Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Koln and Borussia M’gladbach go head to head at RheinEnergieStadion in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The Billy Goats made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering back-to-back losses to Hoffenheim (2-3) and Arminia Bielefeld (0-1). Koln are low on confidence ahead of Matchday 3, and it should come as no surprise the betting odds for away win have been dropping.
It has to be noted that the Billy Goats had no more than two shots on target in the defeat to Arminia. Die Fohlen, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Union Berlin. Borussia M’gladbach are eager to record their first win of the season, and they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Die Fohlen emerged triumphant in each of the previous two meetings between the two clubs, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
