The hosts currently sit seventh with three wins and three draws in seven games so far. They are unbeaten in last four league ties and head into this off the back of a huge hardly-fought last gasp 1-2 victory away at Darmstadt on Tuesday evening.

Die Arminien were trailing all up until the 90th-minute when substitute Roberto Massimo brought them on level terms. Three minutes later, left-back Florian Hartherz completed the amazing comeback netting the match-winner in the stoppage-time.

Arminia Bielefeld vs FC Koln: Head-to-head

  • It’s been four years since these two likes have last locked horns in an official affair and back then they were also battling it out in the second tier of the German football.
  • Koln picked up two clean sheet wins in the 2013/14 campaign (1-0 and 2-0).
  • The Billy Goats lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of the landmark 30th meeting with Bielefeld.
  • The two teams met each other in a pre-season friendly in the summer of 2016 when Koln took a 2-3 victory.

Arminia Bielefeld vs FC Koln: Prediction

Koln also performed a comeback to pull off a 2-1 victory in the mid-week tie. They saw off Ingolstadt at home thanks to a Simon Terrode brace within five minutes. The German striker thus continued his scintillating run of form at the start of the season. He bagged as many as 10 goals in seven appearances.

Terrode bagged as many as 14 goals in last six matches in all competitions (including four past BFC Dynamo in DFB Pokal a month ago). He should have enough space to deliver past attacking-minded Arminia here and we just have to consider backing him to score anytime at the 1.80 odds here.

Backing goals seems to be the best of betting calls here. We’ll go for it and take the BTTS option at the odds of 1.57 as the main pick.

Arminia Bielefeld vs FC Koln: Bet Tips

  • BTTS @ 1.57 (4/7)
  • Simon Terrode to score anytime @ 1.80 (4/5).
