Bundesliga Matchday 29 Betting Tips – FC Köln
Köln is in a bit of a lull having taken just 5 points from its previous 5 matches while goals are starting to become a fairly rare commodity.
With home-advantage on its side, Steffen Baumgart will probably set his side out in a reasonably attack-minded 4-1-3-2 system although he may be missing a few players for this clash. Timo Hübers is suspended so Julian Chabot might come in to take his place as the centre-back partner for Luca Killian with Marvin Schwäbe in goal. Benno Schmitz will start at right-back with Jonas Hector on the left side of the defence.
Salih Özcan will act as the anchorman in front of the backline with Dejan Ljubicic on the right flank and Florian Kainz working down the left-wing. Ondrej Duda should feature in the no.10 position behind the two strikers Mark Uth and Anthony Modeste who should recover from a slight illness to start this game. Köln desperately needs its talisman centre-forward with the team scoring just 3 goals at home this year.

Bundesliga Matchday 29 Betting Tips – FSV Mainz 05
Mainz has dropped out of the top-half and no longer has any games in hand after picking up just 4 points off the past 5 games.
As he does not suffer from any major injury-issues, Bo Svensson should set his side out in the 3-5-2 for this match. Robin Zentner will be the goalkeeper while Stefan Bell, Alexander Hack and Moussa Niakhaté will form the defensive-line in front of him. While Mainz possesses the 4th defensive-record in the Bundesliga, it is still conceding nearly 2 goals per game on the road.
Anton Stach is likely to be the anchorman of the midfield providing extra protection to the backline with Leandro Barreiro Martins and Jean-Paul Boëtius being the central-midfielders on either side of him. Silvan Widmer operated in his usual spot on the right-wing with Aarón Martín doing likewise on the opposite flank. Karim Onisiwo and Jonathan Burkhardt will work as the strike-pair up ahead.
