Hoffenheim vs FC Koln build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

A 4-0 win away at Augsburg on the opening day proved to be something of a false dawn for Hoffenheim, who have won just one of their six games since and sit 11th in the table. Die Kraichgauer lost 3-1 to Stuttgart last time out but no side in the bottom 10 has scored more goals (12), so they still cannot be taken lightly.

Koln, meanwhile, have lost just one of their opening seven matches, winning three and drawing three to push themselves right into the early race for European places. Steffen Baumgart’s men beat Furth 3-1 last time out, ending a run of three consecutive stalemates, and they’ll hope to pick up another three points here to continue their unexpected push toward the top of the Bundesliga.

  • Hoffenheim (vs Stuttgart): Baumann; Kaderabek, Richards, Vogt, Raum; Geiger, Samassekou, Grillitsch; Kramaric, Bebou, Adamyan.
  • FC Koln (vs Furth): Horn; Schmitz, Mere, Czichos, Hector; Skhiri; Kainz, Duda, Uth; Modeste, Andersson.
