FC Köln vs Magdeburg Tip of the Day

Let´s head off to Germany today for our tip of the day – FC Köln vs Magdeburg. The game between FC Köln and Magdeburg is going to be a good one… and there can only be one winner. Today we will see the classic top v bottom game and both teams have much to play for. If Köln win, they will share first place and leave Union Berlin 6 points behind in the race for promotion to Bundeliga. Magdeburg, on the other hand, are in the relegation spot and seriously need points today to get above the red line.

Our Prediction For This Game: 

The bookies all agree who the favourite in today’s game is! FC Köln have been playing fantastic football and have had 4 wins in a row now. Magdeburg, on the other hand, have only 1 win in the last 16 games. They are in a tough spot and we really don’t see how they can possibly win today. So, our tip for today is -1.5 on FC Köln. 888sport offers us odds of 1.87  for that and we’ll invest 5 units on today’s tip!

FC Köln:

Köln is on fire at the moment. They have had 4 straight wins and in those they have scored 18 goals and conceded only 2. That gives them a crazy good average of 4.5 goals scored per game! They are in a comfortable second place now… and the top 2 will be going to the Bundesliga. However, they have both Union Berlin and St. Pauli behind them, so they need a win today to leave pull ahead and get some space to breathe.


The newbies, Magdeburg, are in the bottom, with only one win in 16 games this season. That win came against Sandhausen, a team we can find at the bottom of the table. They have suffered 3 straight losses where they conceded 3 goals… and today they face of against one of the best teams, a team that has scored an average of 4.5 goals per game. Clearly, this can only end in one way.

Reason for and against the tip:

 FC Köln have scored 4.5 goals on average in their most recent games.
 Magdeburg have only won one game this season and they have play edpoorly.
 FC Köln need to win today to get some space in the race for promotion to the Bundesliga.

Tip: FC Köln -1.5
