Bayer Leverkusen will be hoping for a vital away win on Sunday evening when they visit FC Köln to either enter into the top 4 or cement their place in the 5th position depending on the outcome of other games.
Leverkusen has improved so far as they are unbeaten in their last 4 games and on a 3-game winning streak, and they hope to keep the good form against Köln.
Köln being in 11th position will be relinquishing the idea of going above 10th place with a home win should other teams slip.
- FC Köln have lost 4 of their last 5 home games in Bundesliga.
- Leverkusen have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 Bundesliga matches.
