FC Köln will be looking for another big win this weekend, as they look to move into the European places in the Bundesliga. However, they face a huge challenge, as Freiburg are the visitors, and they will be looking to move up to third in the standings.
A really competitive match in the Bundesliga is set for Saturday afternoon, as two clubs that are very much on the up at the moment in Germany go head-to-head. Cases can be made for both FC Köln and Freiburg to finish in a European place this season, but something will need to give when they meet this weekend.
FC Köln come into this fixture on the back of some indifferent form, as they have picked up just one point from the last six available. They at least bounced back last weekend and avoided a second straight defeat by taking a point from their game against Bochum.
They looked to be heading towards all three points in that fixture after Anthony Modeste had put them ahead on the stroke of half time, but Bochum levelled the scores with 20 minutes remaining.
Freiburg are sitting fifth in the Bundesliga standings at present, and will have their sights firmly set on finishing in a Champions League place this season. They are just a point behind Union Berlin coming into this round of fixtures, and will be aware that three points could see them end the round as high as third.
Freiburg’s form is slightly more patchy than their rivals for a place in the top four, as they have picked up just two wins in the previous five games that they have played. However, they did pick up a win last weekend against Stuttgart. Kevin Schade scored the second goal in that comfortable victory at home.
