Our match prediction:
Newly promoted Ingolstadt have surprised everyone with their performances this season and it is now clear that they will avoid the relegation tussle altogether despite being predicted a straight return to the second division. Die Schanzer have done pretty well of late at home, defeating Mainz, Augsburg and Werder Bremen, and with their next opponents fans from impressive since the Bundesliga campaign resumed, another good result appears on the cards for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s charges. FC Koln find themselves in mid table mediocrity at the moment, sitting eight points clear of the bottom three and six points behind European positions, and chances are they will remain pretty much where they are at the moment. Nevertheless, the latest poor run is a cause for concern ahead of the clash with high flying Ingolstadt, with back to back defeats to Borussia M’gladbach and out-of-form Hertha enough to suggest that the Billy Goats could find it hard to get anything from this game.
