Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
RheinEnergieStadion will host Saturday’s football game between Koln and Stuttgart, the two old rivals. Koln aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, and seeing that they are only three points clear of the relegation zone, we are positive that the Billy Goats will leave their hearts on the field. The likes of Andersson, Bornauw, Hector, Kainz, Jakobs, and Wolf are likely to miss the game with injuries for the hosts.
Die Schwaben, on the other hand, aim to retain their spot in top ten. Stuttgart head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Hertha Berlin, and seeing that Koln have already produced some thrilling displays in 2021, share of spoils is on the cards at RheinEnergieStadion. It has to be noted that all Didavi, Churlinov, Gonzalez, Castro, Mola, Egloff, and Al Ghaddioui are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
