RasenBallsport still have time to fight for the top of the table, however, lost points in the last few games complicate the situation. For Koln, this season looks very average, as they stand right in the middle of the table. After coming back to Bundesliga Koln have a great possibility to stay for one more season and strengthen the squad during summer transfer window. Read our thoughts about this interesting FC Koln vs RB Leipzig Bundesliga match here below and follow other sports predictions on Smashingtip!
During the last 20 years, FC Koln is a transitional squad between Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2. They are strong squad for such a league like Bundesliga 2, but too weak for main German league. A few seasons ago under Peter Stöger, they took the 1st place in Bundesliga 2 and progressively finished at 12, then 9 and finally 5th places during three seasons in Bundesliga. After 168 matches driving FC Koln, Peter Stöger failed to succeed in Borussia Dortmund, what strongly affects his career and Cologne’s further progress.
At the moment, the Billy Goats stands at 11th place with 34 points right in the middle of the standings. They play very dangerously in the attack but have troubles in the defensive area as they 4th team with the biggest amount of conceded goals. During this season they already showed sensational results against teams like Bayer Leverkusen, Schalke or Eintracht Frankfurt. In the middle of the season, they sacked Achim Beierlorzer and appointed Achim Beierlorzer as a new head coach what showed really visible changes.
FC Koln is a very dangerous, fast and skilful squad which doest plays especially well against strong clubs. Teams like RB Leipzig that love open football can face a very tough confrontation, which we are expecting from Koln. During the last 10 home matches, Koln won 5 and lost only two games against Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim.
One of the youngest and talented clubs in the World should prepare well for this away match against Goats. Red Bulls already lost points in 4 out of the last 5 matches, however, stood unbeatable. They played 4 draws against a really weak squad like Freiburg or Hertha Berlin, so on Monday, they should make everything to take 3 important points. At the moment, Leipzig stands at 4th place and have only 2 points less than Borussia Dortmund, so the second place in very close. Unfortunately, after Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia and Leipzig lost points during the few last round, Bayern Munich already made a quite big gap between 1st place followers.
RasenBallsport Leipzig surprisingly failed to win the last match over the Hertha. Even playing away Hertha Berlin were very dangerous and even led the match, but red card of Halstenberg and lots of mistakes in defence gave an opportunity to score from a penalty, where Piatek made everything without any mistakes.
Against FC Koln Leipzig will play without suspended in the last game Halstenberg and injured Poulsen, Konate and Hartmann. Also still under question about AMpadu and Kampl participation.
