Koln vs Leipzig: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Koln are set to host 3rd-placed Leipzig for the Bundesliga clash. Will the Bulls beat the Billy Goats on February 4? The answer is in our prediction.
Koln look solid after the World Cup break, getting five points in three matches and separating themselves from the relegation zone at least for some time. Steffen Baumgart's men smashed Werder (7:1) and held Bayern to draw (1:1), but failed to beat bottom-placed Schalke (0:0) in the most recent match. The Billy Goats are currently at the 12th position, ten points away from European places.
Leipzig gained impressive form after the World Cup break, putting up a solid performance in each of three Bundesliga matches. Marco Rose's men drew to Bayern (1:1), trashed Schalke (6:1) and beat Stuttgart (2:1), rising up to a 3rd position in the standings. The Bulls are just two points away from the top, so they are extremely motivated for a trip to Koln, where team is usually successful.
Ставка Correct score 1:3
Two of five latest matches of Leipzig finished by that score
Ставка Leipzig to score in each of the halves
This bet played in four latest away matches of Leipzig
Ставка First half: total over 1.5 goals
This bet played in three of five latest home matches of Koln
Both teams have no defeats in 2023 and they are looking to extend their unbeaten runs. Koln will play at home, where they are always successful offensively. But Leipzig are also coming for a victory and will probably remain active up front throughout the whole match. We are expecting a high-scoring game here.
Our prediction - total over 2.5 goals
Despite being an away team, Leipzig are slight favourites of the match. The Bulls gained momentum and look much better than the opponent right now. Koln will surely create some problems to the opponent, but hosts are unlikely to achieve a success. Visitors have a much better squad.
Our second bet is on Leipzig to win
