The Bundesliga returns this weekend and will see Koln host Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday evening in the 23rd game week of the German top-flight.

Koln were beaten 3-1 by the recently rejuvenated RB Leipzig in their last game. Despite limiting the opponents to just six shots all game, the Billy Goats could not match the clinical finishing of RB Leipzig and ultimately fell to defeat.

Koln sit eighth in the Bundesliga table with 32 points from 22 games. They will be looking to return to winning ways this weekend as they continue their tight battle for European football.

Like their hosts, Eintracht Frankfurt suffered defeat in their last game, losing 2-0 to Wolfsburg. It was a particularly tough day at the office for centre-back Martin Hinteregger as he was culpable for both goal concessions which ultimately sealed the visitors' third loss in five games.

Eintracht Frankfurt sit 10th in the league table, one point behind their weekend hosts, and will be looking to leapfrog them in the table with a win on Saturday.
