FC Koln – Dortmund Match Prediction | 23-08-2019

The last seasons runners-up are determined to put an end to Bayern Munchens dominance in the Bundesliga, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to regain the domestic trophy. As expected, Borussia Dortmund outplayed Augsburg 5-1 in the opening match of the season, with Paco Alcacer scoring a brace for Lucien Favres troops. England rising star Sancho, who found the net in the 5-1 win over Augsburg as well, will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the away team.

However, the clubs biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Borussias biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well.

They are still seven points from safety, but the recent improvement has given them hope. That is, however, not enough to take them off the bottom after 20 games (13 pts). The biggest problem for FC Koln has been their early season form which was terrible. Recent form is definitely in favour of the hosts, but will that be sufficient to carry them in this FC Koln vs Borussia Dortmund fixture? The immediate target for Cologne, though, has to be the relegation play-off spot which is just four points away. They picked just three points from their first 16 rounds (D3, L13), but have picked up ten from the next four (W3, D1). They didnt taste a victory in the Bundesliga until the 17th round of fixtures and mid-December.
