Bundesliga. Round 13
Stadium: Rhein Energie (Cologne)
The Rhine Derby will take place in Cologne. However, the bookmakers still consider the Colts as the minimum favorites. It’s important that both teams are approaching their meeting in a good mood. A week ago, the Bully Goats earned a draw in Mainz in strong style, while Borussia thrashed Greuther Fürth at home.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
In contrast to last season, which was almost a failure for the Cologne team, the Billy Goats started the current championship with a claim to a place at the top of the standings. In any case, Köln flatly refuses to fight for survival and probably rightly so after the nervous end of last season. Separately, note that Cologne did not lose a single game in the Bundesliga 2021/22 at home, winning three times and drawing as many. And if they win on Saturday, the Goats will catch up with Borussia on points, and if they win by three goals or more, they will also surpass their rival in the standings.
After the Berlin loss to Hertha, Borussia played four official matches: three in Bundesliga and one in the German Cup, won three times, conceded only twice, and played a draw away with Mainz. The results are excellent, but the team is only 9th before the start of round 13, but two points away from the European Cup zone. It means that, given a certain set of circumstances, Gladbach could climb up into the top-6 after this round, but they need at least to beat Köln on the road.
Injuries and suspensions
- Köln: Timo Horn, Jannes-Kilian Horn;
- Mönchengladbach: Beyer, Doucoure, Kramer, Embolo, Jantschke.
