Match Timings: Nov 07, 1 AM 

Team Preview 

Werder Bremen are entering into this fixture after three consecutive draws, the most recent was recorded at Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. Joshua Sargent netted a fine goal in the 51st minute, but they couldn’t hold the advantage as Andre Silva scored a leveler after 14 minutes. Florian Kohfeldt's side has lost just one of their first six matches in Germany’s top flight and occupies a top half position. 

Koln, meanwhile, found themselves in the relegation zone and recently lost to Bayern 2-1 at home. The intent can encourage Markus Gisdol's side after giving some scar in the second half. After going down 2-0 in the first half, Koln created opportunities in the 2nd half but failed to convert into the goal. In the 82nd minute, Dominick Drexler scored the first goal for the hosts. In the last-minute, Koln almost got the equaliser with Tolu Arokodare's header from a corner, but Manuel Neuer saved this. Cologne has only lost one match by more than one goal this season. 

In the previous season, Werder humiliated Koln by 6-1 to avoid automatic relegation. The hosts have also won two of their last three meetings against Cologne. At home, they have only lost once out of 15 matches in Bundesliga.
