Team News

Borussia Dortmund
FC Koln
  • Emre Can is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow last weekend. Julian Brandt is nearing a return from a thigh injury, while Gregor Kobel should return between the sticks and skipper Marco Reus from illness.
  • Karim Adeyemi is nearing a return from a muscle injury. Youssoufa Moukoko is ruled out for several weeks with an ankle ligament tear and Mateu Morey is on his way back from a serious knee injury.
  • Jan Thielmann is struggling with a thigh injury, while defenders Luca Kilian and Kristian Pedersen are both nearing returns from muscle injuries.
  • Florian Dietz suffered an ACL injury and will be missing for several months, while Mark Uth remains on the sidelines after a pelvic operation. Sebastian Andersson is on his way back from knee surgery.


  • After eight straight wins to start the year, second-placed Dortmund sloppily dropped points for the first time this year in the Ruhr derby. The title-chasers haven't featured in a 0-0 draw in 113 games, a run stretching back to October 2019.
  • Koln have drawn the most games in the league failing to score in six of their last seven games, including the last four and boast the worst attack in 2023 with just three goals to their name.
  • With Bayern playing on Sunday, Dortmund can go top with a win and should nick a narrow win in front of their passionate home fans.
