Sunday Bundesliga action from the Borussia Park, as Gladbach take on Cologne.

With a League position of seventh, Cologne will be one places higher than struggling Gladbach, when they visit the Borussia Park.

B Mönchengladbach have 12 points to their name, going into this tie

Can Gladbach make it three out of three, having turned over Werder Bremen 5-1 and RB Leipzig 3-0 in their last two games?

Also, with an unfortunate Gladbach that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Daniel Farke’s men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With 12 points, they currently sit eighth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws having won three games, drawn three meetings, and lost two matches.

Gladbach have won three fixtures and lost one game of their four League matches at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see B Mönchengladbach on 15 points.

Gladbach are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Daniel Farke’s selection choices significantly.

FC Köln go into this game with 13 points secured

Cologne come to this game on the back of a 3-2 home win against Borussia Dortmund at Rheinenergiestadion.

Also, Cologne are quickly becoming the Bundesliga’s draw specialists, having recorded four in their last seven meetings. Now they have 3 matches won, 1 games lost and 4 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in seventh place, with a total of 13 points having won three games, drawn four fixtures, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Cologne have won one game and drawn three games.

A victory for FC Köln would put them on 16 points.

Good Attacking Performance

Cologne will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (14). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Florian Kainz (3), Benno Erik Schmitz (2), and Dejan Ljubicic (2). Cologne have conceded 10 goals.

Injury and illness have depleted Steffen Baumgart’s Cologne and they will likely be missing six key personnel for Sunday’s match.
