Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to keep pace with the sides above them in the Bundesliga this weekend by picking up a second straight win. However, FC Köln has been a difficult nut to crack in recent weeks, as they have gone four without loss in Germany’s top-flight.
It promises to be an exciting fight to the finish to determine the sides that will be representing the Bundesliga in the Champions League next season. Eintracht Frankfurt is in the middle of that fight, as they currently sit fifth in the Bundesliga standings. They are just one point off RB Leipzig at present, and five off the top of the standings.
Frankfurt has gone five without defeat in the top-flight, but they have been held to three draws over that period. They finally got back in the win column last weekend with a fine showing against Hertha Berlin. Randal Kolo Muani scored twice in that success, while Aurelio Buta also found the net for the German side.
FC Köln is currently in no-man’s land in the Bundesliga standings. They sit eleventh overall, but are just seven clear of the drop zone, and eleven away from the European spots. The next run of games will likely determine where they are competing in the second half of the season.
They come into this game in solid form, as they have gone four without a defeat in the Bundesliga. However, they have been held to three straight draws. The most recent of those was a second straight goalless tie against RB Leipzig. Goals could once again be their biggest issue this weekend.
FC Köln vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head to Head
Köln comes into this fixture having gone three without defeat against Frankfurt. Two of the previous three have ended in 1-1 draws, while four of the last six showdowns have also ended with that same scoreline. However, Köln won this exact fixture last season 1-0.
FC Köln vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
The goals appear to have dried up for Köln coming into this fixture. Therefore, we expect Frankfurt to pick up a second straight victory, as their forward line has been in exceptionally productive form since the World Cup break. Randal Kolo Muani could be a solid goalscorer pick after netting four in his previous two in all competitions.
