- FC Koln haven’t won since the season resumed.
- Leipzig have kept four straight away clean sheets.
- Leipzig have scored ten goals in their last four away league games, all scored in two of them.
FC Koln are 11th in the table, while their opponets RB Leipzig remained in third position. They had drawn their first two games and then lost 3-1 at Hoffenheim on Wednesday evening. Both sides had a player sent off but Koln found themselves 3-0 down after 48 minutes. This left them eight points adrift of the final Europa League place but only seven above the relegation play-off position. They are unbeaten in their last three at home but the last two have both ended in 2-2 draws. Getting a point from their last home fixture was an achievement as they trailed Fortuna Dusseldorf with just two minutes of normal time remaining.
RB Leipzig could have gone second if winning at home to Hertha Berlin as they went a goal down after nine minutes. They recovered to take the lead but a goal eight minutes from time earned the visitors a point. That left Leipzig in third and nine points behind leaders Bayern Munich. They are only two clear of Bayer Leverkusen in fifth so a bit of work is needed to secure a top-four finish and a Champions League place. They are unbeaten in their last nine league games with just one defeat in the last 18.
Leipzig need to get back into winning ways and can get a win here..
