Dortmund to win over FC Köln with more than a goal

Borussia Dortmund meets FC Köln on Westfalenstadion in the match from the 25th round of the Bundesliga. The hosts in this match are in series of five games without a loss, as they achieved four consecutive wins over Freiburg with 0-3, Mainz 05 with 4-2, Stuttgart with 2-3 and Schalke 04 with 3-0.. They also made a goalless draw against Hamburger.

Borussia, which now is in one of the worst seasons for many years, slowly is getting better, which came right on time as some people even started to talk about relegation of the team. Some several consecutive strong games of Jurgen Klopp’s players lifted them to tenth position. The hosts also play in the Champions League where they played much better than in the championship and now has the opportunity to play and probably eliminate Juventus in the quarter-finals.

However, they have some problems with key players missing. Probably Marco Reus will not recover for the match against Köln, but on his place is possible to appear Shinji Kagawa. In attack Klopp will rely on Ciro Immobile, while behind him will most probably play Henrikh Mkhitaryan. On the right wing we will see Aubameyang, who is in great shape in the last few matches.

“The Goats” are one point behind their opponents and occupies the 11th position with a total of 28 points. The guests have one win in their last 6 matches, which came over Eintracht Frankfurt. They also recorded three draws against Stuttgart, Hannover and Paderborn and 2 losses from Monchengladbach and the champions Bayern Munich.

The match in the first half of the season ended with a victory for Köln, when they broke a series of 8 consecutive wins for Dortmund in the championship against this opponent. Despite the miss of Reus and the match in the Champions League three days later, I expect a home win in this match for Dortmund with handicap (-1).

Bet365 and Sportingbet offer odds of 2.00 for such bet. The odds for a win for Dortmund is 1.30, 5.25 is the odds for a draw and 9.50 for a victory for the guests in this match.

Prediction: a Home win with Handicap (-1)
