Freiburg vs Koln
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
The Breisgau Brazilians just might be the best team in the competition on basis of recent form.
They remain the only team in the whole league to have posted 12 points on the board from the past four match-days – which even the likes of Bayern, Leipzig, and Dortmund failed to do.
They also need a surplus of just four points to get into one of the European spots.
This upcoming weekend, six of the total eight teams above Christian Streich’s men in the table have tough fixtures, and this is a great opportunity for them to improve their standings.
Meanwhile, the Billy Goats are one of the worst teams in the league, and are placed 15th in the table.
Only two relegation-battlers have scored fewer goals than them, and they have recorded a total of just two wins this whole season. One of those had come against the 17th placed Mainz.
On top of all that, the Brazilians also have a good h2h record against this opponent at this venue. For the reasons, expect Freiburg to have the edge this Saturday.
Freiburg vs Koln: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Streich’s men recorded 12 of the preceding 17 overall wins.
- They have scored two or more goals in three of the former five fixtures.
- At this venue, the hosts had won six of the last seven appearances.
- Since 1996, only once have the visitors won at this venue.

Freiburg vs Koln Prediction
The Brazilians recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Hoffenheim. In the meantime, Markus Gisdol’s men lost 0-1 at home against Augsburg.
Going on, Streich’s men won four of their past five overall match-ups, and they remained so in six of their preceding seven games. At home, they are on a two-fixture winning run, and they had also scored a total of eight goals from the past three appearances here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 13 of their past 16 overall match-ups, and they had won just four times on the road since March of 2020. One of these wins had come in a friendly, and another one in the DFB Pokal.
In addition, the Brazilians also have a terrific h2h record against this rival over the past two decades at this ground.
Considering these factors, expect Freiburg to post a convincing win this Saturday.
