Three rounds have been played already since the Bundesliga resumed and the teams seem to be as sharp as they were before the halt. The last match of the 29th round will be on Monday between 1. FC Köln and RB Leipzig. Depending on the results from other games, this match outcome can change the table standings for both teams.
1. FC Köln comes in this game with a low team spirit after a disappointing 3-1 away loss against Hoffenheim; with an early red card changing the fate of the game. But the team has shown great performance in the last 5 games, with more ball possession percentage and thus creating more dangerous attacks. But their effort was not enough as their last 5 match record is a disappointing 1W – 2D – 2 L. In total, they have won 10 times, drawn 4 times, and lost 14 times which puts them in the 11ª position with 34 points. The incapacity to convert the goal opportunities created (only 44 goals scored) affects the overall performance of the team, especially the defense line (52 goals suffered). In general, the team has the potential to get back to winning ways.
On the other hand, RB Leipzig hasn’t lost a game in their last 10 games, 5W – 5D, and scored 21 goals and suffered only 4 goals; with a superb defense line, managing to keep 7 clean sheets out of the 10 games. Leipzig is in the 4th position after 15 wins, 10 draws, and only 3 defeats, summing up 55 points. They have the 3rd best scoring attack line with a record of 70 goals. And their defensive line is only 2nd to Bayern’s, conceded 29 goals.
This will be a do-or-die match as the home team will try to collect points to get closer to the Europa League qualification spots. Whereas Leipzig can’t drop points at this stage, the glory of playing in the Champions League is already within their reach. Taking into consideration the incapacity of Köln to convert created goal chances and Leipzig’s lethal attack line and rock-solid defense line, my bet will be RB Leipzig -1 AH.
