Bayern Munich take on the visitors Koln in the round 17 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 24th at Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern are clearly the favorite for this match. Yes, Munich lost points in the previous round, having played in a draw on the road at Leipzig. But hardly anyone doubts the victory of the reigning champion of the country in the home match against Cologne. And we expect at least three goals from the hosts. Everything is in order with an attack in Munich - 50 goals were scored in 16 rounds.

Koln in the previous round of the Bundesliga showed off plenty of Werder Bremen (7-1) and slightly rose in the table, currently seating exactly in its middle of Bundesliga standings. But everyone understands that the “Goats” will lose the match in Munich. And most likely they will concede a lot of goals. The team presses and plays on the attack in fights against any opponent. And to do the same in the match against Bayern - it's suicide.
Yes, Cologne is good at home matches. But on the road, this team looks deplorable, in eight away matches they managed to collect only six points. The Goats suffered most of their defeats this season on opponents’ fields. Four previous meetings on the road ended with four defeats with an aggregate scored 2-14. Hertha and Freiburg shipped two goals to the gates of Cologne, and Borussia from Gladbach and Mainz - five goals each. I think that at least three times the wards of Steffen Baumgart will be upset by the Munich team. Bayern can afford to relax in away matches, but they do not spare their opponents in the home stands. In seven home matches, the team has scored 26 goals this season, upsetting opponents on average almost four times in 90 minutes. In the previous four matches of the Bundesliga in Munich, the hosts did not skimp on goals: they shipped four to Bayer, five to Freiburg, six to Werder and Mainz. In the last two head-to-heads at home against Cologne, they were stronger than the opponent 3-2 and 5-1. I expect three goals from the hosts this time as well.
Prediction for the match: Bayern Munich to win.
