FC Koln – RB Leipzig Match Preview
- Cologne will have to fight hard if they want to maintain their Bundesliga status ahead of next season, yet their survival prospects don’t look good based on recent form with no win in nine (D2, L7). Across that sequence, only Schalke netted fewer goals than Cologne’s seven and conceded more than their 20, and notably nine of their previous 12 ‘goals against’ arrived after HT.
- Although the ‘Billy Goats’ didn’t enjoy the best of campaigns last season, they did average a solid 1.29 points per home game. Yet that decent home form has abandoned them this term and they now have the worst home record in the league (W1, D5, L8). These fixtures don’t normally get away from them until after HT though, with nine of their 14 here seeing them winning/drawing at the break.
- The Bundesliga title looks like Bayern Munich’s again this season, but that won’t stop second-placed RB Leipzig from chasing them until the end, and it was only the leaders who beat them across their previous 11 league matches (W8, D2, L1). Even including that loss, they conceded over 1.5 goals just once in that run, showing why they have the lowest goals conceded average in the league (0.79 per game).
- Clean sheets have been key to that impressive defensive record and ‘Die Roten Bullen’ have secured one in four of their previous five away league matches (W5). There was also a shut out in this season’s reverse (0-0), although both teams did score in each of the previous three H2H encounters in Cologne.
- Players to watch: Returning from suspension, Cologne’s Ondrej Duda has scored three goals in the 15 minutes before HT across his previous four league appearances. Leipzig’s Dani Olmo not only scored in his last Bundesliga appearance, but he also netted in his last visit to Cologne.
- Hot stat: Leipzig have fallen behind fewer times than any other Bundesliga side (nine)
