Koln – Borussia Dortmund
The newcomers Koln host the title contenders Borussia Dortmund in a first game from the second round of the Bundesliga. Allow us to take a look at this clash at the RheinEnergieStadion in Koln in our football tips tonight.
Koln returned to the Bundesliga once again, but they started the season with a defeat. The Billy Goats visited Wolfsburg in the first round and suffered a 1-2 loss. Simon Terodde scored for the visitors in the last minutes of the game, but before this the Wolves have scored twice thanks to Max Arnold and Wout Weghorst.
In Koln everyone is aware that it’s going to be a difficult season and surviving is going to be the main goal. But in order to achieve this goal, the Billy Goats have to win as much points as possible at home.
Borussia Dortmund on the other hand kicked off their Bundesliga season with a win. Lucien Favre’s boys hosted Augsburt at home and achieved a dominant 5-1 win at the Signal-Iduna-Park.
The visitors opened the score with a goal from Florian Niederlechner in the first minute, but this didn’t scare the hosts. Dortmund managed to equalise just two minutes later when Paco Alcacer scored his first goal for the season.
Until the end of the game Alcacer scored once more, while Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus and Julian Brandt also scored their first Bundesliga goals for the season.
Last season Borussia Dortmund were competing for the title, but they got a little bit behind Bayern Munich at the end. Now the goal is to reach the end of the road and win the title again.
These are our football tips tonight for the Bundesliga fixture between Koln and Borussia Dortmund on Friday. The visitors are the favourites here, but let’s see what Koln can do in their first home game for the campaign.
