Bayern Munich is hosting FC Koln at Allianz Arena in round 23 in the German Bundesliga.
After two games without a win, which is very rare for Bayern, they are back on winning track after a fantastic game, and a win against Lazio in the Champions League, on the road I might add. With a draw and a loss in their last 2 Bundesliga games, Bayern is still at the top of the table, but they now have an only 2-point advantage ahead of Leipzig in second place. In their last Bundesliga game, Bayern was facing Eintracht on the road, and they were good with 60% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 81% of the correct passes. Bayern’s defense couldn’t handle Eintracht’s attacks in the first half, and they have conceded 2 goals. In the second half, Bayern was able to score a goal, but only one, and they ended up losing this match 2-1. Lewandowski was the only goalscorer for Bayern here, and he has now scored 26 goals in 21 games so far this season. Kimmich and Coman have each added 8 assists. Nubel, Muller, Pavard, Costa, and Tolisso are all injured, while Kouassi is still questionable for this game. With this great win in the Champions League, I think Bayern’s slump is over, and I think we will see them back in their old form.
Koln has been hot and cold this season, well mostly cold. Koln has lost 3 of their last 4 games while winning only 2 of their last 6 games. With these 2 wins, Koln was able to climb out of the relegation zone, and they are now in 14th place with 21 points, but they are still in big danger. Koln has scored only 20 goals this season, and they are one of the weakest offensive teams in Bundesliga. Rexhbecaj is the leading goalscorer for Koln with only 5 goals, while Skhiri added 3 goals. Kainz, Andersson, Hector, and Bornauw are all injured for Koln at this time. In their last Bundesliga game, Koln was playing against Stuttgart at home, and they have had 52% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 82% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a bad game for Koln, as the matter of fact, Koln was a slightly better team here, but they conceded a goal in the 49th minute, and they weren’t able to get back. Koln has lost this game 0-1. I believe Koln will stay in Bundesliga next season as well because they are a solid team, but it will take a lot from them to accomplish that.
Koln hasn’t won any of their last 6 games against Bayern, while Bayern is still undefeated at home this season. I think this will be a one-sided game, and Bayern will be the dominant team here. I expect a blowout win from Bayern.
