Mainz vs FC Köln Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 21.10.2022
Betting TipKöln to Win
It has been a fine start to the Bundesliga season by FC Köln, and they will be looking to continue that momentum on Friday evening when they take on Mainz away from home. Both sides were winners in their previous outings in the league.
There is a very open feel to the Bundesliga this season, with a number of sides looking set to punch above their weight. That unpredictability is evident from the current standings, as FC Köln could move into the top four with a victory on the road this weekend. The German side has won four of their opening ten league fixtures, and they have suffered just two defeats.
Köln has picked up wins in two of their previous four fixtures, which includes a recent success against Augsburg last weekend. Despite going 1-0 down, they hit back excellently in the second half. Steffen Tigges scored twice in the victory, while the other goal was netted by Denis Huseinbasic after 61 minutes. If they continue to show that form, there’s no reason why they couldn’t knock on the door of the Champions League places this season.
Mainz come into this fixture sitting in the bottom half of the standings. However, they have also won four of the ten games that they have played, and victory on Friday could lift them up to fourth in the standings. Mainz have had issues scoring goals in recent weeks, and that is evident from the fact that they have scored just eleven this term.
However, they ended a run of four without a victory in their previous fixture, as they landed a win against Werder Bremen on the road. Marcus Ingvartsen opened the scoring in that game, before a second goal was scored by Lee Jae-Sung in the second half.
Mainz vs FC Köln Head to Head
FC Köln has picked up two victories from the previous five matches that they have played against Mainz in the Bundesliga. They won away from home in the 2020-21 season, and were held to a draw in the previous fixture between the sides.
Mainz vs FC Köln Prediction
FC Köln has been in excellent form throughout this season, and they look set to be a dark horse for a European spot. We could see them moving into the top four places in the Bundesliga on Friday evening with a 2-0 victory on the road against Mainz.
