RB Leipzig vs FC Koln Prediction
RB Leipzig took a step closer to the top spot by pulling off an emphatic 4-2 win over Hertha Berlin on the road before heading into the international break. The hosts have now emerged victoriously in four of their previous five clashes in all competitions and are currently on a two-match winning streak in the Bundesliga as well.
It is also worth mentioning that Leipzig have stumbled just once on home soil this season. Their most recent clash at the Red Bull Arena, in particular, was one to remember with the hosts banging in eight unanswered goals past Mainz.
On the other hand, at the rate that FC Koln are going, the visitors could well be heading back to the second division. The away side are on a three-match losing streak in the Bundesliga and are just three points shy of hitting rock bottom in the cluster.
To pile on even more misery, FC Koln have come out on top just once in their last six outings, garnering no more than four points from a possible twenty-four. Given the promising form that Leipzig are on, FC Koln are likely to be deprived of all three points in this one.
Furthermore, Leipzig are not shy in racking up the goals tally, and it was certainly evident in their previous fixture here. Meanwhile, Koln have hardly shown any resistance in their trips on the road and have conceded thirteen goals so far.
Hence, count on RB Leipzig to have their scoring boots on and to post over 3.5 goals on the final scorecards.
