Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Koln
German Bundesliga
Date: 13 March 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: BayArena.

Bayer Leverkusen kept mighty Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw away at Allianz Arena last weekend. They will thus enter the home fixture against FC Koln in the highest of spirits aiming to back up such a big result and make another big step towards securing the top-four finish in the current Bundesliga campaign.

Die Werkself are now third in the league table with four points between them and fifth-placed RB Leipzig (the top-four teams enter Champions League next year).

They have been on a great run of form this year, especially at BayArena where Gerardo Seoane’s men have been scoring goals for fun of late.

Bayer Leverkusen have thus notched two or more goals in each of the last nine home fixtures across competitions.

They have won all of the last three outings at BayArena, netting an impressive tally of twelve goals along the way.

Bayer could easily maintain such a wonderful spell of attacking form here against FC Koln whose form has seen somewhat of a slide in the recent weeks.

Steffen Baumgart’s troops lost two of the last four outings and they failed to see off the rock-bottomed Greuther Furth in the previous away fixture in the league (a 1-1 draw).

FC Koln are winless in three straight away matches in Bundesliga and they have shipped six goals in the process.
