Our football match prediction:
Bayern Munich will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid when they welcome Koln at their Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Bundesliga champions are eager to keep their 100% record intact in the national championship and there we predict that coach Carlo Ancelotti is going to field the best possible side this time out. Bayern Munich are a real force to be reckoned with at home and it has to be noted that the Bavarians scored 12 goals in last three league games at Allianz Arena. Koln, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, but beating the reigning champions on the road is easier said than done. Bayern Munich emerged triumphant in previous six meetings between the two teams in the elite division and there is every chance the hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match.
