Die Arminen lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich last weekend, but it was a good performance considering how much the champions dominated the stats.
But manager Frank Kramer was discontented with his side's wayward finishing as they mustered eight shots in the game but failed to register a single one of them on target.
Koln, however, thrashed top side Borussia Monchengladbach 4-1 at home for their biggest victory of the season.
Dejan Ljubicic, Mark Uth, Ondrej Duda and Sebastian Andersson all scored in a riotous second half as Jonas Hoffman's equalizer went in vain.
