Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After producing a fine display in a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munchen, Arminia Bielefeld will look to escape the relegation zone when they take on Koln in the Bundesliga round 14. Die Arminien are eyeing their second win of the season, and we are positive that they will once again leave their hearts on the field. Forward Florian Kruger misses out through illness, while Lennart Czyborra is sidelined with injury.
The Billy Goats, on the other hand, did well to crush Borussia M’gladbach 4-1 in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their six-game losing run. Koln aim to move closer to the Europa League berth, but seeing the relegation-threatened hosts want this win more than the visitors, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Frank Kramer’s charges. The likes of Jonas Hector, Timo Horn, and Jannes-Kilian Horn are injured for the away team.
