Bayern Munich vs Koln
Germany Bundesliga,
Date: Sunday, 22 August 2021
Kick-off 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich got the new Bundesliga season underway with the away clash against Monchengladbach last Friday. The champions are now set to drop the curtain on Matchday No 2 on Sunday afternoon when Koln come to visit Allianz Arena.

The reigning Bundesliga champions slipped up right at the beginning of the 2021/22 campaign, playing out a 1-1 draw to Monchengladbach last Friday at the BORUSSIA-PARK.

They did boost up the confidence with a 3-1 victory over bitter rivals Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker in the German Super Cup on Tuesday evening.

Polish record-breaking forward is showing a stellar spell of form at the start of the season as he has bagged three of his team’s four goals in the inaugural two outings (both played within the last nine days).

He will clearly be the main target up front here against Koln who do not seem to have weapons capable of keeping hold of him right now.

Nonetheless, the visitors did get off to a bright start to their new Bundesliga campaign.

The Billy Goats pulled off a comeback against Hertha BSC scoring three goals in quick succession on the opening day.

Anthony Modeste, who returned to the team after unsuccessful episodes abroad, found the equalizer, while midfielder Florian Kainz enjoyed the best performance of his career by completing a second-half brace.

Bayern Munich vs Koln Head-to-head

Bayern Munich will be looking for the landmark 50th victory over Koln ahead of their 96th meeting with the Billy Goats.

Interestingly, the two outfits locked horns just more than a month ago in an exhibition. Koln clinched a 3-2 victory against star-less Bayern Munich on the occasion.

Bayern Munich won each of the last seven competitive games against Koln, though.

The Bavarians bagged seven goals in the last two league victories over the Billy Goats.

Both teams scored in five of the last six H2H outings.

Bayern Munich vs Koln Prediction

Bayern Munich to Win & Both Teams To Score has to be the way to go based on everything written above. The Bavarians are clearly massive favorites, but they did concede against Koln in five of the last six H2H games.

Moving forward, Bayern’s new center-back pair, Nicklas Sule and Dayot Upamecano, still needs some time to get used to each other. Koln, on the other side, bagged three goals past Hertha last weekend and we can easily see them on the scoresheet here.
