Team News

FC Heidenheim
FC Koln
  • Lennard Maloney has a shoulder injury. Key striker Tim Kleindienst is available after suspension, but Thomas Keller has suffered an ACL injury and is ruled out.
  • Denis Huseinbasic and Benno Schmitz are both suspended after picking up five yellow cards. Striker Davie Selke has a fractured foot, while Luca Waldschmidt is also ruled out with a calf problem.
  • Luca Kilian has suffered an ACL injury and will be out for several months, while Justin Diehl has been suspended by the club over an ill-timed disciplinary matter.

Prediction

  • Another must win game for Koln who will be hoping for a Union Berlin defeat and also must improve their goal difference to move into the relegation play-off spot.
  • Promoted FCH have conceded 10 penalties this season, but shocked Bayern recently on home soil ahead of very respectable mid-table finish.
  • The league's lowest scorers with 27 goals in 33 games, Koln did manage to score three times to dramatically stave off relegation last week.
  • The reverse fixture ended 1-1, but relegation-haunted Koln can nick this one.
