Slovacko will face Cologne in a curious game from the 5th round in the Europa Conference League this Thursday.
Slovacko vs Cologne: Top Free Betting Tips
Group D of the ECL has proven to be one of the most competitive in the entire tournament and all teams have a chance to reach the next stage. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Normally, you would expect to see Cologne as the much stronger team than Slovacko but right now, the two teams are equal in this group and this is their most important match of the entire tournament to date. Slovacko won their last game while Cologne lost the last two matches. We expect action from both sides and at least one goal per side. Cologne definitely have a lot to prove but their defense is quite bad.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
When it comes to these two teams, we definitely expected more from Cologne and significantly less from Slovacko. But the visitors are in terrible form while Slovacko already prove the world that they can handle top opposition. Cologne have not won a game on the road in the tournament and we think that Slovacko will not surrender the three points without a fight. Based on the fact that Cologne have four defeats in their last five games, we think that they may not win here.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-2 Draw
This is a difficult game to predict but since we stopped ourselves on the draw already, here is the correct score result we are willing to bet on. Of course, 1:1 has a higher chance for success but Slovacko already showed that they can score multiple goals per game and they did score two on the road against Cologne too.
Slovacko vs Cologne: Form, Recent Games, and News
Slovacko are one of the top teams in the Czech Republic and finished in 4th place last season, which was a reasonable achievement. The team has a solid defense and an above-average attack, and they showed it in the match against Partizan, when they scored 3 goals. Still, the team is the weakest in the group although they have proven their qualities against top teams and should be proud of their performance this year.
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, they should have been one of the two favorites in this group but they have failed to date and are even unlikely to end in 2nd place.
