Soccer News – BayernMunich-Koln
BayernMunich hosts Koln at the Allianz Arena in a match from the fifth round of the Bundesliga. Just few days after their impressive display in the Champions League against Crvena Zvezda, the Bavarians are ready to come back on the winning road in the Bundesliga as well.
During the week Bayern showed their strength in their first Champions League game for the season. Niko Kovac’ boys hosted Crvena Zvezda at home and offered a pretty good display to the fans, winning the game with 3-0. Kingsley Coman opened the score for Bayern during the first half, while Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller finished the visitors.
Bayern Munich will seek the three points at any cost against Koln after the draw against RB Leipzig in the previous round. At this moment the champions are fourth in the Bundesliga standings with 8 points won, but just two points behind the current leader RB Leipzig.
Against Crvena Zvezda the manager Niko Kovac put Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller on the bench, picking the new signings Phillippe Coutinho and Ivan Perisic. Let’s see what Kovac will decide for the next Bundesliga game.
Koln have won just three points in their first four games in the league since their promotion to the Bundesliga. The Billy Goats achieved a win during the visit to Freiburg in the third round, but in other three games they played they suffered defeats.
This happened in the previous round against Borussia M’gladbach, too. The match at RheinEnergieStadion finished with a 0-1 win for the visitors, who took the three points with a winning goal from Alassane Plea in the first half.
We have no doubts that Bayern Munich will offer us a show against Koln on Saturday. The German champion played very well in the Champions League during the week, so we expect to see them replicate this form in the Bundesliga as well.
