Date: Saturday, 10 November 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne).
The club from Cologne is on their first season in the second division after relegation from Bundesliga. At present they are 3rd in the table just 3 points behind the leaders Hamburger. From their 12 league games, they have 6 wins and 3 defeats.
The Billy Goats are the top scoring team in the league with 24 goals, i.e.; they score at least 2 goals per game. But they are no strong in defending conceding 17 goals in the process. Markus Anfang’s team are on an active 4 game winless streak in all competitions, which includes 2 defeats in the last 2 matches.
Home form is also not convincing for them as they have only 1 win in the last 5 matches in home soil, while they lost 3 in that period as well. In 4 of those 5 matches, the final score had over 2.5 goals in total.
Dresden, on the other hand, is on a 4 match unbeaten run in the league. It includes only 1 win and they tend to draw more matches. With 5 wins and 4 defeats, they are 7th in the table.
In their last 6 matches played in all competitions, they have 2 wins and a loss. Also, 3 of their last 5 matches had over 2.5 goals.
Dynamo is also on a 4 game unbeaten streak in away matches played in the league which has 2 wins in it.
Koln has to win this match to go on top of the table and to raise their team morale after their recent setbacks.

FC Koln vs Dynamo Dresden Prediction
Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 5 home matches of the Billy Goats, even though they have only 1 win in them. The same is followed by the visitors in 2 of their recent away matches as well. The hosts have scored the most goals this season and the visitors have found the net 16 times also. With the hosts having trouble in defense recently, there may be chances for the visitors to score. So we can bet on the score to be over 2.5 goals in total with 1.58 odd.
Koln needs a win in this match to go on top of the table and improve their poor home record in which they have only one win in 5 games. Their last defeat in the league was against the toppers, but it was a close match with only 1 goal in it. But the Dynamo are not much of a challenge and we can expect a win for the home side. So we can place a bet on Koln to win with 1.52 odd.
