An important point secured against 1899 Hoffenheim will have left Cologne quite happy with their 1-1 draw. In that game they had 43% possession and managed 6 attempts on goal, with 1 on target, compared to 1899 Hoffenheim who had 10 attempts and 3 on target.
While they have shown an appetite for goals over the last 6 matches, clocking up 5, they have not had it all their own way at the back and have given away 9 goals and some valuable points in the process. They have been unable to score at home in 3 of their last 6 games, and so far this season they have conceded at least 1 goal in 18 of their 21 games overall.
They've had a less than ideal run of form recently, winning just 1 of their last 6 games. From their 21 league matches this season, they have managed just 3 wins, which is certainly not a run of form they will be happy with.
Davie Selke will be keen to add his name to the scoresheet and build on his current scoring record of 3 goals in the last 6 league games for Cologne.
The Werder Bremen squad will be suffering from a feeling of disappointment after falling to a 2-1 home defeat against Heidenheim, which saw them drop all three points and come away from the game empty-handed. They came away from that fixture with a 65% share of the possession and clocked up 15 attempts on goal with 3 on target, in comparison to Heidenheim, who managed 11 attempts on goal, 3 of which were on target.
While they have been reasonably effective at circumventing their opponents defence, scoring 8 in their last 6 games, it's largely been tit for tat with their own defence proving to be equally ineffectual, conceding 5, and leading to valuable points being dropped. When playing away from home, they have scored in 5 of their last 6 games and are on a run of 2 consecutive clean sheets.
Werder will take some comfort from being unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 away games, but with only 2 wins there is some room for improvement.
On an individual basis, Marvin Ducksch will be looking to get on the scoresheet again having scored 3 goals in Werder Bremen's last 6 league games.
Cologne vs Werder Bremen Head to head
Cologne suffered the disappointment of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Werder Bremen the last time they met in the league.
Cologne will be looking to extend their current run of scoring against Die Werderaner having scored at least 1 goal in each of their previous 8 meetings. We have seen plenty of goals from Die Geißböcke when they play at home against Werder. In their last 3 league matches they have scored a total of 9 goals, which is an average of 3 goals per game.
On home soil Cologne have managed to keep their visitors at bay for a very long time in this league fixture, denying Werder a win against them for 11 games in a row.
Cologne manager Timo Schultz has some team selection issues to consider ahead of this match. Timo Hübers (Cold), Philipp Pentke (Back), Davie Selke (Foot), Mark Uth (Knee) and Luca Waldschmidt (Broken leg) are all currently out of contention for this game.
Werder Bremen Injury News
Ole Werner has a number of injury concerns in his Werder squad to contend with: Leonardo Bittencourt (Illness), Leon Opitz (Ligament), Jiří Pavlenka (Back), Amos Pieper (Broken ankle), Niklas Stark (Knock), Miloš Veljković (Knee) and Mitchell Weiser (Groin)
