Saarbrucken vs FC Koln Prediction
The host is currently playing in the Regionalliga Südwest, which is the fourth tier, while the visitor is battling it out in the topmost tier of football in the land. The Bundesliga contingents are stronger when compared to the inferior league contestants. As such, based on their experience and league standards the traveling side is the favorites to win the bout.
Besides that, the host does not uphold the home advantage as both teams will be playing home matches in different stadiums. So the option of home advantage is devoid of the hosting side in the clash with Billy Goats.
Apart from that, Die Molschder has been able to win against the guest on only one occasion in their h2h clashes. Significantly, their win came in a home match in 2004. The host has been defeated at home and away by the Billy Goats in their other two h2h encounters in 2004 and 2005. Since the teams have not met in a large gap, nothing can be said precisely from their h2h meetings.
However, with their current league standards and absence of home advantage, the visiting side has more chance of placing a win with at least a two-goal lead.
