Germany – 1.Bundesliga | FC Koln VS RB Leipzig; Saturday, 16 March at 03:30 GMT +8

Köln, led by Timo Schultz, are currently one place above automatic relegation places due to poor home form and a difficult match against Leipzig. They have won only one of their last eight games.

RB Leipzig, a struggling German top flight side, began the season with a win against Bayern but has been inconsistent, losing in the Champions League and out of the DFB Cup.

Cologne manager Timo Schultz has no fitness concerns ahead of the match, with an injury-free squad. Köln will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Leipzig boss Marco Rose faces fitness concern with Lukas Klostermann’s hamstring injury. The team is likely to play in a 4-4-2 lineup with Gulacsi, Lukeba, Lenz, Orban, Orban, and Schlager.
