FC Koln could close the current gap on the top four, when they face off against RB Leipzig on Saturday. Their current position in the Bundesliga standings naturally favours RB Leipzig, but FC Koln won't be short on motivation.

Looking at the Bundesliga standings, the current difference between the sides is 13 points and nine places.

FC Koln enter the match this coming Saturday hoping to narrow the gap in the Bundesliga table on opponents RB Leipzig. Naturally, the favourites will attempt to widen the gap between the teams below them and aim for the very top of the table.

FC Koln scored 15 goals, conceded 21 and fought their way to one clean sheet in their previous ten matches.

RB Leipzig are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 26 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 2.6 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of 12 goals, and while RB Leipzig claimed one clean sheets, they conceded an average of 1.2 goals per match.

Their latest encounter was a belter of a game, which finished with a 2-2 scoreline. An uncommon result, but we would not mind a similar goal fest on Saturday.
