Cologne Prediction – Can Cologne stem flow of defeats?

Sunday evening’s hosts, Cologne, currently occupy third from bottom and the relegation play-off spot in the German top flight having suffered 4 defeats from their first 5 matches of this new German Bundesliga season.

Cologne’s one highlight from these early stages of the new domestic top flight season was a 2-1 win away from home at Freiburg, but otherwise it’s been a dismal start for the hosts have they’ve already suffered 4 defeats to date.

Losses to Wolfsburg, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Bayern Munich in an admittedly tough early fixture schedule has left Cologne in the lower reaches of the Bundesliga, and they need to turn things around quickly at home if they’re to avoid a difficult relegation fight later this season.

Cologne have lost their last 3 home matches on the trot and have managed to record just 1 win out of their last 10 matches at their RheinEnergieStadio, so all three points in this encounter are far from guaranteed.

Hertha Berlin Prediction – Can Hertha Berlin record back-to-back wins?

Hertha Berlin ended a miserable run of 4 matches last time out in the Bundesliga when they recorded a much-needed 2-1 home win against Paderborn and the visitors will be aiming to make it back-to-back wins in the German top flight when they make their way to Cologne on Sunday.

The visitors had made a slow start to their new Bundesliga campaign as they’d suffered 3 defeats out of their first 4 matches of the season with losses to Wolfsburg, Schalke and Mainz and having started the season with just a point in a 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich, they’d earned just 1 point from the first possible 12 on offer.

However, the recent win against Paderborn will give the visitors that they can get a result away from home at Cologne in this clash and therefore avoid a third consecutive defeat on the road. In addition, Hertha Berlin have won 5 of the last 7 meetings against Cologne and they’ll fancy their chances of continuing their dominance over their hosts this Sunday.

  • Cologne have won just 1 of their last 10 matches at home in the Bundesliga
