Arminia Bielefeld vs Koln
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Schüco Arena.
The Blues have just been promoted to the top flight, and expectedly are pretty overwhelmed by the prospect of taking on some of the best teams in the world. Their top priority for this season would be to not get relegated back to where they came from.
Meanwhile, the Billy Goats have been prospering in the Bundesliga for some time, and now seem ready to aim a spot in the top-half. This match-up against a newly-promoted squad is a great opportunity for them to post three easy points on the board.
They do have a terrific h2h record against this foe lately, and on top of that, they also have been in great form in the past several weeks.
Meanwhile, their counterparts for the day are still searching for their first win of the season.
Likely, expect a great game by Koln this Saturday.
Arminia Bielefeld vs Koln: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Markus Gisdol’s men are on a five-match winning run against this opponent.
- They have scored a total of eleven goals from the former three clashes alone.
- The guests have a 100% winning record at this stadium in the past decade.
- The visitors have also scored three or more goals in all of their games at this ground since 2013.
- It’s been 12 years since Uwe Neuhaus’s men have won a match-up.
Arminia Bielefeld vs Koln: Prediction
The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Frankfurt. Meanwhile, the Billy Goats were defeated 2-3 at home the past game week, by Hoffenheim.
Neuhaus’s men were winless in five of their previous six overall games, and are yet to record an official win this season. They are also one of the least experienced squads in the top flight at the moment – as they were promoted from the 2.Bundesliga just at the end of the last season.
Going on, they are on a five-fixture losing run against this rival, and most importantly have not won a single fixture against them since 2008.
In addition, Gisdol’s men had won their latest fixture away from home with a 0-6 scorecard, and are also on a two-match winning run away from home.
Finally, for the Goats, who have set sights on a top-half finish this campaign, matches against the minnows are important. They cannot afford to take this game lightly.
As such, expect a strong performance from Koln this Saturday.
