Borussia Dortmund is hosting FC Koln at Signal Iduna Park in round 9 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia is on fire, and they have won 6 of their last 7 games. During their last 2-game winning streak, Borussia has scored 8 goals while conceding only 2 goals. Earlier this week, Borussia was hosting Club Brugge in the Champions League, and they have won that game 3-0. In the Bundesliga standings, Borussia is in 2nd place with 18 points, just 1 point less than Bayern, and they have scored 20 goals while conceding only 7 goals in 8 games. Haaland is the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 10 goals, while Hummels added 3 goals. Sancho has 4 assists, while Guerreiro added 3 assists. In their latest Bundesliga game, Borussia was playing on the road against Hertha, and they were the dominant team with 60% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Borussia Dortmund was losing 1-0 at halftime, but with 5 unanswered goals in the second half, Borussia has won this game 2-5. With 9 points, Borussia is also at the top of their group in the Champions League, and they will advance to the next stage, but they can still lose the top spot if they lose focus.
Koln is still without a win in Bundesliga this season, and they are in 17th place with only 3 points, 8 scored goals, and 14 conceded goals in 8 games. Koln has lost 3 of their last 4 games, including their latest game against Union Berlin at home. Koln was decent in that match with 49% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 78% of the correct passes. The first half ended in a 1-1 draw, but Koln conceded a penalty kick in the 72nd minute, which Koln’s goalkeeper saved, but the ball bounced back to Union Berlin, and they scored a goal. Koln has lost this match 1-2, and their agony continues. Drexler and Andersson are the leading goalscorers for Koln with 2 goals each, while Duda has 1 goal and 1 assist. Kainz, Modeste, and Schmitz are all injured, and they will miss this game. Koln is playing nice soccer, but their defense is just terrible, and their offense can’t pick up the slack. It will be a tough season for Koln, but I believe they can stay outside the relegation zone and stay in Bundesliga.
When playing at home, Dortmund hasn’t lost to Koln in their last 19 games, while Koln hasn’t won any of their last 9 games. Koln also hasn’t won any of their last 8 games on the road. The trends are heavily on Borussia’s side, and they are the huge favorites in this game. I’m taking Borussia and goals.
