Cologne Prediction – Can Cologne lift out of relegation zone?

If they’re to do so, Cologne will need to buck the recent trend which has seen them suffer back-to-back defeats to Mainz 3-1 and Fortuna Dusseldorf, and although both of these losses were incurred away from home, they still face a tough task in getting something upon their return to their RheinEnergieStadion on Friday night.

With just 1 win out of their first 4 matches on home turf so far in this season’s Bundesliga, Cologne face an uphill task against Hoffenheim with only a 3-0 win over Paderborn to show for their efforts within a poor home record of 1-0-3 4/8 which also includes defeats to Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Hertha Berlin.

Cologne have collected just 2 wins to date in this new Bundesliga campaign and it looks like the hosts will need to be gearing up for what could prove to be a very long and tough season as they attempt to escape relegation.

The hosts have registered just 4 wins out of their last 21 home matches in the German top flight while recent history also appears to be against Cologne as they’ve lost 3 of the last 4 encounters against Hoffenheim.

Hoffenheim Prediction – Can Hoffenheim soar up table?

9th placed mid-table outfit, Hoffenheim, could jump as high as 2nd place in the Bundesliga with all three points at Cologne on Friday night and the visitors will no doubt be eager to make the most of a potential early jump on their rivals prior to this weekend’s German top flight action.

Hoffenheim bring a strong 5-match winning streak into this clash having recorded Bundesliga wins over Bayern Munich, Schalke 04, Hertha Berlin and Paderborn as well as a DFP cup win against Duisburg, so they’ll be in confident mood ahead of their trip to Cologne.

After an ordinary start to the new Bundesliga season which saw Hoffenheim pick up just 1 win out of their first 6 matches overall in the top flight, the visitors seem to have settled down and results have also improved on their travels too.

Hoffenheim possess a reasonable looking away record which stands at 2-2-1 6/5 which includes a 4-match unbeaten run on the road with draws at Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg as well as back-to-back wins at Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin.
