Köln are 4 games without a win but are coming in on the back of draws against 3rd and 4th place Hoffenheim and Dortmund, which will give them confidence. Werder Bremen is still unbeaten in their last 11 games, after a comfortable win against Hertha. This game will be decisive in the race for the european spots with Bremen 3 points ahead. The last three games will all be finals, for the teams in the battle, but this is the first and could potentially eliminate the first contender.
