FC Köln and Borussia Dortmund will square off at the RheinEnergieStadion stadium in Cologne, Germany, on January 20.
Heading into last weekend’s crucial road match versus basement club SV Darmstadt 98, Dortmund boss Edin Terzic was under increasing pressure following his team’s 6-game winless streak in all competitions at the end of 2023. But BVB’s easy 3-0 victory against the Lilies has re-entered the race for a top-4 spot. Midway throughout the first half, Julian Brandt gave the score a boost. Then, on minute 77, Jadon Sancho, who was on loan from Manchester United, celebrated his return by setting up Marco Reus for a goal. In stoppage time, Youssoufa Moukoko added a third goal to help Dortmund win their 8th league game of the year. Even though Dortmund is now 15 points below leaders Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga and in 5th place overall, their win moved them 3 points of the top 4.
With 8 victories, 6 draws, and 3 losses thus far this season, Borussia Dortmund is 5th in the Bundesliga standings. They are now 3 points behind RB Leipzig in the race for a Champions League berth and a place in the top 4. In Europe’s premier club competition, Edin Terzic‘s team has had much better luck as they emerged victorious from the group of death, which also featured PSG, AC Milan, and Newcastle. Supporters will be hopeful that the club can maintain the winning mentality from their most recent 3-0 victory against Darmstadt into this match. After a difficult 2023 season, the visitors are going for their first back-to-back victories in almost 2 months. Koln has difficult days ahead of them both on and off the field as a result of a decision upheld by the Court for Arbitration of Sport (CAS) last month, which forces the team to play two complete seasons under a transfer embargo.
