Dortmund vs FC Koln Prediction and Betting Tips

Bundesliga – Dortmund vs FC Koln Prediction and Betting Tips. In the Round 31 in Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund host FC Koln at Westfalenstadion. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Dortmund vs FC Koln.

Dortmund stand at the 3rd position in Bundesliga and their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 3 and play in the Champions League next season. Hoffenheim stand at the 4th position with only one point less than home side, so Borussia Dortmund have to beat FC Koln in order to keep their current position. Three days ago day they eliminated Bayern Munich in the Semi-finals of the German Cup, so they will be fully motivated to make another good result. Home team have amazing attack and they like to play attacking football and score many goals, but on the other side their defence is very shaky. They conceded at least one goal in their last six games in all competition. On the other side, they scored at least one goal in their last 15 matches in all competitions. Their top scorer, Aubameyang, who has already scored 27 league goals, is in the great form and he could be the most dangerous player for Koln’s defence.

FC Koln stand at the 8th position and they still have a chance to finish the season in the Top 6 and play in the Europa League next season. In order to achieve that goal, they need positive result against Borussia Dortmund. Victory would be amazing result, but they would be satisfied with one point. Visitors are playing very good against Dortmund. They didn’t lose in the last 5 Bundesliga against them, so they hope that tradition will continue and that they will back home with at least one point in their pocket. Interesting fact is that two ex-players of Dortmund will play against their old club, Serbian duo – Subotic and Jojic. Their away performance is not impressive in the recent performance. In the last 5 away matches, FC Koln lost 4 games and took only one point against Ingolstadt. It will be hard for visitors to win this game, but they have nothing to lose, so I expect their attacking performance.

Team News

Home side miss Bartra, M. Götze, Rode, Sahin and  Schürrle. On the other side, visitors will be without Rausch, Risse, Guirassy, Osako and Zoller.
