Koln Preview – Can Köln extend dominance over visitors?

After finishing 14th and 16th in the Bundesliga following their promotion in 2019, Steffen Baumgart’s first season at the helm of Koln can be described as a monumental success. The Billy Goats will now test their mettle in Europe after finishing 7th in the Bundesliga last season and will be keen to make a positive start on Sunday.

Koln’s form at home has been pretty steady as the hosts have suffered just four defeats in their last 18 matches at their RheinEnergieStadion, while Koln have also won each of the previous three meetings against Schalke as well.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Schalke Preview – Can Schalke make winning return?

Promotion from the 2 Bundesliga at the end of last season confirmed Schalke’s return to the German top flight but they face a tough opening game of the season away to last season’s 7th placed Koln whom they’ve lost on the last three occasions but they’ll be hoping their away form helps them out here.

Schalke have lost just one of their last 12 away games in all competitions but the visitors know they need to make a good start to their campaign on Sunday afternoon as the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach, Wolfsburg and Union Berlin are waiting in the wings for the newcomers in the next few matches.
