The matches in the 7th round of the Bundesliga championship will start on Friday, October 1, 2021. This weekend’s fixtures will open with a game in Cologne, where the Cologne team will take on the championship outsider Greuther Furth at the local RheinEnergie Stadium (RheinEnergieSTADION). The match will kick off at 21:30 Moscow time.
Knowing how the Billy Goats have been playing their games this season, their opponents apparently have no chances in the upcoming game. Nevertheless, it makes sense to make a prediction for the Cologne vs Greuther match. Anything can happen in such games, so this forecast will not be problematic to successful betting.
Steffen Baumgart’s wards are just one step away from the top five in the German championship. After 6 played rounds, the Billy Goats have 9 points gained and 7th position in the standings. The results of their last three matches played were draws with the same score (1-1) against Freiburg, RB Leipzig, and Eintracht Frankfurt. Obviously, in the upcoming game, Cologne will be determined to win because the team is tired of playing draws.
The team of Stefan Leitl continues to fall in the standings. For more than a month now, Greuther has not been able to earn even a point in championship matches. As a result, the team currently occupies last place in the standings and has only 1 point. Moreover, Stefan Leitl’s charges were defeated in four consecutive rounds. In their previous match, the players of Bayern Munich acted as the offenders, having won Greuther Furth with a score of 3-1 in Greuther.
At the official level, the teams have met each other 18 times. Cologne won 8 matches, while Greuther’s team had two victories. The remaining seven matches ended in a draw.
There is no point in betting on the victory of Cologne. Yes, the hosts are the favorites of the upcoming game, judging from the fact that they are better than their guests by the quality of their games played and team composition. But, in this situation, it is a good idea to make a prediction for the Cologne vs Greuther match, relying on effective football to be performed by both teams.
Probable result – Both teams will score.
