Opposites collide on Sunday evening when 16th-placed Koln host Union Berlin in 5th as the pair return to Bundesliga action after the latest international break.

The visitors are unbeaten in seven matches and find themselves within touching distance of the Champions League places already, while Koln’s wait for a post-lockdown victory continues (17 matches).

They’re at completely different ends of an unpredictable spectrum in Germany’s top-flight, adding to the intrigue surrounding this encounter on paper. Can either side prevail? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

FC Koln vs Union Berlin Betting Tips

Koln were eight minutes away from their first Bundesliga win since March 6 against now-relegated side Paderborn.

Sebastiaan Bornauw, who made his Belgium debut last month, was penalised for a handball from sub Tahith Chong’s cross. Leonardo Bittencourt calmly converted from twelve yards: Koln have now remarkably conceded five penalties already this term.

They’ll be ruing their lack of luck but failed to turn draws into victories, while suffering slender defeats too against Hoffenheim and Arminia Bielefeld among others.

Unlike Union, they hosted 2. Bundesliga side VfL Bochum in a friendly last Thursday to maintain players’ match sharpness. Somewhat unsurprisingly, they lost 3-1 with a much-changed side fielded by head coach Markus Gisdol.

Unable to banish their losing scent there, Union Berlin players will be licking their lips in anticipation for this weekend’s clash. Urs Fischer won’t allow them to underestimate their hosts. With players like Marvin Friedrich and summer signing Max Kruse in such inspired form though, it’s hard to see anything besides yet another Koln defeat.

FC Koln vs Union Berlin Correct Score Predictions

Interestingly, these two sides are finely poised as far as their H2H is concerned (four wins each, one draw) – but Union have won three successive competitive meetings. They’re enjoying significantly better form and as such, will back themselves to continue their impressive start to the campaign in a winnable encounter.
