Khaya’s picks

The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT -

FC Cologne will be look­ing to con­tinue their push to win pro­mo­tion to the top flight as they wel­come Union Ber­lin tonight.

The hosts started the Bun­desliga 2 with a win last week and were lucky not to lose some of their star play­ers de­spite be­ing rel­e­gated to the se­cond tier.

It has been a norm in Bun­desliga for rel­e­gated clubs to lose their play­ers as top Ger­man and Euro­pean clubs come shop­ping in the sum­mer.

Union Ber­lin, on the other hand, are now a very es­tab­lished Bun­desliga 2 team, play­ing their ninth con­sec­u­tive sea­son.

They got off the sea­son with a lone goal win which was scored by Felix Kroos, brother of Euro­pean cham­pi­ons Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos. They will be hop­ing to get an­other good re­sult tonight.

Cologne, how­ever, have won five out of their last six meet­ings with Union Ber­lin, hav­ing lost just once. I there­fore be­lieve that they will be too strong for their vis­i­tors tonight.
