Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Wolfsburg kicked off the new Bundesliga campaign in style, with the team beating Augsburg (2-0) away from home. The Wolves proved their worth against Augsburg and it is no surprise they are considered favourites to win Saturday’s football game against Koln. Over the years Wolfsburg have turned their Volkswagen Arena into a real fortress and they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign. Bas Dost’s injury is in the past and he is likely to lead the line for the hosts against Koln. Peter Stoger’s troops recorded a 2-0 win over Darmstadt in their opener, but we predict that the visitors are going to experience all sorts of problems in Saturday’s clash against Wolfsburg. It has to be noted that the Wolves are unbeaten in previous eight meetings with Koln. Taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon.
