Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips – FC Köln
Having collected 10 points from the last 5 league-matches, Köln remains firmly in the hunt to put an end to an impressive season with a top-6 finish.
Having the team in confident form and without any major absentees, Steffen Baumgart may fancy his chances of victory and use a slightly more adventurous 4-1-3-2 system for his side. Marvin Schwäbe will stand in goal with the first-choice centre-back partnership of Luca Killian and Timo Hübers in front of him. Jannes Horn might be preferred in the left-back position with Benno Schmitz on the right-side of the backline.
Salih Özcan will be the anchorman of the side taking up the defensive-midfield role in the centre of the park. Dejan Ljubicic will possibly line up on the right-flank with Florian Kainz on the left-win and Ondrej Duda as the attacking-midfielder through the middle. Mark Uth could be deployed in a centre-forward role in a strike-pair along with the talisman of the side, Anthony Modeste.

Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips – DSC Arminia Bielefeld
Arminia Bielefeld could well stay in the drop-zone for yet another week having taken a meagre 5 points from its previous 10 league-fixtures.
Frank Kramer has usually preferred to set his side out in a 4-2-3-1 formation and he is further hampered by injuries to quite a few of his key players. Stefan Ortega Moreno is the goalkeeper with Joakim Nilsson and Amos Pieper as the centre-back pairing. Cédric Brunner may remain sideline so Guilherme Ramos could continue in the right-back role with Andrés Andrade on the opposite side.
Fabian Kunze is ruled out with a head-injury so Sebastian Vasiliadis and Manuel Prietl are likely to be two holding-midfielders protecting the backline. Patrick Wimmer is likely to operate down the right-wing with Alessandro Schöpf over on the left. Masaya Okugawa will be the main creative force of the side in the no.10 position while Janni Serra could start as the centre-forward in the absence of Florian Krüger.
