Koln vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Match Preview

FC Koln vs Bayern Munich
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 31 October 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion.

The Bavarians are the reigning champions of the competition, and they are also widely considered as the absolute best team in the whole world – courtesy, their recently-completed continental treble.

By all means they are going after a repeat of that performance, and so far they have shown indications of bettering their 2019-20 campaign.

However, they do have the challenges posed by Dortmund and Leipzig to be taken care of, before they can start thinking about the German top flight crown.

This weekend, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men should record an easy win, as they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the Bundesliga.

Not only are the Billy Goats a new and inexperienced team in this tournament (as they were promoted just at the end of 2018-19 season), but they are also yet to record a win so far this campaign.

Moreover, like any other team in Germany, they too have an embarrassing h2h record against the Bavarians.

Likely, expect Bayern Munich to register a convincing win this weekend.

Koln vs Bayern Munich: Prediction

Markus Gisdol’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Stuttgart. In the meantime, the defending champions had recorded a 5-0 win at home against Frankfurt.

Going on, the Bavarians are also on a seven-game winning run, and they had also won 37 of their preceding 40 fixtures. Going on, keep note that they had scored a total of 52 goals from their past 13 match-ups combined.

On the other hand, the Billy Goats are on a five-game winless run, and at home, their latest win had come back in February.

Moreover, Flick’s men are also on a five-fixture winning run in h2h clashes, and at this stadium, they had posted wins in 14 of the former 16 encounters.

Finally, after five match-days in the German top flight, the title-holders have scored nine goals more than any other team in the whole tournament.

By all means, count on Bayern Munich to post a huge win this Saturday.
