Team News

FC Koln
RBL
  • Mark Uth is struggling with a knee injury, while striker Luca Waldschmidt is set to return after the international break.
  • Dejan Ljubicic is available after suspension, but has been feeling unwell along with Linton Maina. Jan Thielmann is suspended for one more game after his sending off against Leverkusen.
  • Timo Hübers is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card, while Justin Diehl will be out for several weeks with a muscle injury.
  • Lukas Klostermann is nearing a return from a muscle injury, but barring late injuries coach Marco Rose has a full strength squad at his disposal.

Prediction

  • The league's lowest scorers with 19 goals, Koln were involved in a uncharacteristic 3-3 derby draw with Gladbach last weekend.
  • Koln have only garnered two points after falling behind all season are are seven points from the safety zone.
  • Leipzig won the reverse fixture 6-0, and need the three points to push for a Champions League spot so another comfortable win is on the cards for the team from Eastern Germany.
