FC Koln vs RB Leipzig prediction

A thrilling 3-3 draw away at Monchengladbach in the Rhine Derby did little to allay fears of relegation for FC Koln who remained 16th on the log just two points clear of 17th-placed Mainz and 7 points away from safety. Die Geißböcke (The Billy Goats) have found the going tough in recent weeks, failing to win any of their last 5 league matches. As we get to the homestretch, alarm bells are certainly ringing as they try to put together a last-ditch effort to get themselves out of the relegation zone. This will be a tough one for them though but it will certainly give an indication of their willpower to wriggle their way to safety.

RB Leipzig bounced back from a loss to Bayern Munich with impressive back-to-back wins over Bochum and Darmstadt. Yes, those are some of the bottom feeders but they took care of business as they should and will be looking to do the same against the wobbly guests here. Having exited the Champions League at the hands of perennial winners Real Madrid, Leipzig are making a case to make a return next season. They are currently 5th on the log, just a point behind Dortmund, with whom they are in a do-or-die race for the elusive 4th place.

There is no doubt this game means a lot for both teams, albeit for different reasons. Cologne are trying to manoeuvre their way out of relegation woes while Leipzig are gunning for the Champions League slots on the table. We expect a tight battle here but we feel all the momentum is with the visitors at the moment coming into this match. We are therefore backing them to win with a 1-2 correct score as our main FC koln vs RB Leipzig prediction.

Prediction 3: Over 3.5 Bookings

With the league coming to the homestretch, there is desperation to get points as teams try to position themselves accordingly. In this game, both teams are desperate to get points on the board and that means that this game, despite their current positions on the log, will be tightly contested.

The reverse game back in October in Leipzig was feisty. It not only had 9 total bookings but a red card too! There is likely to be some deep-seated feelings bubbling underneath the surface ahead of this return leg.

We fancy this game to be quite chirpy and very physical. As a result, we are going for at least 4 bookings to be dished out here as our final FC Koln vs RB Leipzig prediction for this match.
