Sports Mole previews the Bundesliga meeting between FC Koln and Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund travel to FC Koln in the Bundesliga this weekend looking to kickstart what has so far been a disappointing season.

Jurgen Klopp's side have lost three out of their last four games, a run of form that has seen them slump to 13th place in the league table.

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.
