Cologne vs Borussia Dortmund – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score (8/15)

  • Eight of the last ten meetings between these clubs have featured goals from both teams.
  • Both teams also managed to notch in six of Dortmund’s last seven Bundesliga fixtures.

Dortmund are favourites to beat second-from-bottom Cologne on Saturday, however, the visitors have been shaky defensively this season and they could concede again. BTTS landed in 80% of the last ten encounters between the sides and our primary Cologne vs Borussia Dortmund prediction anticipates more of the same this weekend.

Player to Watch – Jadon Sancho

English winger Jadon Sancho is back at Dortmund for a second spell following a turbulent time at Manchester United and the 23-year-old marked his return with an assist off the bench against Darmstadt last week. Sancho’s impact as a sub might earn him the nod from the start against Cologne on Saturday.
