The league leaders are back in action in the Bundesliga this weekend with Bayern Munich set to welcome Koln to the Allianz Arena in what is the club’s first competitive home game since before the World Cup.
Bayern remain top of the German top flight once more after a dodgy start to the league campaign saw them down in fifth after a few weeks of action. The 32-time champions are on course for 11 in a row now after losing just one game.
Last time out, Bayern drew 1-1 with RB Leipzig as Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting got another goal in what is turning out to be a sensational season for him in replace of Robert Lewandowski.
The gap at the top of the table for Julian Nagelsmann’s men is now five points with Union Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt and Freiburg all just behind them on 30 points each.
As for Koln, they are in 11th after a stunning 7-1 demolition over Werder Bremen. Linton Maina scored the game’s first goal that day before braces from Ellyes Skhiri and Steffen Tigges.
Denis Huseinbasic scored later on before an own goal sealed Koln’s biggest victory in the Bundesliga over the past decade.
