Official Fantasy Bundesliga Managers take note: bundesliga.com is on hand to provide likely line-ups as well as injury and suspension news ahead of Matchday 27.
Cologne vs Eintracht Frankfurt (Tuesday 20:00CEST/18:00GMT)
Attacking midfielder Leandro Bittencourt trained with the team on Sunday but Tuesday’s match has come too soon for him. Matthias Lehmann is back from suspension however and could bolster midfield but Japanese striker Yuya Osako and Latvian frontman Artjoms Rudnevs, who has recently had sinus surgery, remain out.
Watch: Highlights of the reverse fixture on Matchday 10:
US international Timothy Chandler is suspended and his absence could provide a way back into the starting eleven for Haris Seferovic. The Eagles have gone three games without a goal and the Swiss attacker was praised by Eagles boss Niko Kovac for his contribution as a second-half sub in the 0-0 draw against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Attacking midfielder Danny Blum is over a stomach bug but will not be risked on Tuesday.
