Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Koln will be looking to escape the relegation zone when they take on Arminia Bielefeld at RheinEnergieStadion on Sunday afternoon. The Billy Goats head into the match following a heavy 3-0 loss to Hoffenheim, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga. Both Cestic and Ehizbue were substituted after just 30 minutes in the last league match, and they are unlikely to feature against Arminia Bielefeld, with Mere and Thielmann pushing for a start.
The newcomers, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. Since Arminia Bielefeld have already suffered five defeats on the travels this season, we are tempted to put our money on the Billy Goats this time out. The likes of Niemann, Prietl, and Voglsammer are all sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Frederik Sorensen):
Frederik Sorensen is a Danish footballer who plays for Bundesliga side Koln as a defender. He plays as a centre back, but he is capable of playing as a right back as well. Sorensen was born in Copenhagen on 14 April, 1992 and he played for the likes of Roskilde KFUM, Himmelev-Veddelev, FC Roskilde and Lyngby during his youth career.
The 194-cm-tall defender was spotted by Juventus scouts in 2010 and on 27 August he officially signed a contract with the “Old Lady”. Nonetheless, Sorensen made no more than 17 league appearances for Juve between 2010 and 2012. On 17 January, 2012 he joined Bologna for a fee of € 2.5 million and he made 42 league appearances for the Rossoblu, scoring two goals for the club.
After ending his loan spell with Verona in 2015, he signed a deal with Koln for €1.6 million and he has been playing for the Bundesliga outfit ever since. Frederik Sorensen has 15 caps for Denmark U21 team and he played for the U20 and the U17 team as well.
Highlighted Team (Arminia Bielefeld):
Arminia Bielefeld is a German club founded on May 3, 1905. Die Arminen play home games at Bielefelder Alm. The venue was built in 1926, and it can hold up to 26,515 spectators. Arminia Bielefeld have yet to win the Bundesliga trophy, but they did well to lift the West German Cup title on two occasions (1966, 1974).
Back in 1922 they won the Western German football championship, with the team repeating the success the following year. Arminia Bielefeld wear dark blue shirts when playing at home ground, while white is the dominant colour of their away jersey. In the 2019/20 season Arminia returned to the Bundesliga, where they undisputedly belong.
Bruno Labbadia is considered one of the most famous footballers who played for the club. The ex Bayern Munchen attacker scored 50 goals in 98 appearances in the league for Arminia Bielefeld. Labbadia has two caps for the German national team, and six for the West Germany U21.
