Köln came through their toughest test of the season just before the international break, holding leaders FC Bayern München to a draw at the Allianz Arena. Having picked up an impressive 12 points in six outings, Peter Stöger's side will now be looking to prove that they are the real deal. It will certainly help to have the on-fire Anthony Modeste in their ranks – the Frenchman is one of the Bundesliga's joint-top scorers with five goals in six games.

If the early part of the season has been memorable for Köln, it has been entirely forgettable for Ingolstadt. Saturday's visitors to the RheinEnergieSTADION have only scraped a single point from their first six matches, back on the opening day against Hamburger SV. Coach Markus Kauczinski needs to start picking up points, and fast, but that will be easier said than done against the in-form Billy Goats.

A familiar sight for Köln fans this season: Anthony Modeste in celebration.
