Koln are also in poor form, losing their last three matches on the spin and shipping six goals across those games, leaving them a point behind Dortmund in 14th place.
As Koln were only promoted to the top flight last season, these two teams have not met since the 2011-12 season in a match where Dortmund triumphed 6-1.
A win for Dortmund could move them up to eighth if other results go their way, while three points for Koln would propel them into the top half of the table.
Possible starting lineups
Koln: Horn, Wimmer, Hector, Brecko, Maroh, Risse, Osako, Halfar, Vogt, Lehmann, Ujah
Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Durm, Sokratis, Hummels, Schmelzer ,Bender, Kehl, Aubameyang, Grosskreutz, Kagawa, Ramos
Sports Mole says: 1-2
