FC Cologne to Win
The Billy Goats are staring at relegation to the second division unless they can climb out of the hole they have created for themselves. Friedhelm Funkel took charge of the club in early April and has seen Cologne register successive victories. With SC Freiburg losing four successive fixtures on the road, the Billy Goats will fancy their chances for a third successive victory and the much-needed three points.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Cologne's last four fixtures have seen three goals or more. On the other hand, the Breisgau Brazilians have been involved in two games seeing the Over 2.5 come to fruition across the same period. While Cologne have begun to score freely under Friedhelm Funkel, the new manager has yet to iron out their defensive issues. Couple this with the fact that they need points, it will be an open fixture in search of goals.
Both Teams to Score: No
The hosts have conceded in six successive outings, whilst troubling the scorers themselves in five of them. While Freiburg have failed to get on the scoreboard in their last two away trips, they will fancy their chances on Sunday night. With both sides needing points and Cologne showing a penchant for the dramatic, goals on either side of the pitch will be observed.
Cologne vs Freiburg: Team News and Match Preview
The tipsy turvy nature of Cologne continues in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season. The Billy Goats have found it hard to maintain any rhythm, bringing them to the brink of relegation. They have three games to secure survival in the German top-flight football and can salvage the season with positive results. Ondrej Duda has hit form at the right time and Cologne will need his goals along with midfield presence.
The Breisgau Brazilians were in the run for Europa League qualifying slots but have stumbled late in the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign. Chief to their slide has been their dreadful away form, where they have only won four games all season. Despite this, come the end of the campaign, Christian Streich will be pleased to maintain a successive 8th place finish with SC Freiburg. They will have to negotiate their final three fixtures, especially with their frontmen failing to get on the scoreboard. However, they will be optimistic about their chances given topscorer Vincenzo Grifo's return to the first-team fold.
