Market: Cologne draw no bets
Chances: 1/1 @ BetUS
Eager to make another Bundesliga announcement on Saturday afternoon, Cologne will travel to the Weserstadion to face a struggling Werder Bremen.
Starting with the hosts, while Werder Bremen may have almost secured their Bundesliga status for another season, Ole Werner’s men are indeed limping on their way to the finish line. The last time the River Islanders saw a 2-1 loss away to RB Leipzig, the River Islanders had little to celebrate after returning from the World Cup winter break. While the Greens could have pulled off a spectacular 4-2 victory over Hertha Berlin last month, it looks like it was only a slight boost for Werner’s pessimistic side. In fact, Werder Bremen have recorded just one win in any of their last 10 home matches – a streak that dates back to 25 February. Similarly, having lost each of their last three consecutive Bundesliga matches 2-1, they have also gained a reputation for their constant problems on home soil. It should be emphasized that Saturday’s hosts have lost each of their previous four matches at the Weserstadion.
As for the guests, while Cologne may have shown a number of problems prior to the March international break, the Billy Goats are back with a roar of some style. For the last time, Steffen Baumgart’s men put on another stellar performance as they fought their way to a 5-2 home win over Hertha Berlin. With the mood at their camp in high season, Saturday’s guests will head to the Weserstadion, sure they’ll cause another upset. With their recent purple spot marked by a stellar 2-1 win away to Europa League semi-finalists Bayer Leverkusen on 5 May, Cologne have only lost one of their previous seven top flight matches. Given that this streak started in mid-May, it should also be noted that Baumgart’s side have amassed nine points in their last four Bundesliga matches. Claiming a stunning 7-1 scoreline when they welcomed Werder Bremen into town on January 21st, we’re backing betting on an away draw this weekend.
