If Sunday's Rheinderby is as hard-fought on the pitch as it was off it - when Cologne and Borussia Mönchengladbach players simulated the game on FIFA 18 - then we're in for a treat.

To arrange who would represent each side in the virtual derby, both clubs played an internal final. On the Cologne side, Dominique Heintz and Jonas Hector went head to head with Thomas Kessler and Leonardo Bittencourt; for Gladbach, Nico Elvedi and Laszlo Benes took on Michael Cuisance and Denis Zakaria.
