Borussia Dortmund vs Koln odds


Despite the painful final day, Dortmund ended last season very strong with 40 points in the final half of the campaign – only in their last championship season in 2011/12 did BVB collect more in the second half of a Bundesliga campaign (47). The only defeat in that aforementioned period last term came in a 2-4 loss at Bayern in early April.

Koln will be somewhat confident heading into this game as in 2023 so far they’ve lost two of nine away games in the Bundesliga (like Bayer 04 Leverkusen), with only Dortmund losing fewer matches on the road (1). In fact, since the beginning of April, Koln have picked up 10 of a possible 12 away points (three wins and one draw), more than any other team in that period.
