Our match prediction:
Borussia are not having a beginning of 2016 as they have hoped for, with a mere one triumph from five matches in all competitions. Andre Schubert’s charges need to end the negative trend as soon as possible if they plan to keep their Champions League dream alive. A good thing for the Foals is that Koln is coming to town, a team that recorded a single triumph at Stadion im Borussia-Park in their previous fifteen visits (D3 L11). The Billy Goats achieved a morale-boosting triumph against Eintracht Frankfurt in the previous round (3-1), with another fine performance by Anthony Modeste (10), who has been highly productive lately. Even so, the RheinEnergieStadion outfit are struggling on their travels this season, and this is why we predict a home win this time out, especially bearing in mind that die Fohlen lost just once on home soil from the start of the season.
