Bundesliga Matchday 27 Betting Tips – FC Köln
Despite not being at its best since the winter-break, Köln has shown reasonably consistent form to merit a spot in the top-half of the table.
There are not any major injury-absentees therefore our Bundesliga betting tips experts reckon Steffen Baumgart will line up side in a 4-2-3-1 system. Marvin Schwäbe has taken over as the first-choice between the posts with Luca Kilian and Timo Hübers as the central-defensive pairing. Benno Schmitz will be lining up in the right-back position with Jonas Hector starting in his usual spot on the left side of the defence.
Salih Özcan and Ellyes Skhiri should be the two central-midfielders protecting the backline. Dejan Ljubicic may get the nod to start on the right-wing with Florian Kainz operating through the left. Ondrej Duda is likely to take up the no.10 role behind the centre-forward Anthony Modeste. Yet in spite of his sparkling scoring-form Köln has scored more than a goal in just 2 of its last 1o matches.

With its solid run of form since the midseason-interval, Borussia Dortmund has reignited the title-race but it still needs to carry on this strong momentum.
With a long list of injury-absentees, Marco Rose has usually set his team out in the 4-2-3-1 system lately. Mats Hummels, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Manuel Akanji are sidelined therefore Emre Can and Marin Pongracic will form the centre-back partnership with Gregor Kobel in goal. Thomas Meunier is also out of action and Felix Passlack will continue in the right-back role with Nico Schulz on the left.
Axel Witsel and Mahmoud Dahoud will be two holding-midfielder sin front of the backline. Marius Wolf should keep his spot on the right-flank with Thorgan Hazard starting on the left-wing. Our Bundesliga betting tips experts believe Erling Haaland will start this match after returning to fitness with Jude Bellingham occupying the attacking-midfield role behind the striker. Dortmund has the best scoring-record on home-turf with an average of 3 goals per match.
