Aiming to snap their five-game losing streak, Wolfsburg play host to FC Koln at the Volkswagen Arena on Tuesday.

The visitors' five-game unbeaten run came to an end in their last Bundesliga outing and they will be looking to bounce back to winning ways.

Wolfsburg were left empty handed once again as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Stuttgart last Saturday.

Florian Kohfeldt’s men have now failed to pick up a point from any of their last five games, while they are winless in each of their last seven.

With 20 points from 15 games, Wolfsburg are currently 10th on the log, level on points with Bochum.

Meanwhile, Koln’s unbeaten run came to an end last time out as they suffered a 2-0 home loss against Augsburg.

Prior to that, Steffen Baumgart’s men were unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions, claiming two wins and three draws in that time.

Koln are currently one point and one place behind Tuesday’s hosts on the log and will be seeking to immediately return to winning ways to move into the top half of the table.
