Hoffenheim vs Cologne Team News

Hoffenheim

Mergim Berisha, Marco John and Dennis Geiger are all listed as injured for Hoffenheim while John Brooks is suspended and won't feature in defence. Hoffenheim drew 2-2 at Wolfsburg last time out, though they were pegged back from a leading position twice in that game.

Predicted Lineup for Hoffenheim: Baumann – Kaderabek, Kabak, Akpoguma, Nsoki – Stach, Promel, Tohumcu, Kramaric – Weghorst, Beier

Cologne

Phlipp Pentke, Faride Alidou, Davie Selke, Luca Waldschmidt and Mark Uth are all in the treatment room at Cologne. The latter three in that injured quarter are all forwards and the visitors might be low on firepower in the final third on Sunday as a result.

Predicted Lineup for Cologne: Schwabe – Schmitz, Hubers, Chabot, Finkgrafe – Martel, Huseinbasic, Maina, Kainz, Adamyan – Thielmann

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch – Andrej Kramaric

Andrej Kramaric opened the scoring after just a minute when Hoffenheim beat Cologne 3-1 earlier in the campaign and the Croatian could pose a threat again in Sunday’s rematch. Kramaric has scored seven times in the Bundesliga overall this term and one of those efforts was notched in Hoffenheim’s last home game against Heidenheim.
