[ClevPicks Prediction]: RB Leipzig vs Cologne: Werner Will Have A Strong Comeback?

leipzig-vs-cologne

Sargis Adamyan will do all in his power to ruin Timo Werner's homecoming to RB Leipzig when Cologne visits on Saturday.

When RB Leipzig plays Sargis Adamyan and Cologne on Saturday, Timo Werner may make his first debut since joining the team again (kick-off: 3.30pm CEST).

Latest

Werner relocated from Chelsea to Leipzig throughout the week, and he has affirmed that he is well enough to start for a team that drew 1-1 with his old team VfB Stuttgart on the opening weekend. The 26-year-old German striker set the club's goalscoring record for Leipzig during his first stint with the club, scoring 73 goals in 124 Bundesliga appearances between 2016 and 2020. He and Christopher Nkunku got along well during the 2019–20 season, and this weekend they might create a dynamic assault alongside the current Bundesliga Player of the Season. Werner's replacement, Andre Silva, might fill that position until he gets settled again, while newcomer David Raum will undoubtedly stay on the left flank now that Angelino has completed a loan transfer to Hoffenheim. However, due to an injury, defender Lukas Klostermann will be absent for a few weeks and Mohamed Simakan should take his place.

However, due to an injury, defender Lukas Klostermann will be absent for a few weeks and Mohamed Simakan should take his place.

With a 3-1 victory over Schalke at home on Matchday 1 of the season, visiting Cologne got the season off to a strong start. Anthony Modeste, a seasoned striker who scored 20 goals in the league previous season, was absent from that match and has since signed for Borussia Dortmund. After playing for about 30 minutes last week, Adamyan, an attacker from Armenia who was recruited from Hoffenheim this summer, may soon make his first start. Jonas Hector will lead the squad, and Steffen Baumgart will likely continue to his aggressive mentality even if Timo Hübers, a defender, is back in training.

The lone long-term injury absence is Greek winger Dimitris Limnios, who scored eight goals while on loan with Twente in the Netherlands last season. Frontman Mark Uth is out with a groin injury.

Werner got 28 goals in 2019/20

Match Stats

Nkunku directly contributed to three of Leipzig's four goals in league play this year (two goals, one assist).

In 2019–20, Werner scored both at home and away against Cologne. On his final Bundesliga outing against Augsburg on June 27, 2020, he scored twice.

Since Domenico Tedesco took over on December 9th, 2021, Leipzig has never lost more than two games in a row in competitive play.

Hector's sole career double to date came against Leipzig on April 20, 2021, when he scored both of his last Bundesliga goals (a 2-1 win).

Baumgart has lost all four of his Bundesliga encounters with Leipzig (D2, L2). On Matchday 1, Cologne had the greatest Expected Goals (xG) rating of any team (4.8).

Possible Lineups

Leipzig: Gulacsi (c) - Simakan, Orban, Halstenberg - Henrichs, Laimer, Kampl, Raum – Olmo - Nkunku, Silva

Out: Klostermann (ankle), Poulsen (thigh)

Doubtful: -

Coach: Domenico Tedesco

Cologne: Schwäbe - Schmitz, Kilian, Chabot, Hector (c) - Skhiri - Schindler, Ljubicic, Kainz - Adamyan, Dietz

Out: Limnios (knee), Uth (groin)

Doubtful: -

Coach: Steffen Baumgart

Analytics:

The initial figure for this game was -1.25 for the home team, and the handicap remained the same in the later stages of the game, putting the home team in the middle of the pack.

In the last time, RB Leipzig lost to Bayern Munich, ending their winning streak. This time around, the home side will be facing Cologne, and with the current form of both sides, it will be a problem for them to hold on.

RB Leipzig have a slight advantage over Cologne in their previous encounters. Again, the initial figure for this match is -1.25 for the home team, which is a deeper figure for RB Leipzig, who have been handicapped by Cologne in their last 5 matches, but they are not superior in terms of home games and statistics.

Cologne are now in contention for a Champions League place and will certainly be less motivated than the home side, so the visitors are likely to grab points.

I believe the predictions are gonna be miserable, and that's why we offer different predictions, but don't worry, we just offer 1 prediction on 1 aspect, like over 2.5 OR under 2.5, we don't offer under 2.5 AND over 2.5, no.
