Cologne vs Bayern Munich Match Preview
Bayern Munich’s eight-match winning run was ended last week, but their home draw with RB Leipzig caused them no damage and they can return to winning ways at Cologne.
Although the Bundesliga champions were long odds-on to beat their fellow title hopefuls Leipzig, the 0-0 stalemate meant they remained at the top of the table as Dortmund lost to Bayer Leverkusen while Borussia Monchengladbach’s game against Cologne was postponed due to Storm Ciara.
It’s still tight between the leading quartet and Leverkusen are also coming up on the rails, but you sense Bayern are just about in control as they aim to make it eight German league championships in a row.
But it may not be easy for them at Cologne, who have improved massively since mid-December which was around a month after former Hoffenheim and Hamburg boss Markus Gisdol was appointed as their manager.
Cologne have won five of their last six matches to pull clear of the relegation battle and apart from the exception in that current sequence when they lost 5-1 away to Dortmund, they have tightened up considerably in defence.
The Billy Goats will also be encouraged that Bayern drew a blank last time out, but the attacking quality possessed by FC Hollywood is expected to break down their hosts at least once and ensure they gain a victory that keeps them at the Bundesliga summit.
