Borussia Dortmund vs Koln: prediction for the Bundesliga match
After a draw in Ruhr derby, Borussia Dortmund will host struggling Koln for the Bundesliga clash. Will the Bumblebees get an easy victory on March 18? The answer is in our prediction.
Borussia drew to Schalke (2:2) in the most recent match, dropping points for the first time in 2023. Edin Terzic's men played better than the opponent, but failed to hold on to the lead. Team's winning streak is over, now's the time to start a new one. The Bumblebees are only two points away from the first place, so players will be motivated for the upcoming game. Emre Can received his fifth yellow card of the season in the Ruhr derby, so he will have to miss the upcoming game.
Koln are still unable to find their game after the winter break, team is losing to everyone. Visitors were unable to find a victory in any of four latest matches. Steffen Baumgart's men failed to score a single goal in these games, so things are not looking bright ahead of the Dortmund trip. The Billy Goats are still seven points ahead of the relegation zone.
