FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Prediction

The Billy Goats were defeated 3-1 on the road the last match-day, by Hoffenheim. It was an eventful 90 minutes, with two red cards, one missed penalty, one disallowed goal, and four goals. All through the match-up, the hosts dominated proceedings, and allowed not an inch-space for the Goats to even muster the courage to attempt a comeback.

Meanwhile, the Red Bulls were held to a 2-2 draw at home the past game week, by Hertha. The hosts did have a chance to post the win, as they were leading 2-1 even when there were just ten minutes left on the game-clock. However, Hertha managed to slot in the equalizer towards the end of the match, to walk away with a draw.

As things stand, the Bulls are easily the favorites. They have been an important team in the league for a very long time, and are perennial contenders for the Champions League spots. They are at present placed in the third position, and have a great chance at qualifying for Europe’s premier competition.

On the other hand, the Goats were not even present in this league the past season, as they were paying their dues in the 2.Bundesliga. As such, they do lack in experience and exposure. On top of that, the Bulls have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes at this stadium, and they have never once kept a clean sheet against them.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s clear that RB Leipzig are about to deliver a convincing win this Monday.
