On Saturday, the 21st of September from 2:30 pm UK time, Allianz Arena will host the match between Bayern Munich and FC Koln with the hosts as heavy favourites.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Cologne Budesliga

Bayern Munich won the last 7 consecutive Bundesliga titles and are the unquestionable favourites to win the 2019-2020 title as well. They didn’t start off great this season with a surprising draw at home against Hertha Berlin 2-2.

Bayern won its next two matches, beating Schalke 3-0 away from home and demolishing Mainz 6-1 at home.

In their first three matches of the season, they have scored an impressive 11 goals which highlight how efficient their attacking style is. The team’s star player, Robert Lewandowski scored in every game this season and he also scored the team’s first 5 goals, with a double against Hertha and a hat trick against Schalke.

Ahead of the clash with FC Koln, Bayern will play away at RB Leipzig followed by their debut in the Champions’ League group stage at home against Crvena Zvezda on Wednesday, September 18th.

FC Koln

FC Cologne

FC Koln are newly promoted having won the Bundesliga 2 league where they only spent one year after they relegated from the Bundesliga in the 2017-2018 season.

After the first three matches in the Bundesliga, FC Koln is 14th place with 2 losses and 1 win. Their only win came in the last match and it was away 2-1 against Freiburg. An impressive win that came in extra time, considering that Freiburg had won its first two matches up to then.

FC Koln lost its first match away at Wolfsburg 1-2 and at home 1-3 against Borussia Dortmund. It is worth noting that win or lose, they have scored in all their matches up to now.

Before facing Bayern, FC Koln will host Monchendlabach at home on Saturday, September 14th.

What to Expect From This Game

Bayern is a scoring machine but also don’t have the best defence and have not been able to keep a clean sheet at home this season. FC Koln has scored in all their matches this season, and it is likely they will score against Bayern as well.

Both teams to score, Bayern to win by 2 or 3 goals, and at least a goal scored in the first half are some realistic expectations from this game.
