Team News

RBL
FC Koln
  • El Chadaille Bitshiabu will be out for several months with a knee injury, while Willi Orban is expected to return ahead of schedule in December after a knee injury.
  • Jacob Christensen has a muscle tear, while back up keeper Philipp Pentke has a knee injury.

Prediction

  • Koln grabbed their first win of the season in the local derby against Gladbach to move off the bottom.
  • Koln have not kept a clean sheet in 16 games, with their last one coming in April.
  • 5th placed Leipzig have frittered away unnecessary points, missing two penalties against Bochum and also threw away a two-goal home lead to the perennial champions Bayern.
  • Both meetings last season ended in draws, but this time around Leipzig should have too much quality for hapless Koln.
