FC Koln have failed this season in the Bundesliga. Despite the latest 2:2 draw against Schalke 04, “Die Geißbocke” collected only three points with six goals for and 27 goals against in 14 games played within the Bundesliga, having earned not a single triumph. Meanwhile, the club feels better in the UEFA Europa League where they have picked up six points with 7-7 goal difference, being the candidates for promotion to the Play Offs of the competition. The German side got two victories, two draws and eight defeats in 12 away battles of this season.
FK Crvena Zvezda beat FC Koln with 1:0 scoreline on the road in the earlier reverse fixture. Taking into account FC Koln’s problems in this season, I believe that the hosts at least will not lose the forthcoming fight in Belgrade.
Prediction for the match: FK Crvena Zvezda to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
