FK Crvena Zvezda vs FC Cologne Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Red Star Belgrade welcome FC Koln at the Stadion Rajko Mitic on Thursday night in the final round of the Europa League group H, with both sides looking to book their place into the next stage of the competition. Red Star Belgrade only managed a nil-nil away draw at BATE Borisov last time out, despite the fact they had 19 goalscoring opportunities. On the contrary, FC Koln won 1-0 at home over Arsenal thanks to a second-half goal from Sehrou Guirassy. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although they have only scored twice in five group fixtures this season, I fancy Red Star Belgrade to win here and to qualify for the round of 16. The Serbs have been in fantastic shape on home soil over the past seven months, as they have only lost to Arsenal in their last 19 games across all competitions.

FK Crvena Zvezda Preview

Red Star Belgrade have enjoyed an impressive run of form over the past two months as they come into this tie on the back of an eleven-game unbeaten streak. They looked incredibly strong at the back in this term, having kept seven clean sheets. Regarding their Europa League group H campaign, Red Star Belgrade have only lost once in five fixtures and currently lie second in the standings tied on 6 points with their Thursday’s opponents. The most interesting fact is that Red Star can qualify further in the competition despite the fact they have only scored two goals throughout this group stage campaign. Red Star Belgrade can count on their recent home form as they have only lost once in their last 19 home fixtures across all competitions and only conceded seven goals in the process. In addition, the Serbs were unbeaten in six European home meetings prior to their 0-1 loss at the hands of Arsenal last time out. Domestically, Red Star Belgrade sit at the top of the table with 53 points after 20 rounds, already six points clear of the second-placed Partizan. Aleksandar Pesic and Richmond Boakye have been Red Star Belgrade’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout their Super Liga campaign, as the pair bagged 29 goals between them.

FC Cologne Preview

Koln have had a terrible 2017/18 competitive season so far, but they did well to hold Schalke 04 to a 2-2 away draw in the Bundesliga at the weekend. Koln’s form over the past four months has been awful as they have only won three of their last 19 competitive fixtures. Their sole victories during this run were in the Europa League, as they are yet to win a single Bundesliga fixture this season. Cologne are currently rock bottom of the Bundesliga table with just three points to their name after 14 rounds, already eleven points behind safety. Scoring goals has been their main issue throughout their Bundesliga campaign, as they only managed to find the back of the net in six occasions this season. Koln kicked off this Europa League group stage campaign with three consecutive defeats, but they bounced back with back-to-back victories over BATE Borisov and Arsenal in their most recent two fixtures. This leaves FC Koln in third spot in the standings tied on six points with the second-placed Red Star Belgrade. However, they need to win this game in order to qualify further in the competition as they lost 0-1 at home in the reverse fixture with Red Star. Away from home, Cologna have only won once in their last ten games across all competitions and have failed to score in five of these.

FC Cologne Team News

Dominic Maroh, Dominique Heintz, Jhon Cordoba, Jonas Hector, Marcel Risse, Marco Hoger and Simon Zoller are all missing through injuries, while Yann Aurel Bisseck, Leonardo Bittencourt, Jorge Mere and Joao Queiros are all doubts.
