- Arminia Bielefeld are the league’s lowest scorers with just 14 goals netted in 18 games
- Under 2.5 goals has copped in five of Arminia Bielefeld’s eight away games this season
- Cologne have failed to score in each of their last three Bundesliga home matches
Relegation rivals unlikely to put on a show
An important game in the Bundesliga relegation shake-up sees Cologne play host to Arminia Bielefeld and the struggling duo are unlikely to put on a show at the RheinEnergieStadion.
Arminia Bielefeld were narrow 1-0 winners at home to Cologne in the reverse fixture in September when it took a 78th-minute strike from Joan Edmundsson to split the sides.
And it is easy to envisage another low-scoring encounter between these relegation rivals.
No team in the Bundesliga is averaging fewer shots per game this season than Arminia Bielefeld’s 8.7, while hosts Cologne are not faring much better averaging only 9.3 shots per outing.
Arminia Bielefeld are the league’s lowest scorers with only 14 goals netted in 18 games and they have notched just four times in eight road fixtures, firing blanks in three of their last five away games.
Cologne have grabbed just 15 goals in 18 league matches this season and they have failed to score in each of their last three home outings.
Given the pair’s lack of recent firepower and the importance of this fixture, goals look set to be in short supply and we predict the contest to feature two or fewer goals.
Correct score punters should opt for a 0-0 draw. Cologne’s last home game with Hertha Berlin ended goalless, as did Arminia Bielefeld’s previous away trip at Hoffenheim.
