Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich will be looking to bounce back from a shock defeat when they travel to face FC Koln on Saturday at 2:30pm (UK time).
The defending German champions returned from the winter break in losing fashion last weekend, beaten 2-1 by Borussia Monchengladbach and saw their lead at the top of the table cut down to six points. They could go into this match just three points ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund who play on Friday night and this won’t be a cakewalk. Hosts Koln are sitting on the periphery of the top four, just two points behind fourth-placed Freiburg with three consecutive wins going into this match.
