-lived hopes of a near-miraculous comeback.

FC Cologne Team News

Cologne will be missing goalkeeper Thomas Kessler, left back Konstantin Rausch, and winger Marcel Risse due to injuries.
