Our match prediction:
The Bavarians completed a miraculous comeback after trailing two goals behind Juventus at Alianz Arena (4-2). It seemed that Guardiola’s charges were about to be eliminated, but Muller secured the extra-time with an amazing header, while Alcantara and Coman sealed Juventus’ faith in overtime. This morale-boosting victory means that Bayern will arrive to Koln in high spirits and with serious desire to continue their five-game winning streak against the Billy Goats. Peter Stoger’s side ended their their winless run by beating bottom-draw Hannover (2-0), which kept them nestled safely in the upper half of the table, hense die Geißbocke enter the upcoming clash free of pressure. Even though der FCB have been having their ups and downs in recent matches, it seems highly unlikely that the Cologne-based team will pose a significant threat to Bayern’s intention of taking all three points at Sportpark Müngersdorf, especially bearing in mind that Koln lost three of their last four football matches on home soil. We predict a sure triumph for the visitors, with a possible spectacle for the spectators.
