Team News

  • Martin Lanig could return to the starting line-up, meaning Kevin Pezzoni would drop to the bench.
  • Lukas Podolski returns from suspension. He will start behind Milivoje Novakovic.
  • Sebastian Kehl and Ilkay Gündogan compete for a spot in central midfield.
  • Kevin Großkreutz and Ivan Perisic compete for the spot on the left wing.
  • Manager Klopp could field an unchanged team.

Prediction

  • After a heavy loss against Hannover last weekend, Cologne are in deep relegation trouble. They are only three points above the drop zone and need results at home now. The return of Lukas Podolski should give them some confidence.
  • Dortmund are in great form at the moment. They have reached the cup final during the week and are five points ahead of Bayern in the table.
  • Expect Dortmund to control the game and Cologne to wait for their chances on the counter. The away team should be favourites to win.
