FC Koln Preview – Billy Goats struggling to escape their rut?

The Billy Goats continue their search for a first Bundesliga win of the season on Sunday after failing to register even a point across the opening three rounds. They could count themselves unlucky in the first two of those, winning the xG battle versus Hoffenheim (2-3) and Arminia Bielefeld (1-0) but not the match itself, but could have no complaints with the manner of their defeat in the Rhine derby last time out.

Coming face-to-face with a Borussia Monchengladbach side who had also picked up zero points in two outings, FC Koln were comfortably dispatched in the end, giving up a host of chances (xG: KOL 0.57 – 2.00 GLA) whilst struggling to create anything of note in a 3-1 scoreline. That their ninth league defeat in the last thirteen (D4 L9), in a winless run stretching back to March when edging out relegated Paderborn on the road.

Meanwhile Koln are currently without a Bundesliga home win in seven prior attempts, since inflicting a 3-0 scoreline upon Schalke – the fifth game in a nineteen-game winless sequence for The Royal Blues that is still going strong to this very day. However, their record here against Frankfurt, having won four and lost only once in six previous meetings inside RheinEnergieStadion, should breed encouragement.

Frankfurt Preview – Can Die Adler extend unbeaten start?

Few teams were as volatile and frustrating to follow as Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019-20, who were such a streaky outfit under Adi Hutter. Four or five matches unbeaten would disappear in an instance, replaced instead by a group of imposters who would go a long time before winning again. So it is perhaps best to air on the side of caution when assessing the start made to the new season.

On the fact of it, though, this has been a fine start indeed. Seven points from three games is made all the more impressive when considering who their opponents were. And while a trio of Arminia Bielefeld (1-1), Hertha Berlin (1-3) and Hoffenheim (2-1) may not strike fear into most, consider that the latter two have already this season either beaten Bayern Munich or pushed them mighty close.

Coupled with their strong form towards the end of last season, when registering five wins and a sole defeat in their final eight fixtures, and it doubtless paints a team in a very positive light. Not to mention their outstanding away form of late which has seen them record four wins in the last five said matches – though the only blemish was a 1-1 draw here, at the RheinEnergieStadion, in the penultimate round.

FC Koln Vs Frankfurt Betting Advice

Whereas the home side, FC Koln, remain winless thus far (L3), Eintracht Frankfurt arrive in confident mood following an unbeaten start (W2 D1) which sees them sit level on points with leaders RB Leipzig. It is little wonder, then, that the visitors are considered favourites, although an inspiring record in Cologne, comprising one win in their last thirteen Bundesliga visits, has to be of genuine concern.


FC Koln Vs Eintracht Frankfurt – Key Facts

  • Thirteen Bundesliga games without registering a win for FC Koln (D4 L9), who have suffered three consecutive defeats so far this season.
  • Unbeaten in their last seven Bundesliga games (W5 D2), Eintracht Frankfurt would also claim maximum points in four of their previous five away encounters.
  • Koln may have been unable to win the past two league meetings on home soil (D1 L1) but have lost only once across the previous 13 Bundesliga head-to-heads here (W8 D4 L1).


Last season’s meeting at the RheinEnergieStadion ended all square, following a 1-1 draw, and we could be set for a similar outcome. That is because both teams scoring has become a regular occurrence for both these teams. All but one of Koln’s last 14 Bundesliga games featured goals at both ends, while the same occurred in 12 of the last 14 involving Frankfurt. And home advantage usually bodes well for The Billy Goats.
