Koln vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Tuesday, 4th April 2017
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne).
Koln and Frankfurt are two team that did exceptionally well in the first half of the season. Both were poised for an unlikely bid to challenge the Champions League spots. But a poor run of results over the last two months had dent their chances. However, European football is still a possibility if they can pick up their game from now on.
Both teams are locked on 37 points with Koln sitting at the edge of Europa League zone, while Frankfurt are outside the zone at 7th.
Frankfurt are without a win in their last 7 league games. They were on a 5 match losing streak before managing back-to-back goal-less draws in the latest two.
Koln seemed to have got back on track when they defeated Hertha 4-2 just before the international break. But the fell to a 2-1 loss away at Hamburg on Saturday and remain with 1 win in the last 7, with 2 draws and 4 losses.
At home, Koln’s lone defeat in the current campaign came against Bayern Munich. Overall, they won 6 and drew 5 from 12 matches. On the other hand, Frankfurt lost in 5 of the last 6 away games, managing a narrow win against Schalke at the end of January.
Koln vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
The home team were victorious in the last five meeting between the two sides. There were only 2 occasions when an away team had won during the last 20 meetings between them in all competitions. Home wins occurred on 12 occasions, while 6 matches saw draws.
Koln vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Koln are slightly better of the two if you look at their recent run of form. Moreover, they have an excellent home record in the current campaign and are unbeaten in the last 11 home games against Frankfurt. The latest three here were comprehensively won by Koln and I don’t see a reason why they drop points against a poor Frankfurt.
