Hertha vs Koln betting predictions, teams information & odds – Bundesliga provided by PicksSoccer Tipsters
Everyone knows that today’s football is getting faster and faster. There is only continuity if success quickly arises. A team can hardly grow anymore, not to mention the handwriting of a coach, which, as is well known, can only appear in a team after a long period of time.
Hertha vs Koln Betting Predictions and Odds
Hertha BSC and 1. FC Köln are good examples of this. The first leg was just five months ago. The former coaches Ante Covic and Achim Beierlorzer are no longer in office. In the meantime, the capitals of Jürgen Klinsmann have worn out another trainer.
Nevertheless, both clubs are on course towards relegation, which did not look like that for a long time (Koln) or in the meantime (Berlin). Hertha is in 13th place in the Bundesliga table. The cushion on the relegation ranks is now nine points. The billy goats are three points less directly behind Hertha.
However, both clubs should not yet feel too safe. Perhaps it is therefore not the right time at the moment when investor Lars Windhorst dreams of an arena with 90,000 seats, although the Olympic Stadium is rarely sold out. By the end of the season, the motto should be rather humble and humble to keep the league under lock and key.
At first glance, it is no easy task to make a profound prediction in the match between Hertha and Koln. Basically, everything seems to be possible in this game. The bookmakers’ odds comparison, however, shows that Berliners are easy favorites, which does not necessarily lead to a bet on a home win between Hertha and Koln.
In any case, the winner of this game takes a big step towards relegation. The Berliners would even say goodbye to the secure midfield and could take a breath after the turbulence surrounding Jürgen Klinsmann in recent weeks.
Hertha – Statistics & current form
Vedad Ibisevic has no longer played a major role at Hertha under Jürgen Klinsmann. That doesn’t look much better under Alexander Nouri at the moment. It is thanks to the captain that Berliners have had a very positive record against Koln in recent years, because the Bosnian scored nine times in seven games for Hertha against Effzeh.
Especially with the current weakness at home, Vedad Ibisevic could be the man who steers the ship in the right direction. The Berliners obviously prefer to kick away this season. Hertha scored 15 of the 26 points in away games. However, eleven points from eleven home games are a more than disappointing home record.
Hertha with home complex
With its career, the Olympic Stadium is probably not a fortress. In the relegation battle, in which Hertha is still in fact, home wins would not be unimportant. From the last four games on the Spree, the Berliners took just two points and scored only one goal. That doesn’t sound as if we absolutely had to use the odds of a home win between Hertha and Koln.
Last weekend, the Herthan team were able to compete in Alexander Nouri’s debut as Paderborn. In the rear, the Berliners struggled to win 2-1. Dedrick Boyata was there with the 1-0. After the equalization, the Paderborn team helped with an own goal to the 2-1 victory of the Berliners.
Nouri thinks Hertha is ready for the Koln game
Though it was scarce in East Westphalia, this success could have been a breast-breaker in every way.
“The atmosphere in the cabin is very good. We are ready for Saturday. We need players to take responsibility. ” – Alexander Nouri
The pressure is now lower and that’s why Alexander Nouri reports a very good atmosphere in the cabin. From this circumstance, the Hertha coach realizes that his team is ready to face Koln.
In terms of staff, it could hardly look any better for the capitals. Only substitute goalkeeper Thomas Kraft should fail after a dog bite. Otherwise, the last struck Niklas Stark is fit again. Marius Wolf could again be an option after the ban has been served. This also applies to Marko Grujic and Per Ciljan Skjelbred.
Probable lineup of Hertha:
↳ Jarstein – Stark, Boyata, Rekik – Pekarik, Darida, Ascacibar, Mittelstädt – Maier – Matheus Cunha, Piatek
↳ Coach: Nouri

Koln – Statistics & current form
Despite all the skeptics, Markus Gisdol has hit the mark as a new coach at 1. FC Köln. The coach, who once saved Hoffenheim and HSV from relegation, is now living up to his reputation as a savior in relegation battle. What comes after that will be shown. So far, he has not really been able to provide evidence of developing a team.
With the billy goats, however, he is exactly the right man at the moment. Markus Gisdol has stabilized the team again, even if his personnel measures were not always popular. The billy goats still don’t get on the track. There have been only one win and one draw in the last eight appearances, but six defeats.
Under Markus Gisdol it is relatively clear what can be expected from Koln. The top teams, Bayern, Leipzig and Dortmund have so far proven too strong. Otherwise there was only one defeat in Berlin at the old forester under the new coach. Now it’s the second time this season in the capital.
In the previous week, the Koln tried to defend themselves against the currently overpowering Bayern. The issue had already been resolved after 12 minutes at the 0: 3 level. The billy goats were then able to make the game a little more open. After a goal from Mark Uth it was 1-4 at the end.
With aggressive duel behavior to success
Markus Gisdol’s match plan for the game in Berlin is ready. The Koln-based company wants to pull the tooth out of Berlin with aggressive duel behavior.
“Hertha often tries to leave the game to the opponent. I want us to be aggressive and duel-oriented. This is our game. ” – Markus Gisdol
He also assumes that his team will have more of a game against Berliners who are once again low. If the plan works, Hertha and Koln might even be able to predict an away win.
The billy goats are expected to compete with the team that looked relatively good against Bayern in the second half. However, central defender Sebastiaan Bornauw will serve a yellow card suspension. Toni Leistner should come into play for this. The two injured Noah Katterbach and Thomas Kessler will also be missing from Koln.
Probable lineup of Koln:
↳ Horn – Ehizibue, Leistner, Czichos, Jakobs – Skhiri, Hector – Draxler, Uth, Kainz – Cordoba
↳ Coach: Gisdol
Last matches from Koln:
⚽️ 16.02.2020 – Koln vs. Bayern 1: 4 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 02.02.2020 – Koln vs. Freiburg 4: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 24.01.2020 – Dortmund vs. Koln 5: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ Jan 18, 2020 – Koln vs. Wolfsburg 3: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ Jan 10, 2020 – Koln vs. Genk 1: 1 (friendly game)
