Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Koln will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Mainz when they host Bayer Leverkusen at their RheinEnergieStadion. The Billy Goats are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the midweek clash. Midfielder Ondrej Duda is banned for the hosts, while both Czichos and Kainz are sidelined with injuries.
Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, aim to stay in the race for the Bundesliga title, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Wednesday’s clash. However, away win should not be considered as Bayer failed to beat Koln at RheinEnergieStadion in the previous three meetings between the two clubs in the German top flight. Leverkusen midfielder Demirbay has been tested positive for coronavirus, while the likes of Aranguiz, Arias, Bender, Palacios, and Paulinho are all likely to miss the game through injuries.
