📏 Form Guide

Cologne
Cologne
LLDLDL

Cologne will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 1-0 Bundesliga 1 losing effort in their last game against VfL Wolfsburg.

In that game, Cologne managed 49% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. At the other end, VfL Wolfsburg got 12 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Josip Brekalo (69') was the scorer for VfL Wolfsburg.

It’s been seldom in recent games that Cologne have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Köln have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 12 goals in the process.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Cologne:

  • are unbeaten in the league by Mainz in their last 2 matches.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches at home.
  • have not won at home in their last 3 matches in the league.

WLDWWD

In their previous game, Mainz drew 1-1 in the Bundesliga 1 tie with Arminia Bielefeld.

In that game, Mainz had 57% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Mainz was Daniel Brosinski (56'). Arminia Bielefeld got 10 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Andreas Voglsammer (76') was the scorer for Arminia Bielefeld.

A run of reliable displays by the Mainz defensive unit has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their past 6 clashes overall. In that period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 6. That trend might not be continued into this next game, of course.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Mainz:

  • haven't beaten Cologne in games played away from home for the previous 10 matches in the league. A very poor run of away results.
  • haven't been beaten by Cologne when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
  • are undefeated in their previous 4 away league matches.

↔️ Head to head

Looking at the statistics for their head to head duels dating back to 20/05/2017, there has been little to separate the clubs with Cologne winning 2 of those games, Mainz 2 and 2 being drawn in normal time.

A total of 14 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 7 from Köln and 7 netted by Mainz. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.33.

The previous league match featuring the two was Bundesliga 1 match day 11 on 12/12/2020 which ended up with the score at Mainz 0-1 Cologne.

In that match, Mainz managed 60% possession and 15 attempts at goal with 4 on target.

At the other end, Cologne got 9 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Elvis Rexhbecaj (55') scored.

The match was refereed by Felix Zwayer.

📰 Team News: Cologne

Cologne manager Markus Gisdol will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.

📰 Team News: Mainz

Thanks to a largely available group, there is only the one fitness problem for the Mainz manager Bo Svensson to contend with. Luca Kilian (Hamstring Injury) won’t be playing here.

💡 Prediction

We’re of the view that Cologne could find themselves struggling to score against this Mainz team who we think might emerge victorious.

Our tip is therefore for a narrow 0-1 winning score for Mainz when all is said and done.

There should be little in it.
