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 7.
Alarm bells are ringing for 1. FC Köln forward Anthony Modeste after the striker suffered an ankle knock in training. Although the French marksman – a scorer of five goals in six Bundesliga games this season – said the injury wasn't serious, coach Peter Stöger is nonetheless readying possible alternatives such as Artjoms Rudnevs, Simon Zoller and Sehrou Guirassy.
Should FC Ingolstadt 04 coach Markus Kauczinski opt for a more attacking formation against Köln, USMNT midfielder Alfredo Morales could make an appearance in midfield. Elsewhere, the Bavarians boast a clean bill of health for their visit to the RheinEnergieStadion.
FC Köln possible line-up: Horn - Sörensen, Mavraj, Heintz, Rausch - Lehmann, Hector - Risse, Bittencourt - Modeste, Osako
Coach: Peter Stöger
FC Ingolstadt 04 possible line-up: Nyland - Levels, Matip, Tisserand, Suttner - Groß, Roger, Cohen - Leckie, Lezcano, Hartmann
Coach Markus Kauczinski
