Dortmund vs FC Koln PredictionDortmund vs FC Koln Prediction and Preview for Friday's Bundesliga fixture. With the German Bundesliga title still very much up for grabs, Borussia Dortmund will be determined to secure victory against FC Koln, when the latter visits Signal Iduna Park for a crunch clash on Friday evening.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 19
Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund)

Despite a rocky start to the campaign, Die Borussen are still very much in it, when it comes to the small matter of the Bundesliga title race. Sitting fourth on the standings having garnered 33 points from 18 games, Lucien Favier’s side are just seven points adrift the summit of the table.

The Bundesliga season has panned out in a rather weird and unexpected way, with more than half of the campaign already gone. Serial league champions shockingly find themselves sitting second on the table, four points adrift RB Leipzig.

FC Koln will be heading into this fixture with every intention of clinching maximum points against an inconsistent Dortmund side, to stretch their winning streak to five games on the trot.

Borussia Dortmund vs FC Koln Team News

Last time out in the German Bundesliga, Dortmund were handed the task of edging out tough customers Augsburg in a frantic encounter at the Augsburg Arena. It was a real puff out your cheeks moment at Augsburg over the weekend.

Trailing for large parts on the game, new signing Erling Haaland turned savior for Die Borussen, coming off the bench to register a magnificent hattrick. A handful of goals for the Norwegian, the youngster was able to complete a comeback for his side to post a 5-3 scorecard.

These are the kind of games we, football fans, look forward to with a total of eight goals plunged in at both sides of the goal. It is worth noting that Haaland completed his hattrick just 23 minutes after being subbed on.

The BVB don’t seem interested in giving up hope in their bid to spring up a late unexpected title challenge. Just seven points shy of the summit, Favier’s side are still very much in it. Rule out Borussia Dortmund at your own peril!

FC Koln, on the other hand, continued their blistering run of form on the last match-day after recording an impressive 3-1 victory over Wolfsburg.

Tipped by the bookmakers to lose heavily, the Billy Goats produced a dogged performance in front of the home support to cause a major upset against the Wolves. Jhon Cordoba was the cream of the crop for the home side, firing two goals to clinch the victory.

For this fixture, the Signal Iduna Park factor is very likely to come into play. The home side have not admitted defeat in front of the Great Yellow Wall this season. With 26 goals plunged in on this ground, they are easily the second-best home team in Germany, behind only RB Leipzig.

Alexander Wehrle’s side have definitely not perfected the art of crafting three points when playing on the road. With just two wins and a draw from their previous nine away games, the Billy Goat’s frailties away from home are bare for everyone to see. 

Injured or Suspended Players:

Dortmund: Dan-Axel Zagadou, Thomas Delaney, Marcel Schmelzer.

FC Koln: Christian Clemens.

Pre-Match Odds:

Dortmund vs FC Koln Predictions

Given that the away side have struggled to grind out positive results away from the RheinEnergieStadion, it might be a tough ask for FC Koln to salvage something meaningful from this game.

The away side will have their work cut-out in their bid to cause an upset against this imperious Dortmund side at the Signal Iduna Park. Their four-game winning run will definitely hand them some much-needed confidence heading into this fixture.

Count on Lucien Favre’s men to clinch the maximum points, at the end of the game, to continue their unlikely push for the Bundesliga title.
