Bochum vs FC Cologne – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

FC Cologne have lost just once in the Bundesliga this season ahead of their tussle with bottom club Bochum on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

FC Cologne Draw no Bet

Rock bottom Bochum have endured a horrendous start to the new Bundesliga campaign and they look bereft of confidence after a run of six straight defeats. In contrast, Cologne have only lost once so far and they should have enough quality to see off their sinking hosts on Sunday. A word of caution however – Cologne have twice dropped points in league games directly after playing in Europe, and having just played Slovacko in the Europa Conference League, it could be worth siding with them in the draw no bet stakes.

Over 1.5 FC Cologne Goals

Unsurprisingly, Bochum’s defensive record is as rancid as their early results and they have shipped a whopping 18 goals in just six Bundesliga assignments since the summer. Bochum have conceded at least two goals in five of their six top flight tests and on Sunday they face a Cologne side that notched twice against them in each of the teams’ encounters last term. With Bochum in disarray, Cologne appear backable at close to evens to net over 1.5 times again this weekend.
