AUG Vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: Augsburg VS Koln Bundesliga. Adjacent to each other, two waning sides clash heads in a pivotal tie for either side.
On a two match losing spree and winless in their last five encounters, for Koln, today’s encounter comes bearing with it colossal ramifications. Defeated 4-2 by RB Leipzig the last time around, the 12th placed side finds itself being eventually dragged down into the contentious relegation scrape as the league traverses towards its culminating stages.
The only source of solace for the visitors today remains their attacking component. Despite suffering appalling defeats, the attacking contingent has kept functioning at its 100%, a docket which will be looking to guide the side towards much needed three points in this fixture.
And up against an Augsburg side which has shipped the 56 goals this term, Koln will be quietly confident of raking in a win. In 13th slot, Augsburg themselves are with the solitary win in their last five encounters with the side suffering a listless 2-0 defeat to Hertha Berlin the last time around.
We should be in for a cracker jacker today with two sides who can’t afford to drop to another defeat taking on each other. As aforementioned, Koln see the scales titled in their favour owing to their eclectic attacking ambit, one which should manage to see the side squirm its way towards an elusive win.

Dream 11 Picks
Responsible for his side keeping two cleansheets since the restart of the league, Andreas Luthe will be our selection as the shot stopper for this one. The Augsburg goal-keeper raked his way two match saving displays, helping his side accrue four points from nothing.
Although a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side today with these two having leaked a horrendous 112 goals in between them, Koln look way the likelier outfit when it comes to stringing a cleansheet today. They are up against an Augsburg side which has a meagre 4 goals in its last five ties, a side Koln will be quietly confident of refraining from scoring.
It’s a narrative we have heavy belief in, one which sees us indulge in the services of Benno Schmitz, Kingsley Ehizibue and Toni Leistner.
Koln’s Florian Kainz has played a quissential role in ensuring his side’s attacking side of the game has gone about its job undeterred. Not only did he score against Hoffenheim but has the 6 assists this season as well, a player who had to become an instant selection for us.
Elsewhere, with Koln having shipped in 56 goals this season, this could very well be the tie for Augsburg to break out of their conundrum. With four goals and three assists, Marco Richter will be accorded a free hand by the side, one which sees us make him the first name from the team.
The indomitable and diminutive partnership of Eduard Lowen and Ruben Vargas will be imbued into our framework as well, two players who have made for daunting viewing for defenders.
With 11 goals and 6 assists, Florian Niederlechner sees himself sitting atop of Augsburg’s scoring ranks this term to make him a must have player from the home side. On the other hand, with five goals and four assists, Mark Uth will be our selection from the opposition with Anthony Modeste being roped in after his recent flair filled attacking showings.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 11 goals meant it was only befitting to make Florian our side’s captain while Uth will be ingrained in as the vice-captain.
