FC Koln is welcoming Eintracht Frankfurt to RheinEnergieStadion in round 23 of the German Bundesliga. Koln is a good team, especially at home, but they lost in their last Bundesliga game. Eintracht has created a lot of chances in their last game, but they couldn’t score, and that game has ended in a draw.
Koln has won only 1 of their last 6 games, and that was against Freiburg, but they didn’t stand a chance against Leipzig last weekend. Leipzig wasn’t particularly good in that game, but Koln was worse, and Koln has lost this match 3-1. Even with these bad results, Koln is in the top half of the table, in 9th place with 32 points. The good news for Koln is they still have a good chance of qualifying for the Europa League, or at least the Conference League. Of the 34 goals Koln has scored so far this season, Modeste has scored 14, but apart from him, there are no other goalscorers anywhere close to him. There are no injuries in Koln as of right now. Koln is doing well, they will secure their spot in Bundesliga for next season soon, and that is the most important thing.
Just when I think Eintracht has found their groove, just when I think those problems they have had in most of their game are somewhat gone, they go on and lose to Wolfsburg without a scored goal. With 31 points, 33 scored goals, and 34 conceded goals, Eintracht is now in 10th place in the Bundesliga standings. There are a few injuries in Koln, and one of those injured players is Paciencia, a player who will be missed by the rest of the team. I know Eintracht has the talent, we know they can play and score goals, but they have been very inconsistent this season, and that is a problem. Luckily for Eintracht, they are a much better team than most of the teams in the bottom half of Bundesliga, and that is why they won’t have any problems staying in the league.
The trends are pretty even here, and these are the teams with similar quality. I think Eintracht has more offense, but Koln has better defense, and for that reason, I will take the draw in this one.
