Bundesliga Matchday 32 Betting Tips – FC Augsburg
Augsburg bagged a crucial victory last weekend which has taken the club nearly home and dry in its tussle for Bundesliga survival.
While there will be a couple of notable absentees in the squad, Markus Weinzierl will definitely opt for the 3-4-2-1 system that has paid rich dividends in recent weeks. Rafal Gikiewicz will take his place between the sticks with skipper Jefrrey Gouweleeuw, Reece Oxford and Robert Gumny forming the 3-man backline. Defensively, Augsburg has done a much better job on home-turf in the latter-half of the campaign.
Carlos Gruezo could his spot as the central-midfield partner for Niklas Dorsch after a fine display from the pair in the previous match. Iago is sidelined with injury and Mads Pedersen is suspended for this one so Ruben Vargas could fill in as the wing-back on the left-side with Daniel Caligiuri on the right. Michael Gregoritsch should be the centre-forward with Florian Niderlechner and André Hahn as the supporting-strikers.

Bundesliga Matchday 32 Betting Tips – FC Köln
Köln is making another late charge for a top-6 finish having collected 13 points from its previous 6 Bundesliga matches.
Steffen Baumgart does not have a long injury-list and therefore should retain the 4-2-3-1 formation that he has used in every fixture of this month. Marvin Schwäbe will be the goalkeeper of the side with Luca Kilian and Timo Hübers as the centre-back pairing in front of him. Jonas Hector is ruled out with a head-injury so Jannes Horn will start on the left-side of the defence with Benno Schmitz on the right.
Meanwhile, Salih Özcan will be suspended for this match so Ondrej Duda might have to partner Ellyes Skhiri as the central-midfield duo. Dejan Ljubicic will take regular spot on the right-flank with Florian Kainz on the opposite wing. Mark Uth will operate as an attacking-midfielder in the no.10 role behind the centre-forward Anthony Modeste with both players getting on the score-sheet last week.
