FC Koln will be hoping to get back to winning ways by getting all three points against this red hot Werder Bremen team.

FC Koln have been dismal recently.   They have won only 1 of their last 6 games, losing 3 and drawing the other 2.

They are currently on a run of 4 games without a win, and have drawn their last 2 league games.

They are currently eight in the league table, 3 points adrift of their opponent who are currently 6th and in the last European spot in the league table.

They have won just 2 of their last 6 home games, and they gotten only one point from their last 2 home games.

Werder Bremen are one of the hottest teams in Europe right now.

They have won 5 of their last 6 league games, drawing the other game.

This form has seen them rise to the 6th and they currently occupy the final European position in the German league table.

Just one point separates them from 5th placed Hertha Berlin so a win here will see them leapfrog Hertha.

Their away form is equally impressive – they have not lost any of their last 6 away games, wining four and drawing two of those fixtures.

They have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 away matches.
