Bayern Munich vs Cologne Preview and Prediction 2021

Bayern Munich vs Cologne predictions for Saturday’s Bundesliga clash at the Allianz Arena. Can Bayern Munich respond after two disappointing results at home to Cologne? Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Bayern Munich have kept only two clean sheets in ten home league games this season

Both teams have scored in each of Bayern’s last seven home league matches

Cologne have scored in defeat to Bayern in three of their last four meetings

Free-scoring Bayern can crush Cologne

It was normal service resumed for Bayern Munich as they ran riot in a 4-1 stroll at Lazio in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie on Tuesday.

Injuries have not been kind to Bayern, who could name only five outfield players on their bench in Rome, and as a result domestic performances have been way below the levels we have become to expect.

Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Douglas Costa and Benjamin Pavard are among those out for Hansi Flick and that offers some hope for Cologne, who have recorded league wins at Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach this season.

The visitors are set-up to counter-attack and they should get some joy against Bayern’s high-defensive line.

The Munich giants are two points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, but they have shipped 31 goals in 22 league games and are on a two-game winless run in the league. A thrilling 3-3 draw at home to Arminia Bielfeld was followed by a 2-1 loss in Frankfurt.

Flick’s side have managed only two clean sheets in ten home league games this season, with both teams scoring in each of their last seven fixtures at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern, who have racked up 62 goals in just 22 league games, should have the firepower to claim all three points, but Cologne can notch a consolation.

The visitors have suffered back-to-back league losses and while another upset may follow, they have scored in defeat to Bayern in three of their last four meetings.

We predict Bayern to win 4-1 – two of their last five wins were by that scoreline and they crushed Cologne by that margin in one of last season’s rivalries.
