Koln vs Union Berlin Prediction 13 August 2018

Tournament: 2. Bundesliga
Location: RheinEnergieStadion
Match date: 13.08.2018 at 19:30

On august 13 2018 at 19:30 at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne in the upcoming second match of the Second German Bundesliga the local Koln will play against Union Berlin.

The Goats failed in the previous season of the German Bundesliga and took the last place in the standings which led to their relegation. It was really surprising, considering the fact that in the previous 2016/17 season they took the fifth position and even participated in the Europa League. In fact, it could have been one of the factors which influenced the horrible results of the team in the national championship. They weren’t probably ready to participate in a few tournaments at the same time. In the previous season Koln weren’t very poor in their domestic games. Of course, they lost to the teams like Bayern, Leipzig, Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund and yet the class of those teams can’t be compared to the level of the Second Bundesliga. In the rest of the games they played rather well.

As for Union Berlin, they are known to be the middle-peasants of the championship and took the 8th position in the previous season. During the preseason camping Union Berlin played 6 friendlies where they won twice, drew twice and lost twice including the last game against QPR 0:3. In the previous first game of the season in the Second Bundesliga they outplayed one of the outsiders of the previous season Erzgebirge Aue 1:0. As for the away matches, Union Berlin took the 10th place in the league according to them as they gained 19 points in 17 games where they won 5 times, drew 4 times and lost 8 times. They also lost in three of the last five away matches.

The teams have already met each other six times and Koln won in five of these games while in the last game Union won. The Goats played three home matches against their competitors in the upcoming match and they won all of those games with convincing scores like 4:0, 2:0 and 7:0. The goal difference in those matches is 19:3 for Koln. Koln are known to have a very reach history and they just are to win in the match like that playing at home against the middle-peasants of the league. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the hosts are much more likely to win.
