Long present in the last 5 places in the ranking, Cologne has recovered in the right direction and asserts itself as one of the most fit teams in the Bundesliga. Anthony Modeste’s teammates have won 4 of their last 5 league games. Only Bayern managed to thwart their plans (1-4). Otherwise, they won against Freiburg (4-0), Hertha Berlin (0-5), Schalke 04 (3-0) and Paderborn (1-2) last week. On Wednesday, they face Borussia Mönchengladbach in a late match.
Opposite, Mainz keeps its head above water and occupies 15th place in the classification with 4 points more than the barrage specialist Düsseldorf. Rather irregular for a while, the Nullfünfer was notably beaten by Wolfsburg (4-0) before winning against Paderborn (2-0) and settling for a draw last weekend against Fortuna Düsseldorf ( 1-1).
