      Darmstadt vs Cologne Predictions

      Darmstadt began their long awaited return to the Bundesliga in pretty good form. They only lost two of their opening six league matches, winning impressively against Werder Bremen, Bayer Leverkusen, and Augsburg.

      But their form has taken a bit of a battering since the end of October, and as they come into this match they have lost three of their last five games.

      Their only win in this period came in a 2-1 win over Hannover, with their home match against Hamburg ending all square.

      This poor form has seen them slip down the table a bit further than they would have liked though. They are currently in 13th position with 14 points from their opening 13 Bundesliga matches, four points clear of Stuttgart in the relegation playoff position.

      Cologne are slap bang in the middle of the table, with their 19 point haul putting them in 9th position. A win for them on Friday would see them move up to 6th ahead of the rest of the weekend’s Bundesliga action.

      After a patchy start to the season Cologne went on a pretty dismal run of results in October, losing three matches on the trot against Hannover, Bayern Munich, and Werder Bremen.

      But they have started to break out of that period, and are currently unbeaten in three matches, with a win against Bayer Leverkusen being sandwhiched between goalless draws against Hoffenheim and Mainz.

      These two sides haven’t met since 1982, and back then Cologne were the dominant force as they won three of their last four meetings. You can’t put too much weight on that, but I’m expecting them to be fairly dominant on Friday.

      Darmstadt have only won two of their eight home games this season, whilst Cologne have managed four wins from eight on the road. Their losses came against the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayern Munich, Hertha Berlin, and Werder Bremen as well. This makes odds of 1.825 for a Cologne 0 Asian Handicap Win look excellent value.
