*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Bayern Munich performed well to draw 2-2 at Arsenal in the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek, though the Bavarians were humiliated in a 3-2 reverse to Heidenheim last weekend and they will need to bounce back on Saturday.

Cologne have plenty of work to do to secure their Bundesliga survival and their 2-1 win over Bochum last time out strengthened their pursuit of safety. The bookies think the visitors have just a 9.1% chance of winning at the Allianz Arena however, and our football tips have also forecast an afternoon of struggle for Cologne.

Bayern Munich vs Cologne prediction
Serge Gnabry scored a crucial goal in midweek – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Serge Gnabry

Winger Serge Gnabry has had an injury-plagued campaign, though the wide attacker showcased his talent in midweek when he scored in the Champions League against old club Arsenal and the 28-year-old could be worth tracking in the anytime scorer market again on Saturday.

Gnabry should be fresh for the run in

Gnabry has only started four times in the Bundesliga this season, however, with his fitness issues hopefully behind him, the German international could be primed to have a strong finish to the campaign. Gnabry has already lodged four goal contributions in the league this term.
