RB Leipzig vs FC Cologne – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

RB Leipzig are favourites to record their first win of the new season at FC Cologne’s expense when Die Geißböcke head East on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

RB Leipzig to Win

RB Leipzig somehow dropped points in the campaign’s opening round of fixtures against Stuttgart, though they really should have claimed more than a draw having racking up 28 attempts to their host’s 11. Back at the Red Bull Arena for the first time this term on Saturday, Die Roten Bullen will be confident that a victory is on the cards however, against an FC Cologne side they beat 3-1 at the same venue in February. If RB can find the killer touch this weekend, then a routine victory could be in the offing.

Both Teams to Score

Domenico Tedesco’s RB looked a little at sea defensively in pre-season and they carried their deficiencies into their first competitive test of the campaign at Stuttgart last week. With issues at the back to resolve, a clean sheet on Saturday against FC Cologne seems unlikely, though Leipzig have notched in 18 of their last 20 Bundesliga assignments and they will be difficulty to shut out. Nine of the last ten meetings between RB Leipzig and FC Cologne have produced goals at both ends and we’re tipping Saturday’s fixture to follow suit.
