Looking to steal top spot in the Bundesliga 2 table, Hamburg will welcome FC Koln to the Volksparkstadion in Monday’s matchup.
Starting with the hosts, looking to immediately bounce back to the Bundesliga following their relegation last season, it has been a very bright start for Hamburg. In their opening 11 games in Bundesliga 2, they have won six, drawn three and lost twice, scoring 12 and conceding 11 in return, they now hold the second best defensive record in the division. With a points tally of 21, a win on Monday will see them go clear at the top of the table. As for their recent form, Hamburg are now enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run and have also won four of their last five in all competitions.
As for the visitors, while Koln’s bright start to the season saw them also planning an immediate return to the Bundesliga, they have recently begun to show some struggles. In their opening 11 games, Koln have also won six, drawn three and lost twice, scoring 24 and conceding 16 in return. While they may hold the best-attacking stats, only St. Pauli hold a worse defensive record in the top half of the table. As for their recent run of form, although they may sit second in the table, Koln have now failed to win any of their last three Bundesliga 2 matches.
