FC Köln and Werder Bremen will both be looking to restart the Bundesliga seasons this weekend with a victory. Both sides currently sit mid-table, and their results over the next couple of weeks will determine whether they will be dragged into a relegation battle or competing for a minor European spot.

Bundesliga Preview

It wasn’t the perfect start to the season for FC Köln, but it also wasn’t the worst. They come into this first round of fixtures following the World Cup break in 13th place, but they suffered four defeats in five before the pause in play. The German side currently sits four points off the relegation spots, but they could get involved in the scramble for a European finish if they can pick up a few consecutive wins. 

Köln will certainly be hoping that they are harder to break down after the break, as they conceded 29 goals in 15 games over the opening months. That gives them the third-worst defensive record in the German top-flight. Before the break, they were easily beaten 2-0 by Hertha Berlin.

Meanwhile, Werder Bremen would have been delighted with the opening months of the season that they enjoyed. They recorded six wins from 15 games, and suffered just six defeats. That left them sitting ninth in the standings when the World Cup got underway, just four points off the Europa League places.

However, they did endure a nightmare run of results before the pause, as they suffered two straight defeats. The latest of those losses came in November, as they were beaten 2-1 at home by RB Leipzig. But, they warmed up for the return to action with a decent 1-0 pre-season win against Schalke.
