FC Koln Vs Bayern Munich German Bundesliga Live Online Commentary
FC Koln will need to make some extra effort on Saturday if they want to get any points from Bayern despite playing in front of their own supporters. At the moment they are on a winless spell, having lost 3 times out of their last 4 matches and drawn once. Last weekend The Goats were defeated on the road 3–1 with the hands of RB Leipzig, they are currently occupying 7th position with 33 points haul. If they can manage to win in this fixture they will get a chance of going over Eintracht Frankfurt if they fail to win. Cologne have a few injury concerns here: first choice goalkeeper Timo Horn suffers from a training deficit after an injury spell, while right midfielder Marcel Risse is expected to miss the rest of the season. Midfielders Lehmann and Bittencourt are also both ruled out. Jonas Hector also serves his first ever Bundesliga suspension for his 5th yellow card from last match.
Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti’s side is comfortable on top of the Bundesliga table with 53 points, 5 points above their closest pursuer RB Leipzig in 2nd place. Last weekend Bayern completely demolished Hamburger SV in an 8–0 victory at Allianz Arena and have been on a good run of form. The Bavarians have won 4 of their last 5 matches and are hoping to extend their unbeaten record of form in this fixture and maintain their 5 points lead in the table. Ahead of this match Bayern Munich are without their key central defender Jerome Boateng and are doubtful over Portugese prodigy midfielder Renato Sanches.
