Bayern Munich vs FC Koln
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern did a huge favor to arch-rivals Dortmund this weekend. The surprise loss that Marco Reus and his boys had suffered against Union Berlin could have hurt them bad. But the Munich outfit was kind enough to not take advantage of the situation.
Not only did they avoid winning, but they put an end to the win streak of the topper, Leipzig as well, allowing Borussia to climb to the second spot.
Kidding aside, Niko Kovac’s men will have to get back to their winning ways pretty soon if they are not to put themselves under early pressure. In that regards, this home game against a newly-promoted side will be hugely helpful to the reigning German champions.
And coming to Koln, they are already finding life tough in the upper-division. So far they have managed a single win from their total four fixtures, losing the other three, and are now supposed to take on the mighty Bavarians.

Bayern Munich vs FC Koln Prediction
The Munich outfit has been reigning supreme in Germany for quite a long time, that not even traditional powers in the top division have been able to challenge them, let alone a new entrant from the 2.Bundesliga. The scales are already tipped in favor of the current champions, and on top of that they are lining up at home.
Moreover, while Koln lost six of their last nine overall games, and three of their previous five road trips, their counterparts are unbeaten so far this season, and scored twice or more in every tie bar one (which was against current league-topper Mainz).
In addition, at the Allianz Arena, the team remained unbeaten in 20 of their former 21 appearances and won an impressive 18 of their prior 20 games as well. Also, the squad managed to score an astonishing 43 goals from their previous 11 home ties.
By all means, we can count on the Bavarians to dole out a huge win and get right back on track for the title race.
