Koln host Borussia Dortmund in the second round of the German Bundesliga. The meeting will be played on Friday evening, August 23, starting at 7:30 pm UK on RheinEnergieStadion.
Koln started the new season in the Bundesliga with a visit to Wolfsburg, which was lost by 2:1. Last season, the team rallied in the 2. The Bundesliga managed to win it and finished with 63 points after 19 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. The squad was retained, with not much money being spent on new players, with the impression of attracting Sebastiaan Bornauw from RSC Anderlecht for 6 mil. Euros like Ellyes Skhiri came from HSC Montpellier for the same amount of money. Central striker Serhou Guirassy was sold to SC Amiens for the same amount of 6 million. euro. The team of Achim Beierlorzer will surely delight their fans as the first home team of the season will lead the champion Borussia Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund finished after FC Bayern Munich after being leaders for a long period of time and can definitely be disappointed that they failed to win the title last season. The Lucien Favre team managed to keep their stars, with only Abdou Diallo being sold to Paris Saint-Germain for 32 miles. Euro and Maximilian Philipp to Dinamo Moscow for 20 mil. euro. On the other hand, Mats Hummels from Bayern Munich returned for the 30 mil. Euro, Thorgan Hazard was attracted by Borussia Mönchengladbach for 25 mil. The Nico Schulz of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and Julian Brandt of Bayer 04 Leverkusen also came for this transfer. The last major name in The Black and Yellows selection was central striker Paco Alcácer, who arrived from FC Barcelona for 21 miles. euro. Certainly the Borussia Dortmund team looks even more impressive than last season and they will surely be the main contenders for the title along with Bayern Munich.
The difference in level between the Bundesliga and 2. The Bundesliga is big and although last season’s champions in the second tier of German football, Koln are an outsider in the upcoming clash. If Borussia Dortmund want to be a real contender for the title match against rookies will have to be won at all costs and given the impressive composition that the Dortmund coach has, I think he will be able to handle this task and Borussia Dortmund will beat Koln as a guest.
