RB Leipzig is under pressure at the start of the English week!
The second in the table will visit 1. FC Köln at the start of the 30th round.
The game is of great interest to both teams. After an unsuccessful debut, Colony is hoping to gain first points under new coach Fredhelm Funkel so that he does not lose contact with the no-touch stations. (German League: Results and Timetable).

But Leipzig also needs victory. After the 0-0 win over TSG Hoffenheim last Friday, Bayern Munich seized their opportunity against Wolfsburg and, thanks to their 3-2 win, is back with seven points – with five matches remaining. If Julian Nagelsmann’s team wants to keep the slightest chance for the championship, then a win over Cologne must be possible. In the event of another mistake, Bayern may continue their lead against Bayer Leverkusen in the evening. (German League: Table).
But for a few days now, Julian Nagelsmann himself has been in the spotlight – he’s traded as the favorites at Bayern Munich to succeed Hansi Flick after announcing after the Wolfsburg match that he wanted to leave the record champion at the end of the season. Nagelsmann reacted to the rumors: “It was hard to get yourself talking when there was nothing,” he said. “I can’t sit down and say I’m going to break up with Lina other than you tomorrow because I’ve never been with her before.”
Against Hoffenheim, his team retreated after the win, and the presumed winning goal in injury time was withdrawn by Joseph Poulsen due to a handball. The road to the Cologne match is clear to Nigelsmann: “We want to play a very good game away from home and keep going. The first-leg match ended 0-0 in a 0-0 draw. We want to get back the points we left there on Tuesday!”
Marcel Sabitzer is a suspect against Cologne, an Austrian with a stiff calf. Yusef Poulsen also has groin problems, and the mission remains uncertain.
Cologne is hoping to use his chances better against the Saxons than against Leverkusen, as the aluminum goat hit three times, but failed to score 3-0 at Leverkusen.
