Cologne - The noticeable discrepancy between their form on home soil and that on their travels underlines that it hasn’t all been plain sailing amongst the elite of German football for returning Traditionsverein 1. FC Köln.

bundesliga.com has assessed the performance of all 18 clubs in various areas of play over the course of the Hinrunde and ranked them in positions 1-18 accordingly. The greater the surface area on the spidergram below, the better that club has statistically performed overall in 2014/15.

Peter Stöger’s newly-promoted charges had tongues wagging after they managed to go 365 minutes without conceding at the start of the season, but have since found three points hard to come by and currently find themselves just four points off the foot of the table.
