Stadium: Rhein Energie (Cologne)
The seventh round of the German Bundesliga starts with a match between Koln and Greuther Furth. The hosts, who are off to a great start to the season, are logically the favourites. The Goats have a good chance of climbing into the Eurocup zone, at least for one day.
After the 2-2 defeat by Bayern Munich, Koln played four games in the Bundesliga, and not once did the Goats lose during this period. First, Koln were stronger than Bochum 2-1, then they drew 1-1 with Freiburg, Leipzig and Eintracht. As a result, before the start of the 7th round, the Goats are in the seventh position, one point behind Mainz, who are situated in the Conference League zone. A win against Greuther Furth would catch Freiburg and Dortmund on points, surpassing Mainz in the table.
In the 2021/22 season, Greuther Furth have six defeats in seven games. Apart from five defeats in the German championship, let us not forget the German Cup elimination from the modest Babelsberg. Greuther Furth lost to Bayern in the last round, although the Bavarians managed to score a goal against the reigning champions. In the Bundesliga table, Greuther Furth are 18th, one point behind 15th place and four points adrift of relegation.
