Today's tips Lille vs Sevilla Young Boys vs Villarreal Middlesbrough vs Barnsley Huddersfield vs Birmingham

FC Cologne were made to sweat it out for a draw by Freiburg at the Dreisamstadion. An 89th-minute own goal sealed the draw and the Billy Goats will be cautious against RB Leipzig in their next Bundesliga outing. Die Roten Bullen have lost three of their last four league outings, and their misery was compounded by a 6-3 defeat to Manchester City in midweek.

Cologne to Win

Out of the two, RB Leipzig are the more established outfit. However, last season's runner ups are a depleted outfit and one in transition following the departure of Julien Nagelsmann. Jesse Marsch is taking his time to adapt to his new surroundings and Die Roten Bullen are floundering in Bundesliga as a consequence. Cologne will fancy this situation and look to claim another win over RB Leipzig. The last time they met, the Billy Goats claimed a 2-1 result and we are anticipating a similar conclusion to this weekend meeting between them.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

Three of RB Leipzig's last four matches have concluded with Over 2.5 total goals. A similar tally is read for Cologne across the same period. They have 13 goals between them in this Bundesliga season and we expect the trend to continue as they come face-to-face this Saturday evening. History is also on their side as their last meeting also concluded with three goals on the scoreboard.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The last time RB Leipzig travelled to the Rhine Energie Stadion, they could not stop a floundering Cologne side from getting on the scoreboard. With the Billy Goats in fine goalscoring form, we expect them to get on the scoreboard. We also expect Die Roten Bullen to trouble the scorers given their eight goals in the last four matches.

Match Preview of Cologne vs RB Leipzig

Cologne look to pounce on jaded RB Leipzig

The Billy Goats managed to ensure their survival in the Bundesliga thanks to a relegation play-off win over Holstein Keil. They are not looking back this season, impressing with seven points from four games. There is much to be jubilant about in Cologne ranks as their forwards continue to them on the scoreboard at every time of asking. However, with five first-team players out due to injuries, they will have to rethink their strategy going into this game.

The cherry-picking of talent of RB Leipzig by Bayern Munich is having its impact. Die Roten Bullen have lost four of their six competitive matches this season. Leipzig are struggling under Jesse Marsch and the players look out of sorts. They were humbled in midweek by Manchester City but the fans will take Christopher Nkunku's hattrick in hopes of positive things to come from them.
