    This season looks set to be a long one for Koln in the Bundesliga, who have been sucked into the relegation play-off spot of late. On Saturday afternoon, the Billy Goats host Hertha Berlin at the Rhein Energie Stadion.

    The home side heads into this clash on the back of a four-game winless run in the German top-flight. A 5-0 hammering at Freiburg last time out means that Markus Gisdol’s team has suffered defeats in three of their four winless league matches.

    Koln biggest problem of late in the Bundesliga has been finding the net, having failed to score in four outings in the German top-flight. The lack of league goals is unsurprising, as only two teams have scored fewer times in the Bundesliga this season.

    Big signing Sebastian Andersson has failed to hit the heights in attack after joining from Union Berlin. The Swedish international has scored just two goals in his ten appearances for the home team.

    Hertha Berlin boss Bruno Labbadia is reportedly under major pressure after a run of just one win in their last five matches in the German top-flight. Last time out, the Old Lady suffered a rather underwhelming 1-0 defeat at Arminia Bielefeld last time out.

    Their recent unconvincing league form has left the club from the German capital 12th place in the table, just four points ahead of the home side. After spending relatively big in recent transfer windows, the current performances are not living up to expectations.

    Hertha have not been great on their travels in recent months in the Bundesliga, winning just one of their last seven matches away from home in the German top-flight.

    Their recent league games on the road have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four away matches in the Bundesliga.

    Forebet predicts that Koln’s recent poor run of form will continue in this clash, with Hertha Berlin recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
