Leipzig to increase pressure on Cologne
Cologne welcome RB Leipzig to RheinEnergieStadion on Tuesday with both sides desperate for a win but for very different reasons.
Cologne find themselves in real relegation trouble with the side currently four points adrift from safety. With just five games remaining time seems to be running out for the home side and they’ll need to pick up points quickly. They’ve not won in nine games however and relegation is looking more of a certainty.
RB Leipzig have lost a little ground on league leaders, Bayern Munich, and now sit seven points behind the champions elect with just five games remaining. Champions League qualification is assure for next season but Leipzig will be keen to pick up the victory with a title win still a possibility for the side.
Cologne have conceded an average of 1.82 goals per game this season with Leipzig scoring at a very similar rate with 1.79 goals per game for the Leipzig attack. Cologne have only beaten Leipzig once in the last six fixtures between these two sides and everything points to this trend continuing.
We’re backing Leipzig to pick up all three points here, and with Cologne failing to score in two of their last three games, we’re predicting Leipzig win to nil. We’re forecasting a 2-0 victory for the away side in this contest.
