RB Leipzig to Win
Die Roten Bullen were held to a goalless draw by Hoffenheim at the Red Bull Arena. With Julien Nagelsmann's side involved in their third meeting within a week, fatigue is setting in the title challengers. However, they should have enough in the tank to overcome FC Cologne, who are winless in their nine competitive outings.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
The Billy Goats have scored 9 goals in their last 10 Bundesliga outings, whilst conceding 21 in the process. They will come across a Leipzig side, which has averaged two goals per game in the same period. Nagelsmann's charges are struggling for goals but do not allow leeway to their rivals, allowing only six goals in the process. Moreover, four of their last five games have seen less than 2.5 goals.
Both Teams to Score: No
Leipzig come into the fixture after keeping three clean sheets from their last five fixtures. On the other side of the pitch will be Friedhelm Funkel's charges, who have been shut out twice in the same period. With Leipzig claiming the best defensive record in German top-flight football, they have enough solidity at the back to keep Cologne's struggling attackers at bay.
Cologne vs RB Leipzig: Team News and Match Preview
Heading into the final round of games, the Billy Goats have a tough task on their hands to avoid relegation. Friedhelm Funkel has been unable to arrest their decline, as the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign goes from bad to worse. They head into the fixture on the back of three successive defeats, struggling to get on the scoreboard while shipping in goals galore. Cologne missed top-scorer Ondrej Duda on their trip to Leverkusen but should have him available against Leipzig. However, the injury list at Rhein Energie Stadion continues to increase as five players are missing.
Following their defeat to Bayern Munich, Die Roten Bullen have struggled with identity. This was epitomized in their 0-0 draw to Hoffenheim, which made them miss Bayern's slip to Union Berlin. With the gap to the Bundesliga summit standing at seven points, it looks unlikely that Julien Nagelsmann's charges will change the destiny. They will have to remain content with a second-place finish. With a seven-point advantage over third-place Wolfsburg, it gives the Eastern side chance to test out their squad players.
