The unavailability of Mark Uth, Dimitrios Limniosm, Sebastian Andersson, and Florian Dietz will greatly limit the attacking prowess of the home side. Also, two of the main stay in defence (Kilian Luca and Pedersen) will not be available. It is to be seen if FC Koln can cope with the many absentees. At home, FC Koln have won 50% of the matches played scoring 18 in the process and conceding 10. FC Koln have a decent home record but the many absentees may be difficult to replace.
RB Leipzig (WWWDWW)
With Leipzig on six games without a loss, the team will be brimming with confidence and will want to continue the push for Champion League football next season and potentially for the Bundesliga title. Leipzig is also without the influential Nkunku, Gulacsi, and Olmo but should still have enough to overcome FC Koln.
A worry for Leipzig will be their away form. Away from home, Leipzig have won 33%, lost 33%, and drew 33% of the matches played in the Bundesliga. They have won ten of the eighteen matches played this season.
