Koln v RB Leipzig Betting Tips: Can Leipzig keep pace in top four race?

| 01.06.2020

After watching all their top four rivals do the business over the weekend it falls to RB Leipzig to sign off gameweek 29 with a victory.

Koln have had a solid return to the Bundesliga this season but aren’t out of the woods yet and will need at least one more win to assure safety.

We’ve got our tactics book out with team news, match odds and more ahead of this clash in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Match Odds

RB Leipzig are the favourites for victory at 8/15 and do have the-third best away record with eight wins in 14 games this season.

But no side has drawn more games than Die Roten Bullen (10) in the German top flight this season and we go 7/2 for another one tonight.

Koln have picked up 21 points on home turf this season and are 21/5 to win.

There may be a few goals in this one, Both teams to score is at 4/9. Over 3.5 goals is 20/23.

Talking Tactics

RB Leipzig will be without key man Youssef Poulsen for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury. That means Patrik Schick will continue to lead the line for RB, alongside Timo Werner.

Marcel Halstenberg red card means Angelino may come back in at left back. But gaffer Julian Nagelsmann could shuffle his pack after the draw against Hertha Berlin, with Ademola Lookman and Emil Forsberg waiting in the wings.

As for the home side, Markus Gisdol will be hoping for some renewed vigour from his team after a poor restart.

If the Billy Goats can get the spine of their team, keeper Timo Horn, captain Jonas Hector and striker Jhon Cordoba, on the field together they look a far better outfit.

They will be without both Sebastiaan Bornauw and Marcel Risse tonight – but a change might do them good.

Goalscorer odds

Timo Werner is the favourite at 2/3 to notch anytime, while assist maestro Christopher Nkunku is 10/3 to get on the scoresheet.

Spurs’ slayer Marcel Sabitzer is 16/5 to score first, while Koln’s Mark Uth is 22/1 to score 2 or more. Cordoba ranks at 13/2 to break the deadlock.
