The Bundesliga match between revitalized FC Koln and high-flying RB Leipzig will take place at the RheinEnergieStadion on Saturday. Since returning from Germany’s prolonged midseason vacation, neither team has suffered a defeat.
For Koln, it has been an odd return to action, but overall, it has been encouraging. Before the World Cup, the Billy Goats managed just one point from their final five Bundesliga games, but they have since mounted an impressive recovery to resurrect their season.
A wonderful way to open the season was with a 7-1 hammering of Werder Bremen, with Ellyes Skhiri and Steffen Tigges both shining with two goals and one assist apiece. With Skhiri scoring once more, they followed up that impressive victory with a spectacular draw at Bayern Munich. If not for Joshua Kimmich’s improbable last-second goal, Koln would have left the Allianz Arena with three points.

A 0-0 draw with Schalke at the weekend, however, was disappointing, and the players felt that it was a squandered opportunity to continue their impressive run of victories. Given that Schalke is currently the bottom team in the Bundesliga and had dropped their previous two post-World Cup matches by an aggregate score of 9-1, they would have felt confident in defeating Schalke.
Another team that has excelled in its comeback from a difficult stretch early in the season is Leipzig, who are currently perhaps Bayern’s strongest title rivals. Before the season ended in November, Marco Rose’s team was undefeated in their final 13 games across all competitions. Since the season has resumed, they have collected seven out of a possible nine points.
Defeating Schalke 6-1 gave the team even more confidence before they defeated Stuttgart 2-1 last weekend to get within two points of the league leaders. However, given that the top six teams are now separated by just five points, rivalry is fierce around Leipzig as well.
