Our football match prediction:
Koln will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Darmstadt and Wolfsburg when they take on Freiburg at their Schwarzwald-Stadion on Matchday 20. The Billy Goats are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Freiburg, but beating Christian Streich’s men on the road is easier said than done. Both teams sit in the top half of the Bundesliga standings and a close encounter appears on the cards. Breisgau-Brasilianer are after their seventh home win of the season, but considering that Koln impressed in the 6-1 win over Darmstadt in their last away fixture, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Schwarzwald-Stadion. The two sides seem to be evenly matched at the moment and seeing that they should be happy with one point from Sunday’s football game, there is every chance both Freiburg and Koln will adopt a cautious approach on day 20.
