Koln vs Bayern: prediction for the Bundesliga match
For the most recent time Koln recorded a victory over Bayern more than ten years ago, but will the favourite be victorious on January 15? Or should we expect a sensation? The answer is in our prediction.
Koln are having a great season - Steffen Baumgart's team is currently fighting for the Champions League spot. The Billy Goats are currently at the 6th spot of the standings with 28 points, only two points away from the 4th placed Freiburg - they can overcome this deficit in case of a victory today.

Bayern confirmed the status of the main title contender in the first round of the season and left for winter break as the comfortable leader of Bundesliga. But in the first match of a new year Julian Nagelsmann's team suffered an unexpected defeat, losing to Borussia Monchengladbach (1:2) at home. Now Borussia Dortmund is only six points away from Bayern.
Bayern recorded two out of seven most recent away victories over Koln with that score
In each of two most recent away matches Bayern scored in both halves
In each of two most recent head-to-head matches Koln scored in the second half
Bayern slipped-up in the previous round and let Borussia Dortmund to get closer to the top spot, now the handicap is only six points. Bavarians will surely try to avoid the second mistake, so they will have no problems with motivation today - Koln is a very comfortable opponent for Bayern. There is a significant difference in class between the opposing teams, so we are expecting a confident victory from the favourite.

Bayern has the most efficient offensive line in Bundesliga, so they will try to get advantage out of it today, hosts won't have many chances to keep a clean sheet. But Koln also score goals regularly in home matches against Bayern and the Billy Goats are in a good form now. We are expecting a goal exchange.
Our second bet is on both teams to score
