RB Leipzig will welcome Köln to Red Bull Arena for a matchday 22 fixture in Germany Bundesliga. The last meeting on 18th September 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. RB Leipzig has won 4 matches, and Köln triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.11 goals, while both teams score 89% of the time.
RB Leipzig’s latest fixture against Bayern München ended in an away 3-2 loss. I expected more from RB Leipzig. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. RB Leipzig scored in both halves in the 27th and 53rd minute.
Köln’s recent game against Freiburg ended in a home 1-0 win. Although Die Geißböcke didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Köln put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 23rd minute.
Since the start of the season, RB Leipzig is more dominant at home. They have eight wins out of 11 games on home soil. Roten Bullen’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 36% of home games.
Köln has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Köln wins 1.10 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Köln kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won two consecutive matches. RB Leipzig is currently unbeaten at home in two games. Since the start of the season, they have just three home defeats.
Die Geißböcke is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against RB Leipzig.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. RB Leipzig wins on average 2.18 points per home game, compared to 1.10 points per away game for Köln. My prediction is RB Leipzig to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.65 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 66% of RB Leipzig’s home and Köln’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. RB Leipzig has scored in 91% of home games. Köln is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
