FC Cologne vs RB Leipzig

Another frustrating weekend for the visitors saw them draw for the tenth times in the Bundesliga. Leipzig now sit in 5th position, and despite only three defeats all season, are 12 points away from leaders Bayern. They have now drawn four of their last five league games. The Red Bulls take on a Cologne side who saw a complete upturn in form during the season. Eight wins in 10 games between December and February lifted the Billy Goats away from relegation threat. However, they have not won yet since the return of the Bundesliga. I think it will stay that way against Leipzig, but double chance on a draw for these two could be appealing.”

Another positive home result for Cologne?

The rise in form for the cult footballing side means a mid-table finish looks more and more likely. Seven points separate Cologne and relegation play-off side Dusseldorf in 16th. Since October, Cologne have only lost twice at home in the league. They have defeated the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg at the RhineEnergieStadion so far in the Bundesliga.

The stats look reasonable for the hosts heading into this one. They have a much better home PPG than away, with 1.50 home PPG in the Bundesliga. There is a very high concentration of goals scored or conceded in the last stages of matches. In fact, the hosts have scored 13 of their 44 Bundesliga goals this season between the 81st-90th minute of matches (30%).

Leipzig draw form costly

Another hitch in starting to gather momentum for Julian Nagelsmann’s side as Hertha Berlin held Leipzig to another draw. Despite that, the visitors extended their unbeaten run to nine games and have an excellent away record going into this one. No team has more clean sheets away from home than Leipzig with seven so far in the Bundesliga.

The stats look promising for the hosts heading into this one. All of Timo Werner’s last five competitive goals for Leipzig have come away from home. Of the 13 times they have scored first this season, Leipzig have only dropped two points from a possible 39 points. Leipzig average 3.53 total goals in away games this season, only betted by four clubs.
