The previous season was the first one for the Cologne side after a successful run in the 2018/19 Zwei Bundesliga. It was a solid all-round performance, considering they were just promoted at the time. 14th place is nothing to write home about, but most new teams tend to be relegated right at the gate.
From what little can be gathered about Koln, though, a Top 10 Finish would be a huge success for them. To be fair, though, they got up to 5th place just a few short years ago, but financial problems and uncertain management ran the club into the ground in a matter of months. As it stands, most bookies price a Top Half Finish at 7.00.
Koln Key Players
It’s clear that the club’s full roster is far from complete, though now they’ve had some time to fill the ranks with experienced Bundesliga players.
The key actors here are in the typical tradition of German football – a duo of versatile backs and an immovable defensive midfielder. In this case, these are Sebastiaan Bornauw, Noah Katterbach, and Ellyes Skhiri. Team captain Jonas Hector is equally important, though he’ll be forced to spend the first few necks away from the pitch due to a neck injury.
On the flip side, the attacking lineup has been completely restructured compared to last year. Experience still seems to be the biggest factor here: Sebastian Andersson was transferred from Union Berlin and Ondrej Duda from Hertha.
If we also take into account the loan of Marius Wolf from Dortmund, Koln will have a lot more offensive options than they had previously.
As Koln is located in Rhine-Ruhr region, obviously rivals are clubs from nearby cities. Expect frantic atmosphere and passion in matches against Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen and Fortuna Düsseldorf. Match against Borussia is above all and is also known as Rheinland derby.
Through history Koln knew for better times. They have won the title on three occasions and 4 times they won Cup. It was a long time ago, so we shouldn’t expect them to enter competition for trophies anytime soon. They are playing at Mungendorfer stadium, in front of 50.000 fans and you can expect the stadium to be fully packed every time they play with excellent atmosphere.
