Magdeburg vs FC Koln Predictions & Match Preview

Magdeburg vs FC Koln
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: MDCC-Arena (Magdeburg).

The contrast between the two teams cannot be more apparent. Cologne is officially the champions of this competition and has gained promotion to the top division, while Magdeburg is at the other end of the table, and will take part in the 3.Liga the next season.

With this being the final match-day, there’s no question who has the mental edge. Cologne will surely be in a celebratory mood and will want to close out their incredible season with a win, while a sense of doom will be taking control of fans as well as players of Magdeburg.

At least a long hard year of toil and struggle awaits them in the lower division before they could even dream of returning back to this competition.

Magdeburg vs FC Koln Prediction

Cologne has been the best team in the competition this season, while Magdeburg was one of the worst. Both have secured their future – Cologne to the Bundesliga, and their counterparts to the third division of German Football.

Cologne had recorded a 3-0 win in the reverse fixture of this tie. Also, Magdeburg lost four of their last five matches and was winless in five of their last six at home. Going on, with their relegation already secured, the team would not be mentally equipped to give a strong performance and that too against the topper.

On the other hand, Cologne will want to put an icing on the cake, that was their league crown and promotion, with a huge win in this final match-day. Count on them to deliver that at any cost.
