It is probably unnecessary to conclude Koln’s defeat from Bayern in the last Bundesliga round. Munich arrived in Koln embittered by the loss to Gladbach, so the Goats were caught in the heat of the moment. We know that Bayern is scary when they’re angry. Koln has the seventh-best home record in the division and 50% of home wins. The Rheinlanders began the second round with a confident 3:1 victory over Hertha. In general, before the defeat from Bayern, the Goats had a three-match winning streak.
The Northerners are fighting for promotion. Before the German Cup last 16, Hamburg is in fifth place, two points behind Heidenheim, in the transition zone. Hamburg finished 2021 with a win over Hansa and a draw against Schalke. The Nordic team began 2022 with a 1:1 draw against Dresden Dynamo. In addition to the fact that Hamburg is fighting for tournament placing, the Cup is not a priority for the northerners. We should note that three days after the game against Koln, Hamburg will have to play the derby against St. Pauli. We can’t overlook Hamburg’s away statistics, only seventh in the second Bundesliga, +3=4-2, 12:9 goal difference.
Expert Betting Tips
The last three matches between Koln and Hamburg were unproductive; the teams did not score more than two goals against each other. This trend may continue, and the upcoming game will also draw. As for the outcome, Cologne looks preferable as a home and more seasoned team.
