Köln and Bayern München meet at RheinEnergieStadion, in a match for the 6th round of the Bundesliga. The record of direct confrontations at this stadium is favorable to the visiting team, which in the last 4 matches won 4. Indeed, the last time these two teams met at this stadium was on 02-16-2020, in a match for the Bundesliga that ended with the victory of Bayern München by (1‑4). The goals of the match were scored by M. Uth (70 ‘), for Köln, and R. Lewandowski (3’), S. Gnabry (66 ‘and 12’) and K. Coman (5 ‘), for Bayern München. Attention to the home factor, since Köln tends to achieve different results at home and abroad.
The home team is currently in 16th position, with 2 points won, after 2 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they drew at home against Eintracht Frankfurt by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Stuttgart, by (1‑1). This is a stronger team with the support of its fans, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in their stadium. In the last 10 home matches for all competitions, Köln won 5, drew 2 and lost 3.
For this competition, he has not won 5 games ago. Their defense has not been very solid, since they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition. There is a tendency to have goals in their home matches, since 23 of the last 24 matches they have played have ended with Over 1.5 goals.
Cologne enters this day after an outside draw, to a ball, in the visit to the Stuttgart stadium. The home team must act in a tactical system in 4-3-3, with the aim of using the central zone to invest in the offensive process. In any case, we believe that Colonia will present a fairly conservative attitude, given the quality of today’s rival. In this tactical scheme, the three most advanced players will be Ismail Jakobs, Sebastian Andersson and Marius Wolf. Coach Markus Gisdol will not be able to count on Florian Kainz and Jonas Hector, handed over to the medical department.
Bayern München :
The visiting team is currently in 2nd position, with 12 points won, after 4 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they won away against Arminia Bielefeld by (1‑4). In the last match, they won at home against Eintracht Frankfurt by (5‑0). This is a team that presents similar results at home and away, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 14 wins and 1 loss as a visitor; against 14 victories and 1 draw in his stadium. In their last match, for the UEFA Champions League, they beat Lokomotiv Moskva away by (1‑2). In their last 10 away matches Bayern München has recorded 9 wins and 1 loss. His attack has scored regularly as he has scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 20 of the last 25 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that tends to score many times first: they opened the scoring in 13 of their last 15 games, of these 13 they reached the break with a lead in 12 and always managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90s.
Bayern Munich enter this performance motivated, after a 1×2 win at the Lokomotiv stadium visit, in a Champions League match: Goretzka and Kimmich scored the winning goals. In general, Bayern Munich usually control their games in the midfield of the rival team, through a football of constant triangulations between their players. The visiting team generally operates in a 4-3-3 tactical system, with which it can apply one of its weapons, the counterattack. In this tactical drawing, the three men responsible for launching panic on the opponent’s defense are Coman, Lewandowski and Muller. Apparently, the coach should not be able to count on Armindo Sieb and Alphonso Davies, handed over to the medical department. It should be noted that Corentin Tolisso will also be absent, due to being suspended.
