Average number of goals is under 2.5.
Stuttgart was so close to record first point in their away match but their effort is ruined in last seconds of the match. They played four away matches so far and they lost all of them. In last match Stuttgart played against Eintracht in Frankfurt. First half was mostly boring but in forty-third minute Eintracht somehow managed to score 1:0. In sixty-first minute Simon Terodde scored equalizer after corner kick 1:1. Three minutes later referee sent off one of Eintracht’s players because of harsh foul. Stuttgart relaxed and they were punished for that in fourth minute of extra time 2:1. That defeat can leave serious impact on their performance and match against FC Koln may be their only chance to raise moral for future matches.
Six losses and one goalless draw is FC Koln’s current achievement. Something is very, very wrong. FC Koln played at home against RB Leipzig in what might be known in future as horned derby and we all expected defeat. Team from Cologne did lose that match but they were better side at least in first forty-five minutes. They attacked and attacked but visitors scored first in thirty-first minute 0:1. In fifty-sixth minute Bittencourt scored but referee denied it because of offside. Punishment came ten minutes before the end 0:2. Two minutes later Yuya Osako scores for final 1:2. That’s second goal of the season for FC Koln. Billy goats play OK football but they seem to be cursed or something because the ball simply don’t want to go in. They are underdogs against Stuttgart but if their attackers start doing what they are paid for than FC Koln can dream of first victory.
