Koln vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction 2 February 2018

Match date: 

On February 2 2018 at 19:30 in the forthcoming 21st match of the German Bundesliga at the RheinEnergieStadion the local Koln are playing against their guests Borussia from Dortmund.

Koln actually have a comparatively strong squad as they managed to get a few new players during the winter transfer window. A few players also managed to get back to the squad during the break. They came back stronger than they used to be.

Koln have been known to be strong middle-peasants of the Bundesliga and they finished the previous season on comparatively high fifth position. The players are obviously strong individually and yet the beginning of the season wasn’t very good at all. It seems to us that the main reason for this is that they had to play in the Europa League. They weren’t used to playing twice a week and that’s they started to lose points in the end.

Now Europa League is over for Koln and they can work on the national championship. They also had their manager replaced and it also helped them improve the situation. They lost to Freiburg with 3 goals scored and four goals conceded and lost to Bayern with just one goal conceded. After that Koln outplayed Wolfsburg, Hertha, Borussia M, and Hamburger and shred the points with Augsburg as they drew 1:1.

As for Borussia, they had their manager replaced twice this season. They have a lot of players injured as they have 8 players not able to play now. Borussia have only won two games of the latest 15 ones played. After the winter break they played against comparatively easy competitors such as Freiburg, Hertha and Wolfsburg and they drew three times in those matches 0:0, 1:1 and 2:2. They lost their pace with all of these problems and injuries and they are no longer in the Champions League zone.

Borussia didn’t win in their latest four away matches against Koln at their domestic stadium as they drew once and lost three times. And we must admit that hose days both teams were much stronger. So, we think that this time Borussia won’t win with more than two goals difference.
