Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Even though Koln have hit rock bottom in the Bundesliga table, their recent form proves they should not be underestimated. They have three wins, one draw and one loss, which has been quite the achievement for them following a poor start of the season.

Frankfurt are taking the 6th position in the German top-flight, just two points behind second-placed Bayer Leverkusen.

The ‘Billy Goats’ (Koln), however, have to bounce back as they enter the game on the back of a 3-2 loss to indifferent Borussia Dortmund.

Regardless of the fact that there is a 20-point difference between the two sides, Frankfurt have gathered just 2 points more than Koln in their last five games… Could Koln surprise everyone and upset Eintracht, or will the home side just hit Koln’s hopes of survival?

Players to watch: Sebastian Haller is Frankfurt’s top scorer with 8 goals so far this season. He has scored two of them in the last 5 games and will certainly look to extend his tally against Koln.

Guirassy Sehrou is the leader in attack for Koln. He has managed to find the back of the net four times and has also made two assists. The Frenchman will try to take advantage of the situation and utilize on the shaky defense of Frankfurt.
