13th hosts ninth in the Bundesliga on Saturday when Cologne and Werder Bremen resume their domestic campaigns against each other. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Cologne to Win

Only two clubs have left the RheinEnergieStadion with maximum points this season and Cologne will be determined to make full use of home advantage again when they resume their Bundesliga campaign against Werder Bremen on Saturday. Bremen lost back-to-back away assignments just before the break and their vulnerability on the road could be a factor in determining the outcome of Saturday’s game. With the energy of the home crowd to harness, we’re siding with Cologne here for our first prediction.

Both Teams to Score

Steffen Baumgart’s Cologne have been a tough nut to crack on their own patch this season, though clean sheets at the RheinEnergieStadion have been in short supply. Indeed, both teams to score has been a winning bet in 71% of their Bundesliga fixtures there since August and a stake on the same market appeals at the prices on offer this weekend. BTTS has also landed in five of Werder’s seven away games in the German top tier, so bettors have plenty to chew on here.
