Borussia Dortmund – Köln
Borussia Dortmund welcomes Koln in a match from the 4th round of the German Bundesliga.Borussia Dortmund started the new campaign in Germany with two wins and one draw. They won against Wolfsburg and Hertha in the first two rounds but lost two points in the draw with Freiburg afterwards. If they win against Koln on Sunday, most probably they will return to the top position of the Bundesliga.During the week Dortmund didn’t have a nice experience against Tottenham at Wembley. The match in London ended with a 3-1 win for Spurs, which for Dortmund was a disappointing way to start the new campaign in the Champions League.Koln also had a European game during the week. On Thursday Koln also travelled to London, facing Arsenal in the Europa League. The match at the Emirates Stadium ended with the exact same result – 3-1 for The Gunners.In the Bundesliga, Koln are doing very, very badly. They are the only team in Germany right now, who have still not won any points. Koln is on the last 18th place with 0 points and a goal difference of 1:7. It’s a really unexpected beginning for a team who qualified for the European competitions last season. Can they regroup and show their true strength? We shall wait and see.Borussia Dortmund has some problems in their squad before the game. Marcel Schmelzer, Hendrik Bonmann, Raphael Guerreiro and Marco Reus are still injured and unavailable for selection. Meanwhile, Mario Gotze, Marc Bartra, Andre Schurrle, Sebastian Rode and Eric Durm remain doubtful.Doubtful for Koln are Jonas Hector, Artjoms Rudnevs and Marius Laux, who are still dealing with different problems before the trip to Dortmund.Borussia Dortmund is the heavy favourite here, because of current form and position on the table. But don’t write Koln too easily – they really need points at the moment.
