FC Koln vs Bayern Munich

, KO: 19:30 Nov 24, 2023, RheinEnergieStadion
Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich will be aiming to climb to the top of the Bundesliga at least temporarily as they travel to FC Koln for a Friday night fixture. The champions are still unbeaten this season and driven by the prolific Harry Kane, should be too strong for their hosts.

It has been a difficult campaign for FC Koln, who have only picked up one Bundesliga win this season. They have spent much of the season in the bottom three and appear to be set for a lengthy relegation battle this season.

FC Koln appeared to stem the tide of defeats just before the international break as they drew their last two matches. Steffen Baumgart’s men played out 1-1 draws with Augsburg and Bochum prior to the hiatus.

Home form is always pivotal to any relegation battle but FC Koln have lost three of their five matches at RheinEnergieStadion this season. However, they are unbeaten in their last two matches in front of their fans, claiming a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund before the draw with Augsburg.

Bayern Munich are still unbeaten in the Bundesliga this season but are somehow playing second fiddle to an exceptional Bayer Leverkusen side. Thomas Tuchel’s men are two points off the pace and can go top with a win on Friday.

The Champions travel to Koln off the back of a 4-2 victory over Heidenheim in their previous Bundesliga fixture. Harry Kane netted a first half brace as Bayern Munich claimed a fifth successive Bundesliga victory.

Bayern Munich also have a solid record on their travels with four wins and a draw from five away matches this season. While they have been rampant in attack, the defence has not been particularly solid with just one clean sheet in the last four matches in that run.

How the bookies view it

Bayern Munich have been installed as overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 1/4 by bet365 to claim the victory. FC Koln are considered outsiders with a home win valued at 11/1 by Coral while a draw is set at odds of 6/1 by BetVictor.

Head to head

Bayern Munich have a 52-22 advantage with 25 draws from 99 previous matches against FC Koln. The Bavarians were unbeaten in this fixture last season, playing out a 1-1 draw at home before picking up a 2-1 victory at the RheinEnergieStadion.

Players to watch

Much of FC Koln’s attacking g play is foes through Davie Selke, who has three Bundesliga goals this season. The forward was also on target last time out at Bochum and could be worth keeping an eye on at 4/1 by bet365.

Harry Kane appears to have fully settled into life with Bayern Munich as the goals just keep going in. The England striker now has 17 Bundesliga goals and is priced at 11/20 by Unibet to maintain his scoring run on Friday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Bayern Munich have seen over 3.5 goals in all five of their Bundesliga away matches this season and could be set for a similar outcome at 8/11 by William Hill. There have also been a few one-sided results in that run which means a -2 handicap could be considered at 13/8 by Paddy Power.

With Bayern Munich expected to be dominant on Friday, they could be tipped to win both halves at 6/4 with Paddy Power. Harry Kane has a knack for scoring multiple goals and could be backed to grab two or more on Friday at 21/10 with Paddy Power.
