Köln is in a comparable situation as they had been the previous week, a victory would assure them of staying away from the bottom 2. Despite their inability to play the entire ninety minutes versus Augsburg the previous week, Jan Thielmann and Mark Uth could offer some more attacking depth on Saturday. This weekend’s match will be missed by Dejan Ljubicic due to illness, while Philipp Pentke and Jacob Christensen will be out due to knee injuries and muscular issues, respectively. Damion Downs is similarly questionable.
