Tip Reasoning

  • Eight of Leipzig’s last nine Bundesliga wins eclipsed a -1 handicap.
  • Eight of the last nine H2H meetings saw both teams score.
  • Cologne are without a clean sheet in six away games while both teams scored five.

Home advantage could be key for Leipzig

Only four points separates fourth place from tenth in the Bundesliga at the moment and with Leipzig sitting just one point behind visiting Cologne, this is undoubtedly a huge clash in the race for a top-four spot.

RB Leipzig have won more than eight home league games in only one Bundesliga campaign prior to this and with the extra incentive of potentially leapfrogging Cologne into the European places with victory.

Only Dortmund and Bayern have picked up more than Leipzig’s 24 point haul at home so far, which accounts for 77% of their points haul and a sizeable 78% of their league goals! Evidently, Leipzig are very much a ‘home’ side and will no doubt be at the races once again.

Cologne are in with a sniff

Visitors Cologne are no mugs as shown by their unlikely charge at a top-four place this season. Their current 32 point haul is stronger than at this stage of all but one of their last eight top-flight campaigns and they will have picked up more than in the entirety of last season with a win here.

Key to swapping last season’s relegation scrap for a European charge has been some pretty impressive away form, Cologne have not been kept from scoring in five straight away games and they even managed to score twice in defeat to runaway leaders Bayern Munich.

For all of the positives surrounding Cologne, I predict that Leipzig’s imperious home form will continue with a win in this clash. However, I suggest squeezing value from the pick by backing a home win in the ‘win and both teams to score’ market, perhaps by a 3-1 scoreline.
