Dortmund vs Koln: top free betting tips

Dortmund and Koln face each other in the first round of the Bundesliga at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, 19 August. Both Dortmund and the Billy Goats enter this game after victories in DFB Pokal against Schott Mainz and Osnabruck respectively.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Four of the last five H2Hs of these two sides at Signal Iduna Park have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Dortmund have been exceptional against Koln in front of the home crowd by thrashing 19 goals in the aforestated period. The Black and Yellows have also notched 17 goals in the same number of home and away league games. On the other hand, Koln has also scored an average of two goals per game in the last five road fixtures in Bundesliga. Therefore, a total of Over 2.5 Goals will be our first pick for this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Dortmund and Koln have shared four BTTS outcomes in their last five H2H meetings against each other. BVB’s scoring line has not been in any trouble in the league games at Signal Iduna Park. However, their defence has conceded goals in three of the last five home games in the Bundesliga. Meanwhile, Koln also scored in each of the last five league outings away from Rhein Energie Stadion. But the Billy Goats failed to secure a single clean sheet in that course. Hence, we can expect goals from both ends of the field in this game.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Dortmund

Koln has conceded only one goal in the previous four consecutive road fixtures in Bundesliga. However, Dortmund have shown their brilliance against the upcoming rivals and scored multiple goals in four of the last five H2Hs against Koln at home, conceding only four goals. BVB have also rattled the net twice or more in each of the last five league outings at Signal Iduna Park. Defensively, the Black and Yellows leaked five goals in that course. Given these statistics, we predict a 2-1 victory for Dortmund in this fixture.
