Koln vs Dusseldorf Prediction and Betting Preview 24 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-2
Judging by their performance levels so far, FC Koln really do not seem a side that were plying their trade in the second-tier of the German league merely a year ago. They have quickly gotten their mitts about the weekly hassles of the Bundesliga and sit comfortably in eleventh on the standings.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 27
Kick-off:
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne)
Head coach Markus Gisdol has been receiving lots of plaudits for his side’s dazzling displays and impressive results this season. They have defied pre-season expectations of battling relegation and are even in the running for an Europa League place finish.

With only six points separating them from sixth-placed Wolfsburg, a place in Europe come the end of the season seems very realistic. However, they will be required to keep churning out positive results over the coming weeks to have any chances of breaking into the top-six mix.

Expect an entertaining and enthralling game in Cologne on Sunday evening when Fortuna Dusseldorf come around town to take on FC Koln at the RheinEnergie Stadion, the former hoping to stage an unlikely upset to steer away from the drop zone.

FC Koln vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Team News

FC Koln were held to a frustrating 2-2 home draw at the hands of 15th-placed Mainz on the last matchday, much to dismay of the club supporters. A fixture they were expected to win with ease, the hosts struggled to see off their troubled opposition. 

Truth be told, FC Koln could have easily stolen the win given they were heads and shoulders above Mainz for large parts of the game but had profligacy to blame for the disappointing result. Following this slip-up, the Billy Goats will be itching to set the record straight with a win over another relegation threatened side in Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Dusseldorf, on the other hand, played out a drab stalemate against basement club Paderborn last time out. A game devoid of any major goal-mouth action, both sides had to settle for a point at the sound of the final whistle.

Head coach Uwe Rosler was clearly furious as he kept pacing back and forth the touchline, barking orders at his players as they pushed for the winning goal. They ultimately had to settle for a goalless draw at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.

The Billy Goats had been on a roll with three consecutive wins in the bag but followed up with two draws in their previous two fixtures. They are a whopping ten points better off 16th-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Though considered inexperienced in the top-flight, given they just gained promotion from the second division, they are currently overperforming. They have been pretty consistent as well and are on a five-game unbeaten run in the league.

It is also worth noting that the visiting contingent have remained unbeaten in their previous five fixtures across all competitions – four of them ending in draws. Their draw against basement club Paderborn last week marked their fourth on the bounce. These set of players definitely know to grind out a draw.

Koln vs Dusseldorf Predictions

FC Koln will be looking to use home advantage to maximum effect when struggling Dusseldorf come around town on Sunday evening. With a decent record of six wins and two draws from their last 13 fixtures on this ground, they are easy favorites for the win here.

Given that the visitors have secured draws in their last four games in the league, betting against them might not be the safest punt. Count on both sides to breach the other side, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes.
