Live in-play betting – 

Dortmund host Koln just a few days after their respective European matches in midweek.

Dortmund are favourites and rightly so as they search for a return to winning ways.

They drew their last match against Freiburg which brought an end to a four match winning streak they had put together thanks to the 14 goals they scored with the likes of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang leading their attack.

They will have had enough rest ahead of this game and they have a good chance of returning to winning ways here.

Koln are on a terrible run of form.

They have lost all four of their last four games.

They looked like earning an unlikely three points against Arsenal on Thursday but they blew a first half lead and lost the game 3-1 – that result follows a 1-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach, 1-3 loss to Hamburger SV and a 3-0 loss to Augsburg.

They lost Anthony Modeste over the summer – the attacker was responsible for almost 50% of their total goals last season.

If they fail to arrest this slide they might end the season relegated to the second division.
