Tuesday's win marked an end to two winless games for the hosts.

Koln picked up a dramatic 3-2 win last time out and have now lost just once in their last six games. Half of those games have ended in draws as they currently have the joint-most draws in the division.

VfB Stuttgart's run of three games without defeat came to an end last time out. They have won just once on the road all season. Their poor away form could see them suffer defeat on Sunday.
