Bayern Munich would be keen to get back to winning ways and scoring form after their goalless stalemate against RB Leipzig the last time.
FC Koln secured 4-0 win over Freiburg the last time out a result that meant that they bounced back from their 5-1 loss against Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern Munich returned from their winter break in fine form and they have won all but one of their domestic games this year.
Koln is currently struggling close to the foot of the Bundesliga table. They have collected just 23 points all season and face a Bayern Munich side that is 20 points better than them.
Koln is just 6 points off the relegation zone and they cannot afford to slip further down the table even though a loss looks inevitable in this game.
Javi Martinez, Ivan Perisic, and Niklas Sule would miss this game for Bayern Munich while Koln has not major injury concerns.
