FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Prediction, Tips & Match Preview

FC Koln vs RB Leipzig
German Bundesliga
Date: Tuesday, 20 April 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne).

RB Leipzig are dealt with a tremendous blow to the title chances after the goal-less with Hoffenheim on Saturday. Their direct rival Bayern have moved up 7 points to the top after a thumping win against third placed Wolfsburg.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men are most likely to finish 2nd in the table and Champions League football is a guarantee with 5 matches to go and their cushion in top 4 is a massive 14 point.

FC Koln are in at the opposite end of the table and they have everything to play for in the remaining five matchdays. They are second from bottom in the standings and they must earn points from all remaining matches.

Leipzig are coming with an excellent run of results, Bayern the only team to beat them since February; 8 wins and 2 draws in 11 games. Koln, on the other hand, are without a win in 9 matches, suffering defeats in 7 of them.

Leipzig have an excellent h2h record against Koln having won 4 of the 7 overall Bundesliga meetings so far, the remaining three is split across 2 draws and 1 loss.

Their meeting earlier this season was a goal-less draw at the Red Bull Arena.

RBL bagged 2 wins and 1 draw in their three visits to Koln so far. Both teams scored in all three games, over 2.5 goals in the latest two.

FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Prediction

It is hard to see any other result than a Leipzig win in this Bundesliga clash. The visitors have excellent form, and they are coming to RheinEnergieStadion as one of the best defensive units in the league. They rarely lower their guard against teams sitting at the bottom half of the table.

Even though, away win priced at 1.40 odd is the safest option, I like to take a shot at -1.5 handicap win for Nagelsmann’s men since they their goal aggregate in last 5 away games is 14:1.

You can also back the over 2.5 goals at full-time for 1.66 odd, 6 of Leipzig’s 7 away games produced 3 or more goals so do majority of their h2h games with this opposition.
