FC Koln vs Hertha Berlin – Prediction, and Match Preview

FC Koln vs Hertha Berlin –  Fans of FC Koln will be hoping for a repeat of their previous performance, which was a 1-2 victory in Bundesliga 1 over Bayer Leverkusen.

FC Koln had 36% of the possession in that game and made seven efforts on goal, of which two were successful. Davie Selke scored the goals for Cologne (14′, 36′).

Bayer Leverkusen’s 13 total attempts, three shots on goal at the other end, only oneof which were on target. Bayer Leverkusen scored thanks to Amine Adli (28′).

FC Koln hasn’t preserved a clean sheet in far too many of their recent games. They will be concerned that Cologne has allowed five goals while being scored against in five of their last six games.

Prior to this match, Cologne had lost its previous five league home matches. That is never ideal.

Hertha Berlin will enter the match fresh off a 2-1 victory over Stuttgart in their previous match of Bundesliga 1.

Hertha Berlin had 30% of the possession in that game and made seven efforts on goal, scoring on two of them. Marc-Oliver Kempf (29′) and Florian Niederlechner (45′) scored goals for Hertha Berlin.

Stuttgart made four tries at goal for their rivals, with only one of those being successful. Stuttgart’s goal came in the 38th minute from Serhou Guirassy.

Hertha Berlin has allowed goals in six of their last six games, totaling 14 goals against them. The numbers speak for themselves.

Hertha Berlin have not played particularly well on defense. We’ll simply have to wait and see if that pattern continues in this upcoming game.

FC Koln vs Hertha Berlin – Betting Analysis

A review of their previous meetings, which date back to 22/02/2020, reveals that FC Koln has won three of them and Hertha Berlin has won one, with two games ending in draws.

Together, they scored 15 goals throughout this time, with Köln scoring 11 and Hertha scoring four. There are 2.5 goals scored on average every game.

The previous league matchup between these clubs occurred on Bundesliga 1 Match Day 15 on 12/11/2022, with Hertha Berlin defeating FC Koln 2-0.

Ten shots on goal were made by Cologne, and none of them were successful. Christian Dingert was the official umpire.

We believe that, when comparing these two sides, FC Koln can and should control the most of the possession and be able to score on a couple of its chances. But even though Hertha Berlin may struggle to score goals, we do expect them to respond at some point.
