Koln vs Leipzig: prediction for the Bundesliga match
In the fifth round of Bundesliga Koln, who put up a decent start of the season, will host Leipzig, who suffered three defeats at the start of the season. Will visitors record a victory on September 18? The answer is in our prediction.
Koln, currently managed by Steffen Baumgart, recorded seven points in first four rounds and they are currently at the seventh spot in the standings, they are five points behind the leader. Team lost only one match in ten most recent fixtures, they are in a good form now. In the previous round team played a draw with Freiburg (1:1) on an away match, before that they recorded a home victory over Bochum (2:1). Florian Kainz got an injury, he became another injuried player in Billy Goats' squad.
Leipzig are in a shaky form at the start of the season, team lost three games in Bundesliga already. After a confident victory over Stuttgart (4:0) Bulls suffered two defeats in matches against two Bundesliga leaders - Wolfsburg (0:1) and Bayern (1:4). They also had a difficult match at Manchester in the Champions League, where Jesse Marsch's team was beaten by Manchester City (3:6). Now they are at the 12th position in the standings with three points.
Two most recent victories of Leipzig were secured with that result
In five most recent away games club scored three goals after the half-time
In five most recent head-to-head matches this bet won three times
Leipzig have a better and more experienced squad in comparision with their opponent. Hosts have a number of injuried players, so visitors might get advantage of this. Bulls are extremely motivated to prove that their recent results are just an accident.
We should note that Leipzig had serious opponents, Koln had easier schedule at the start. We think that hosts will be heavily beaten by angered Bulls, it already happened twice in four most recent matches, we offer to place a bet on that.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) on Leipzig

Visitors have a great offensive potential and they should be able to score many goals against the opponent like Koln. In four most recent head-to-head matches Leipzig scored nine goals. Hosts will play on counter-attacks and will try to punish their opponent. In our opinion, we will see another offensive match, which will bring a number of goals.
Our second bet is on total over three goals
