Team News

  • Manager Stefan Ruthenbeck has several players returning from injury after the winter break and could make some changes to his squad.
  • Jonas Hector could therefore make his comeback at right-back.
  • Winter signing Simon Terodde returned to Cologne this month and should start up front.
  • Denis Zakaria returns from suspension to start in central midfield.
  • If Raffael does not recover from muscular problems in time, Patrick Herrmann could start on the right wing, with Thorgan Hazard switching to the position up front.
  • Otherwise, manager Dieter Hecking is unlikely to make any unforced changes.


  • Cologne picked up their first victory of the season in their final game before the winter break and face a nearly impossible task of avoiding relegation. They can only focus on their domestic campaign in the second half of the season, though, and might be able to get off to a better start with some players returing from injury.
  • Gladbach endured a mixed first half of the season, but currently occupy a top-6 spot. They have struggled with their balance and consistency so far and need to find their rhythm now to keep pace with the top-4.
  • Expect this "Rheinderby" to be a very intense and hard-fought game from the outset.
