FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Prediction and Betting Preview, 01 Jun 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-4
RB Leipzig have been one of the better sides in the German Bundesliga this season, securing positive results even at some of the most dreaded stadiums in the country. Timo Werner has been the cream of the crop for the club, leading his side to a top-four charge this campaign.
Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 29
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne)
Following a very strong start to the season, even topping the table at a time, the Red Bulls seemed hell-bent on enjoying a successful season. In fact, they must have once harbored hopes of lifting the Bundesliga trophy come the end of the season, with their grit and resilience on show.

As things stand, the Red Bulls are well-placed for a Champions League place finish and will be required to turn consistency into a norm to ensure a top-four finish at the end of the campaign. Needless to say, Julian Nagelsmann deserves a pat on the back for the amazing work he has put in at the club.

Meanwhile, FC Koln have been pretty hit-and-miss since the league restart and have struggled with consistency ever since. Involved within mid-table obscurity, the Billy Goats have to improve performance levels to avoid dropping further down the standings.

Expect an enthralling and exciting game at the Mungersdorfer Stadion when FC Koln entertain RB Leipzig in a crunch Bundesliga clash, both sides tussling for bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points.

FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Team News

Newly-promoted side FC Koln have been enjoying a return to top-flight football with some scintillating piece of football on display so far this season. Also, they are comfortably placed in 11th spot on the standings having amassed an impressive 34 points from 28 games.

Handed a really difficult away fixture against Europa League faithful Hoffenheim on the last match-day, FC Koln were required to put nothing but their best foot forward to have any chances of salvaging a positive result. As expected, they were comfortably beaten and headed home empty-handed.

Despite the 1-3 loss, the club supporters will have no complaints about the manner in which the game panned out considering the stature of the opposition in question. The Billy Goats will now set their sights on an unlikely return to winning ways with a win against Leipzig this Sunday.

RB Leipzig, on the other hand, were unable to overpower a relatively weak Hertha Berlin side, even at the Red Bull Arena, leaving Julian Nagelsmann frustrated down the touchline. An intense game from start to finish, both sides had to settle for a 2-2 draw in the end.

The Red Bulls pressed really high the pitch as the clock wound down, searching for the winning goal but fell short of pre-match expectations of a comfortable victory. The draw has left them within two points of dropping off the top-four mix.

For this fixture, RB Leipzig have to be considered favorites for the win. They have been on a roll all season and were once in the running for the league title. With the presence of Germany international Timo Werner within their ranks, they have easily swept sides under the carpet.

Also, the hosts hold a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes against this foe on this ground but have never ever kept a clean sheet in that time.

FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Predictions

Taking all these into consideration, everything points in the direction of a Leipzig win at the end of the campaign. However, given that Julian Nagelsmann’s boys have been pretty inconsistent in recent weeks, vouching for an outright away win could back to haunt you. As such, the safest punt here would be backing “both sides to score” before the end of the ninety minutes.
