FC Cologne was placed at 18th position. They made 8 points in the table. They made 12 goals and 9 assists. While Bayer Leverkusen was placed at 6th position. They made 25 points in the table. They made 22 goals and 17 assists. Against the bottom side and third-worst defence in the division, another high-scoring affair looks pretty likely.
Koln have lost five of their last six league games, with their latest defeat at Union Berlin leaving them bottom of the table on goal difference. Coach Gisdol is boosted by the return of Czichos and Hector from suspension, with the defensive pair expected to go straight back into the side.
Left-back Sinkgraven made his comeback from injury against Juventus but Wendell could be recalled here, as could Bailey and Volland in attack.
