Partizan vs Cologne: Top Free Betting Tips
This has proven to be the most difficult group in the tournament and this match could decide which team will win it all. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
When it comes to goals, this group has had a few games with a ton and a few games with less than 2.5 too. Both sides had a game with 6 goals and then two games with less than 2.5 goals. Last week, they played in Cologne and Partizan reached a minimal 0:1 win which was a shock to everyone. In this fixture, we definitely expect a goal from Partizan but we also expect more effort and action from the visitors too.
Match Result – Draw
Partizan should be a much weaker team than Cologne on paper but they have been the best club in this group and they will not want to lose this game. Even a draw will be extremeley hard-fought and we think that it is the most possible result here. Cologne have not been in the best form this season and it showed in the matches in the ECL to date. We expect a 1:1 or a 2:2 draw at full time.
Over 9.5 Corners
When it comes to corners, both sides had some great numbers in the previous games and we generally expect to see a high number in this fixture too. Partizan had 15, 12, and 11 corners in their three games to date. On the other side, Cologne had 14, 8 and 12 corners in their three games to date. The 12 were last week against Partizan in Germany.
Partizan vs Cologne: Form, Recent Games, and News
The Serbian league has had the same two champions for decades and it is always either Partizan or Crvena Zvezda. Last season, it was Zvezda while Partizan finished in 2nd place with just two points less. Their attack is incredible but their defense has been unbelievable in the domestic league. The team conceded just 10 goals in 30 games last season. In Europe, the team has been quite impressive this season and still does not have a defeat after three games against top opposition in the ECL.
Cologne or FC Koln are definitely far from the best teams in the Bundesliga but the championship does allow a total of 8 spots in the European tournaments and Cologne finished 7th last season. Their defense has not been great and they do not have the most capable attack (although they sometimes score 3+ unexpectedly). Overall, we definitely expected more from them in this group but in truth, this is one of the hardest groups in the tournament.
