Freiburg will host Koln in 20th round of German Bundesliga and will have a hard task to overcome decent guests. They were defeated in previous round against Gladbach away from home with convincing result, before that achieved important victory over Hertha while in first official match in this year failed to avoid defeat against leaders Bayern Munich. However they can be satisfied with their performances, currently occupies 10th spot and since they managed to return into Bundesliga in this season that are quit good results.
In previous meeting with Koln they were defeated on the road with convincing result, now will be seeking for a revenge and have a chance for that, in case of victory they would climb up to 8th spot and would be in race even for spot Europa league, their defense needs improving, in previous 149 rounds conceded 33 goals and for higher positions must show much better skills in defense, however i believe that here can win and collect all three points. Defenders Kempf (0/0), Stenzel (4/0) and midfielder Siero (0/0) will all miss this match due to injuries.
Koln on the other hand also had a pretty good season, they are at great 7th spot at victory tonight would lead them at 6th spot at least, most recently they were eliminated from German Cup by Hamburger and now are participating only in league. Guests are in decent shape, before that last defeat they achieved two victories, over Wolfsburg with narrow result and really convincing one over bottom placed Darmstadt, in last nine games they suffered only that one last defeat and now must show some pretty good skills to achieve another positive result.
Previous campaign they ended at the middle of the table, now it seems that can achieve even better results, off course if continue with good performances, they were especially good in defense and with 16 goals conceded have one of the best defenses in league. All their defeats in this campaign were away from home, in league were defeated only three times, now it will be hard but guests aren't without chances and for sure can earn points today. Goalkeeper Horn (9/0), midfielders Lehmann (11/0), Risse (13/2) and forward Guirassy (5/0) are all injured and will remain sidelined for this game, forward Runews (13/3) is having issues with minor injury and is in doubt while defender Hector (19/0) and midfielder Bittencourt (8/1) both should b ready for the game.
Interesting duel for sure, both teams achieved decent results in this season, hosts are slight favorites but Koln seems pretty confident despite that last defeat and elimination from Cup, somehow i believe that these two sides will divide points today.
