      Hamburger vs Cologne Predictions

      Hamburger’s confidence will be at an all time low at the moment. The struggling Bundesliga side had lost two and drawn one of their three matches before the winter break, and they scheduled a few friendlies to try and get back to winning ways.

      Unfortunately for them, they lost all three of those home friendlies too. They have followed this up with back to back Bundesliga defeats after the winter break, taking their competitive record to five games without a win and four defeats.

      Hamburger have enjoyed some periods of good form this season though, which means their position in the Bundesliga isn’t terrible. They sit in 11th position with 22 points from their first 19 matches. A win on Sunday would see them leapfrog Cologne and move as high as 9th, whilst a defeat could see them drop as low as 15th in the table.

      Cologne themselves occupy 9th position, with a win for them giving them the potential to move into 7th and a loss meaning they could end the weekend in 11th.

      Cologne aren’t a very easy team to beat at the moment, but their problem lies in picking up the maximum points from their matches. They have only lost two of their last nine matches in the Bundesliga, but they have also only managed to pick up two wins.

      This makes them one of the draw specialists in Germany, with only Hoffenheim drawing more matches than them this season.

      But Cologne have won their last three matches against Hamburger. They haven’t lost to the struggling side since a DFB Pokal meeting in 2013.

      I think this could be the match that Cologne manage to get back to winning ways. Hamburger are just looking devoid of all confidence at the moment and the visitors have the psychological advantage of a good record against them.

      They are the draw specialists though, so I think it’s better to go for a Cologne 0.0 Asian Handicap Win at excellent value odds of 2.150 along with a 2-1 Cologne Win at 10/1.
