Bayern Munich – Koln
Bayern Munich hosts Koln at the Allianz Arena in a match from the Bundesliga’s 17th round. We will offer you a preview for this game. Let’s get to work!
Bayern Munich are leaders in the Bundesliga with 35 point won so far. The Bavarians made a mistake in their first game since the winter break, though. Julian Nagelsmann’s team paid a visit to RB Leipzig, but only got a point after a 1-1 draw. Eric Choupo-Moting opened the score for Bayern, but in the second half Leipzig equalised.
Against Leipzig Bayern Munich played without one of their best players – Sadio Mane. The former Liverpool star is still recovering from an injury. In his absence, Choupo-Moting started in attack supported by Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala. Now Nagelsmann could make some rotations and use Thomas Muller and Kingsley Coman – both of them started from the bench against the Red Bulls.
Bayern’s new signing Daley Blind could debut against Koln. The Dutch international was signed from Ajax, but he didn’t play against Leipzig. Now we could have such an opportunity.
Just a few days ago, Koln made the most impressive performance of the 16th round in the Bundesliga. The Billy Goats faced Werder Bremen at home and scored seven times for a historical 7-1 win. It was Koln’s best win for the season and one of the most impressive in the recent years.
Two Koln players scored braces against Werder – Ellyes Skhiri and Steffen Tigges. Maina and Huseinbasic scored as well for the hosts.
It’s going to be an interesting game between Bayern Munich and Koln in the Bavarian capital. The champions are always favorites, but Koln scored seven games in their last match – they should not be underestimated. Now facing Bayern in Munich is going to be a true test for their true capabilities. We can’t wait to watch!
