FC Koln vs Dortmund: Match Preview and Prediction

FC Koln vs Dortmund: Borussia Dortmund eventually outperformed Darmstadt, defeating them 3-0 last weekend. When FC Koln drew against Heidenheim seven days ago, it was one of their best attacking performances in a long time.

Dortmund, fifth in the Bundesliga, cannot afford to lose to relegation-fighting opponents. Last weekend, Borussia Dortmund beat Darmstadt 3-0 away to start the year. Edin Terzic’s soldiers commanded. They oversaw everything on the pitch from whistle to whistle.

Dortmund’s four-game Bundesliga losing streak came to an end with the victory at Darmstadt. They will have a great opportunity to support it on Saturday afternoon at RheinEnergieStadion when they play 1. FC Koln in Gameweek No. 18.

Koln sits one point clear of Bundesliga bottom-place Darmstadt. This season, they have won two games and scored the fewest goals in the league (11). Their defense has been good lately, as none of their last eight league games have seen three or more goals.

Last weekend, Davie Selke scored the game’s only goal in a 1-1 draw with Heidenheim at the Billy Goats’ home field, breaking a drought of three straight games without a goal.
