FC Koln vs 1. FSV Mainz 05 Prediction & Betting tips
The 34th and thus the final day of this 53rd league season is coming. This means that all matches start on Saturday at 3:30 pm. The Domstadters from Cologne receive the first FSV Mainz 05 in front of their own backdrop. While for the “Effzeh” it is a real end game, the Mainzer only goes for the golden pineapple.
FC Koln :
On the previous day, the Stöger men went to the away game at the Werkself. The Leverkusener had to score points and took the command right from the start, came in a hectic initial phase equal to several good goal opportunities, the fantastic final man of the Cologne, Timo Horn, but all parried. As they did better with the goal, the goat bobs showed their way through their first notable opportunity in 14 minutes by Jojic in the lead and saved this lead also in the break.
Shortly after the side change, Klünter’s chances of reaching the next goal were even 2: 2, but the men around coach Peter Stöger were too passive, did little more for the offensive and conceded in the 60th minute the 1: 2 match. After that, it was a matter of time before the Werkself made the difference, as a game developed on a goal, in which goalkeeper Timo Horn thwarted chances, but in the 70th minute he had to be defeated. Edeljoker Pohjanpalo got the 2: 2 and thus the final, which meant the class salary for Bayer.
Although the dream of Europe continues to live for Cologne, the initial situation is not quite as good. At the moment, they have the seventh place in the table, have to beat their next opponent Mainz, at the same time to hope for a lapsing of the competitors or to get the BVB the DFB trophy, because then the seventh place for the European business would be enough.
Coach Peter Stöger could once again rely on the same team as in the previous round of Leverkusen and the spectacular match against SV Werder Bremen.
Horn – Klünter, Sörensen, Subotic, Heintz – M. Lehmann – Jojic, J. Hector – Zoller, Bittencourt – Modeste
1. FSV Mainz 05 :
“Mainz remains 1” was to be read in large letters on the specially made T-shirts, which were distributed to the team after the encounter with Eintracht Frankfurt to the players. The crazy game, in which all the participants of the 05s were outgrowing themselves and turned a 2-2 home deficit into a 4: 2 home win and turned the Mainz Stadium into a madhouse, meant at the same time the class salary.
Since the encounter of the Gladbacher foals at VfL Wolfsburg was interrupted because of heavy rainfall, they had to wait for the final whistle for 30 minutes, until this result was finally fixed and afterwards there was no hold. The Mainz fans were more than happy with their fans and will play first-class games again next season. On the final day, they have to go to 1. FC Köln and can play there freely, because it is for the men around coach Schmidt nothing more.
It remains to be seen, which Elf coach Martin Schmidt to the field, because it may well be that he has young players or those who have little use, a chance to show. De Blasis will not be able to help his team on the fifth yellow card.
Huth – Donati, Bell, Balogun, Brosinski – Gbamin, F. Frei – Ozunali, Bojan, Muto – Cordoba
