Germany: Bundesliga – Matchday 4
Match start: 18:00 (GMT+2)
Borussia D is now suffering from injuries, the process of reconstruction and coming of the new coach and understanding of his football views. And in this difficult situation Borussia is going to meet Köln on its field which has demonstrated great progress during last championship. The match is going to be very interesting as despite several problems Borussia is still one of the challengers for a title and Köln has a reputation of strong fighter capable of struggling with grandees.
The situation in the club is so intense that we won’t see Guerrero, Reus, Rode and Schmelzer during the match against Köln. And with great probability Bartra, Schürrle, Durm will join the company. Peter Bosz is dealing well with all his problems and the team has lost only one match in frames of the Champions League to Tottenham (1:3). The number of reserve players is so large that allows not to notice even 4-5 injured football players from the starting line-up and such fresh players as Yarmolenko, Philipp, Daud, Toprak and Toljan are quite capable of joining the starting line-up of the team.
But now Borussia is one of the leaders of Bundesliga and Köln has really lost the start of the season – zero points and the last place in the tournament bracket. The Billy Goats have good football players and management that spare no expenses on transfers (Córdoba, Horn, Queiroz and Meré. Experienced Austrian coach of Köln Peter Stoeger is working with this team since 2013 and is able to overcome any crisis. But as for today it is necessary to say that the club is playing terribly.
Borussia has lost to Tottenham (1:3) in frames of the Champions League and demonstrated good level of football in which had happened also some mistakes made by the referees. In the match against Köln the club from Dortmund needs only to show its ordinary football and Borussia will surely win.
Our tip: Borussia D to win with the handicap (-1.5) 1.75.
We can count on interesting and bright football. The attack of Borussia is as perfect as it was earlier and the defense of Köln is not so perfect.
Our tip: Total Over (3.0) 1.65
