Koln will host Holstein Kiel at the RheinEnergie in the first leg of the Bundesliga relegation playoff.

Koln finished the regular season 16th, two points outside the relegation zone. Sebastiaan Bornauw’s late header against Schalke on the final weekend of the regular Bundesliga season was the difference between the two sides, and it proved crucial for Koln. They had eight victories, nine draws, and 17 losses, scoring 34 goals while conceding 60. Taking a closer look at those stats, the hosts must dramatically strengthen their backline if they are to prevent the fall. They now have a shot to secure their place in the top flight for next season if they do well in this playoff.
Holstein Kiel has a fantastic chance to make it to the German Bundesliga to share in the rewards of playing in one of Europe’s most prestigious leagues. The visitors have never played in the Bundesliga, and their most recent playoff run in 2018 ended in a 4-1 aggregate loss to Wolfsburg. They must find a way past FC Koln, beginning with this visit. Holstein Kiel lost out on automatic promotion and still have themselves to blame, but they have one more opportunity due to the extra two games applied to the end of the season

Koln’s inconsistent defending was one of the issues boss Friedhelm Funkel struggled to address, particularly after their late-season comeback. They’ve only managed one clean sheet in their last eight home games, and they’ve given up eight goals in the last four.
Holstein Kiel are coming off a 3-2 home loss to Darmstadt in their last two Bundesliga games. Janni-Luca Serra gave them an early advantage, but they were breached three times in the second half before Fin Bartels pulled one back three minutes from time.
