Werder Bremen vs FC Koln
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 27 June 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
The River Islanders are currently placed 17th in the table, and they need a win at any cost to avoid relegation in this final match-day. They simply have no other go, and by all means we can expect the team to line up as if it was the World Cup Final.
Meanwhile, the Billy Goats, despite being a newcomer to this competition, and having struggled all through the season, have managed to make it safe. On that account, we can expect them to be pretty low in intensity, especially in comparison to their counterparts.
Moreover, the River Islanders have a great h2h record at this stadium against this opponent as well. Considering these factors, it could be inferred that Werder Bremen are on course to post a win in this do-or-die match.
