Borussia Dortmund host FC Koln in a Bundesliga match at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday evening, as they look to keep pace with league leaders Bayern Munich.

Dortmund have bounced back really well from the loss to Bayern Munich before the international break with two convincing wins to follow that up.

They beat Hertha Berlin 5-2 in the Bundesliga last weekend, before a 3-0 UEFA Champions League victory against Club Brugge on Tuesday night.

Koln are yet to win a Bundesliga game this season, with just three draws from their eight games so far.

They are in 17th spot in the Bundesliga table, with only Schalke 04 below them in the standings. Koln lost 2-1 to Union Berlin in Bundesliga action last weekend.
