Match Preview

RB Leipzig vs FC Cologne

Julian Nagelsmann will have had a sour taste in his mouth over the vacations after his club’s 0 – 0 home draw against FC Köln in their last head-to-head prevented them from maintaining their point-splitting tie with league leaders Bayern Munich, despite Leipzig having an extremely successful year that saw them advance to the Champions League semifinals and the knockout rounds for the second consecutive year.

Amadou Haidara believed he had doubled the advantage of his team, but Timo Horn made two spectacular stops, and the midfielder’s close-range goal was ruled out because Marcel Sabitzer was offside during the buildup. After that, Angelino sprinted through in spectacular fashion but was denied by yet another superb Horn save from extending his remarkable season goal total.

Leipzig struggled to create many clear opportunities in the second half, but Kevin Kampl was particularly wayward from 12 yards after Christopher Nkunku’s selfless move gave the midfielder a chance. In the last seconds of the game, the Horn of Germany denied defender Willi Orban from close range. Horn was still capable of making one more excellent save.

After holding Hertha Berlin to a 0 – 0 tie in January, the Billy Goats will always be grateful that neither Werder Bremen nor Arminia Bielefeld was successful last time out. The Billy Goats and the squad in 14th place played yet another scoreless draw after failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their remaining 16 games.

However, with only 11 points collected at the RheinEnergieStadion out of a potential 48, Köln has the worst home record in the division. They would establish a bad club record for the fewest points scored at home in a season if they lose this weekend.

But the stats change as soon as we start talking about away matches. FC Köln has been consistently doing well playing away matches. They have been able to pick some wins while visiting other teams. This, though, will be tough against RB Leipzig as they have one of the better records when it comes to home matches. 

The gap between fourth and tenth place in the Bundesliga is currently just four points, and with Leipzig trailing visiting Cologne by just one point, this matchup is undoubtedly crucial in the battle for a top-four position.

Before this Bundesliga season, RB Leipzig had only won more than eight home league games once, and there was also the added motivation of overtaking Cologne into the European spots if they won.
