Predictions and Tips
- MoneyLine Pick: Koeln Will Win
- Over Under Pick: The Total Will Go Over 2.5
- Computer Predicted Score: 1-3
Cologne started the season under the leadership of Achim Beierlorzer. But everything went so far that if he was not fired, the team would go to the Bundesliga. Today the The Billy Goats are led by Markus Gisdol, and their ex-coach works in Mainz.
Under Gisdol, the team has an amazing football game. In the previous 10 games only 2 losses were recorded (from Bayern and Borussia Dortmund), with 8 wins. Directly in the 3-rd rounds Cologne won 3 Victoria (over Hertha, Schalke and Paderborn).
The team turned from a challenger to a middle placed with claims to the European Cups. They are on the 10th place, and on the balance 32 points. The gap from the 7th position, which will allow playing in Europe League qualification, is only 5 points.
A series of 8 wins in 10 games has also affected the team’s performance in the home arena. In 12 games 6 victories were recorded, with one draw and 5 losses. In addition, in 9 consecutive home games the The Billy Goats have already scored an individual total of more than 0.5.
1. FSV Mainz 05
Mainz is far away from his future opponent’s success. But to be fair, I’ll note that lately the team looks very decent, as for a fighter for survival. In 5 previous matches only 1 loss was recorded, with 2 victories and 2 world outcomes. The goals were scored and conceded during this period – 6.
Today the Carnival Club are in the 15th position in the tournament table. They have 26 points on the score. The gap from the zone of departure counts 4 points.
One of the main problems of the the 05ers this season is the problem with defense. In 25 rounds they conceded 53 goals (with 34 scores). On average, their keeper concedes about 2 goals per round. The team had only 3 dry matches in the current draw of the Bundesliga.
Mainz played 12 away games and won only 4 of them, with 8 defeats. The difference between scored and missed goals is 19:3 (no one misses more at away games). By the way, the the 05ers remain the only team that has not yet departed from the world on the road.

1. FC Koeln vs 1. FSV Mainz 05 Prediction
Mainz is in good shape, but Cologne is in even better condition. Gisdol’s players also have their own field factor on their side. We don’t forget that the Billy Goats on their own field are historically good against the 05ers.
I think we have every chance to witness the next victory of the home team. They probably want to take revenge on the opponents for the result in the first round match.
Mainz has a weak defense (although now it has added a little). Koeln have been attacking very powerfully lately.
- We predict Koeln to win
