Fortuna Koln vs Aalen Prediction & Betting tips
The 30th round of the 3rd league will open on Friday evening with the duel between SC Fortuna Köln and VfR Aalen. The Cologne have unbeaten in five league games and brought with this series two wins and three draws. Thus, the Fortuna could get a little air in the relegation battle. After 29 games, the club is out of the Cologne Südstadt with 35 points on the 14th place in the league. The advantage over the first relegation rank is four points. Of course, at home against the bottom of the table coach Tomasz Kaczmarek wants to continue collecting points against the relegation.
The VfR Aalen was able to provide with the 3-0 away win in promotion candidate KSC on Matchday 28 for a big surprise. But with a 1-1 at home against FSV Zwickau on the following match day, the men of the Ostalb could not gild their away three. Thus, the VfR still holds the red lantern in the 3rd league. The distance to the saving shore is seven points. The rescue becomes less and less likely. In the basement duel at the Cologne Fortuna the men of coach Rico Schmitt have to score further, if one still wants to hope for the league. At the duel Fortuna Cologne vs.. Aalen speak the quotas but for the hosts. The betting base does not want to commit itself to a game outcome in their preview and sets against Fortuna Cologne.
Last Friday, for the Fortuna from Cologne for the opening match of the 29th game day was the game at Kriselnden KFC Uerdingen. The Fortunen had to get along because of a flu epidemic without some players. In a water battle a controlled football match was hardly possible. From the early lead of the hosts, the team of coach Tomasz Kaczmarek did not shock and made up a little later. In the end, both teams had to settle for one point. However, there was bitter news for the Cologne club: midfielder Maik Kegel was seriously injured in the game and misses out for the remainder of the season with a cross and inside ligament injury. Hope makes Fortuna the series of five games without defeat.
Now it’s time for a home game. With 14 points and only three wins from 14 games, the SC is the second weakest home team in the league. Twelve home goals are also the second worst value behind the Sportfreunde Lotte (nine goals). On the other hand, Cologne conceded 22 goals in the South Stadium. Only two teams have had to accept more goals in the third league before their own fans. In the last eight home games, it was only enough for a win. Away it is much better for SC Fortuna Köln. With 21 points from 15 games, the Südstädter ranked sixth in the away table. There have been three wins, two draws and one defeat in the recent six away matches. After the first round Cologne had still stood on a relegation place. In the back round table you can find the club with 15 points after all in tenth place. In addition to cones are missing against eels and the injured Abu Hanna, Andersen, Bruhns, Hartmann and Pintol.
The VfR Aalen wanted to nachlage after the great 3-0 at KSC necessarily at home against Zwickau. But the guests from Saxony got off to a better start and deservedly took the lead. From nothing, VfR was able to equalize in the first round. In the second half then played only the host. The team of coach Rico Schmitt could not use the best chances and had to be content with one point. In the end, both teams were dissatisfied with the draw – Zwickau due to the odds in the first round, Aalen because of the numerous opportunities awarded in the second half. But for the Swabians the missed victory was certainly more dramatic.
Already since the 24th matchday shines at the club of the Ostalb the Red Lantern in the 3rd league. With a gap of seven points to the first non-relegation zone, Aalen must now start a series as fast as possible. On the Ostalb you can see a positive trend. After all, VfR has been undefeated for two games. But in total, eight points from the seven games under the new coach Rico Schmitt too little. Now the basement duels against Cologne and Jena are on. In a descent is the club probably a complete change before. As it has now become known, at VfR no player has a valid contract for the Regionalliga. With 12 points from 15 games Aalen is on the penultimate place of the away table. The Swabians had to accept 46 goals this season; that’s the worst score in league 3 behind Jena. Coach Schmitt only has to replace Fennell in Cologne, who received his tenth yellow card against Zwickau. Funk, who had to be replaced early on the last day after a collision, is on the other hand fit again. According to forecasts, the bookmaker is at a disadvantage against Fortuna Köln.
