Koln vs RB Leipzing
2017/18 German Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 1st October 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne).
The “red lantern” of Bundesliga will try to get back on the right track after their extremely poor start of the season against RB Leipzig, the 6th place holders.
The Billy Goats showed signs of revival in the draw obtained at Hannover. They are playing in front of their fans and another negative result will heavily disappoint them considering that the team finished the last season on 5th place.
Koln comes after a defeat against Crvena Zvezda in EL and really needs a morale boosting performance.
The Red Bulls will fight to remain in the top 6 of the league. They will not have a good level of confidence considering the fact that they come after a 2-0 defeat at Besiktas in Europa League.
Besides this, they struggled to win against Frankfurt in the last Bundesliga match and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 5 matches.
Koln vs RB Leipzig: Head to Head
This two teams have met only twice and both of the meetings took place in the last season of Bundesliga. Leipzig managed to win 3-1 on their stadium while Koln had to satisfy with a draw on RheinEnergieStadion.
Koln vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
The team from Leipzig is clearly in a better form as Koln managed to score only 1 goal and conceded 13 in the first 6 rounds. However, The Billy Goats finished on the 5th place in the last season for a reason and their current standing is not reflecting their real value, so despite all the odds, I think that Koln will manage to avoid the defeat against The Bulls.
