After dropping points for the first since the World Cup break, Borussia Dortmund are looking for a return to the win column with them playing hosts to Koln at Signal Iduna Park.
BVB drew in a local derby with Schalke after taking a lead on two occasions thanks to a first half finish from Nico Schlotterbeck, just as Raphael Guerreiro scored in the second 45.
It ended a run of nine wins in a row for Dortmund in Germany, although they did also lose to 2-0 Chelsea in the Champions League to make it a draw and a loss in the past two games since beating RB Leipzig 2-1 at home.
Regardless, the Black and Yellow are still only behind Bayern Munich by two points in the Bundesliga and sit above RB Leipzig and Union Berlin by five points.
Koln lost at the RheinEnergieSTADION to Bochum last time out in what is one of their worst results of the season. After also drawing with Union Berlin and losing to Wolfsburg and Stuttgart, it means four games without a win.
