Borussia Dortmund after a thumping victory over Club Brugge in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday will now turn their attentions to league action on Saturday, with a home game against FC Koln.
The Black and Yellows are currently second on the Bundesliga table after eight games played, taking 18 points in the process, just one behind Bayern Munich.
Dortmund have lost just one of their last five league games – a 3-2 loss to Bayern earlier this month.
Against Cologne at home, Lucien Favre’s side are unbeaten in the last nine games, winning six during that period while drawing the other three.
The game over the weekend will be another chance for the home side stay with close touch of the top spot and they could go top with a win over the 17th placed team.
