RheinEnergieStadion, Cologne, Germany.
Monday 1st June 2020.
Kick-off: 20:30 (CEST).
Leipzig travel to Cologne in one of the biggest Bundesliga matches of the weekend.
Strong season back
FC Köln fans will be pleased with their team's performances and results during their first season back in the Bundesliga as they sit in a comfortable mid-table position. They have very little to play for as they seem to be too far behind the Europa League spots and a few wins in the remaining games should see them avoid relegation with ease. Köln are at odds of 5.30 to defeat RB Leipzig in Monday evening's match.
Leipzig will rue the number of matches they've drawn this season, and they have fallen too far behind Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga. Leipzig have claimed two draws either side of an impressive 0-5 win against Mainz since the league returned. They still have plenty to play for as the competition for Champions League places is fierce and only two points separate third from fifth. Leipzig are at 1.56 to defeat Köln.
Leipzig ran out comfortable 4-1 winners last time out with two Emil Forsberg goals. He's at 2.75 to score again in this match. Expect Leipzig to have the majority of possession with Köln attempting to expose them on the counter. Leipzig are known to get frustrated if they struggle to get an early goal, and if Köln keep it tight, they will back themselves to get a result. If Leipzig take the lead early, then the floodgates could open like in their previous match (against Köln). Köln will have to be defensively organised to get the win here — something they have struggled with this season — conceding 52 goals so far in the campaign.
FC Köln: Rafael Czichos.
RB Leipzig: Yissif Poulsen.
This match should be closer than the previous game between the two earlier in the season. However, we're still tipping Leipzig to win and both teams to score at 2.52.
