Bayern Munich will host Koln at the Allianz Arena with the only thought of winning
After losing two points during the visit to RB Leipzig in the previous round, the champion Bayern Munich will host Koln at the Allianz Arena with the only thought of winning. Here are our thoughts about this fixture in the Bavarian capital in our football prediction tips.
Right now Bayern Munich are at fourth place in the Bundesliga standings, but only two points behind the leader RB Leipzig. A week ago Niko Kovac’ team faced the leader at the Red Bull Arena, but won only a point after a 1-1 draw. The Polish striker Robert Lewandowski opened the score after just three minutes of playing, but the Swedish international Emil Forsberg equalised from a penalty kick.
Of course, nobody at Bayern Munich felt this draw as a tragedy. During the week the Bavarians hosted Crvena Zvezda in their first Champions League game for the season and offered their fans a pure spectacle, winning the match with 3-0. Lewandowski scored again, while Kingsley Coman and Thomas Muller added two more goals against the Serbians. Bayern look in a good shape at the moment.
For Koln most likely this season is going to be a fight for survival once again. Right now the Billy Goats are 15th in the standings with just 3 points won so far. They have a record of one win and three losses in the league so far.
Last week Koln hosted Borussia M’gladbach at their own RheinEnergieStadion, but suffered a 0-1 loss. Alassane Plea opened the score for Borussia, while the hosts were unable to answer this challenge.
In our football prediction tips we are pretty sure that Bayern Munich will redeem themselves for the two points lost against RB Leipzig. Koln are a team which could hardly trouble the Bavarians at the Allianz Arena. But maybe they can cause an upset?
