BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Saturday afternoon it’s Dortmund vs FC Koln. The game will kick-off at 14:30 and Dortmund will be hoping to build on a strong start to their Bundesliga campaign.
Dortmund head into the clash against Koln with just one defeat in the season so far. That loss came against arch-rivals Bayern Munch in their last league outing. Apart from that blip, Dortmund have enjoyed a solid start to the 20/21 season. They currently sit one place and one point behind leaders Bayern.
Manager Lucien Favre will be hoping his side can bounce back from the defeat against Bayern with a strong performance against strugglers FC Koln. On paper, this looks like an easy win for ‘Die Borussen’. Bookmakers have Dortmund as the heavy favourites, Boylesport is only giving fans 2/9 on the home win.
Punters looking for more value and bigger odds might want to look at the overs goal market. Dortmund are the second-highest scorers in the Bundesliga this season, and they have a history of smashing goals past FC Koln. Last time the two met, the game ended in a 5-1 victory for Dortmund. In the previous four meetings, over 4.5 goals has been reached on three occasions. You can get 12/5 with Boylesports on that outcome.
It’s been an awful start to the season for FC Koln. They’ve played eight games and failed to record a single win. Manager Markus Gisdol will be aware that things must turn around quickly for Die Geißböcke (The Billy Goats) or he’ll be looking for a new job come Christmas.
A trip to Dortmund is the worst possible fixture FC Koln could face given their recent form. Looking at the historical stats between these two teams doesn’t provide much comfort for Koln fans either. Dortmund hasn’t conceded a goal in 4 of their last 6 home against FC Koln.
From a betting perspective, I can’t recommend many bets for fans of FC Koln. The only option might be taking a punt on a penalty being awarded during the match. There has been a penalty in Koln’s last 6 Bundesliga games.
Marcel Schmelzer and Dan-Axel Zagadou will likely miss the clash through injury.
FC Koln could be without Benno Schmitz, Anthony Modeste, Jonas Hector and Florian Kainz through injury.
