FC Koln vs Wolfsburg Prediction

By the look of things, FC Koln have finally started to hit the ground running. They have secured maximum points from their past three games, the last of which was a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen at home.

It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have stumbled just once in their previous five fixtures in the Bundesliga, and have garnered ten points from a possible fifteen as well.

On the other hand, Wolfsburg will be making the trip to RheinEnergieStadion on the back of a two-match winless run. Their last clash on the road saw them lose 2-0 to Bayern prior to which they shared the spoils with Schalke at home in a 1-1 draw.

Furthermore, the guests have admitted defeat in five of their previous eight clashes in the top flight, and have had a taste of success just twice in the process.

To make matters worse for the traveling faithful, Wolfsburg have dropped points in four of their past five outings on the trot. In sharp contrast, the hosts are unbeaten in their last four games here.

Taking into account that the home team have also been recording back to back wins in their previous two meetings with this foe here, Wolfsburg have little or no chance of emerging victoriously in this one.

However, the visitors have shared the spoils in half of their past six trips to this stadium. Taking into account that they managed to secure the bragging rights in the reverse fixture as well, it will be a lot safer to back a double chance this weekend.

Additionally, the hosts have not been keen on racking up the goal-scoring charts at home this term. They have found the back of the net just nine times so far, which is the second least tally in the cluster.

Meanwhile, Wolfsberg’s frontline have been disappointing in their recent outings, and have failed to score in each of their past two. Considering that all of their previous three h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, expect goals to be scarce this weekend.
