FC Koln vs Bayern Munich Prediction and Betting Preview 16 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-4
FC Koln vs Bayern Munich PredictionA clash between the most accomplished team in Germany football history and a struggling FC Koln side awaits us at the RheinEnergieStadion on Sunday afternoon when the Bavarians make the trip to Cologne to take on the Billy Goats.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 22
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne)
On unfamiliar territory, the visiting contingent will be looking to secure maximum points to steer further away from the likes of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig – both of whom are giving the defending champions a run for their money.

Following a drab draw against fellow title challengers RB Leipzig last time out, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men will be looking to return to winning ways this weekend. With a game against 13th-placed FC Koln, the Bavarians are overwhelming favorites to come away with the win.

However, it goes without saying that the hosts are no pushovers, thanks to their impressive home record. Also, they have caused major upsets against some of Bundesliga’s top guns at the RheinEnergieStadion this term.

Bundesliga games do not present themselves any more thrilling and exciting than this. I say we sit back, relax and enjoy two really good footballing sides entertain us in Cologne on Saturday.

FC Koln vs Bayern Munich Team News

The Billy Goats had a week off as their Bundesliga clash against old rivals Borussia Monchengladbach was postponed due to dangers posed by storm Sabine. Despite that, their position is mostly unchanged, 13th place on the table and rapid return on winning track, as they dismantled declining Freiburg 4-0 just before the break.

Following a disastrous start to the season and just one win in six league games at the RheinEnergieStadion, Markus Gisdol woke his men up from their slumber. 

Cologne subsequently went on a winning run that lasts to this day; four victories in front of their own fans, including huge scalp against Bayer Leverkusen, the one that started this streak.

FC Bayern were held to a goalless draw by RB Leipzig last time out. tTe Bavarians were dominant in the first half whereas the visitors had the better chances after the interval, but ultimately neither side could break the deadlock.

Hans Flick’s men may have been held up from advancing on the battlefield but the keys to winning the war are still in their hands as the Bundesliga despots remained on the top, with one point dividing them from closest challengers in Leipzig’s Red Bulls.

On the road, under Kovac, champions of Germany stuttered, dropped points where they shouldn’t have but things have apparently returned to normal as the club have registered three consecutive away victories, now demolishing opponents even outside of Allianz Arena, just like in the good, old days.

Injured or Suspended Players

FC Koln: Thomas Kessler, Elvis Rexhbeca and Jan Thielmann.

Bayern Munich: Niklas Sule, Javi Martinez, Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies.

FC Koln vs Bayern Munich Predictions

Despite the impressive form of Köln coming into this game, it is Bayern Munich who are considered the favourites to win on the road. The away side have a supremely dominant record against their opponents and have won nine of the last ten fixtures between the two teams. Die Geißböcke have failed to prevent the Bavarians from scoring against them, having conceded four goals in three of the last five games played at the Allianz Arena.

Hans-Dieter Flick's side should comfortably add three points to their league tally in order to retain their lead at the top of the Bundesliga, in order to keep ahead of the chasing pack in Borussia Dortmund, Leipzig and Borussia Mönchengladbach.
