Cologne (AP) - Friedhelm Funkel makes three changes in his second game as coach of 1. FC Cologne compared to his unsuccessful debut at Bayer Leverkusen (0: 3).
All three changes for the game against the table runner-up RB Leipzig concern the offensive.
For Florian Kainz, Max Meyer and Emmanuel Dennis, Dominick Drexler, Elvis Rexhbecaj and probably Ondrej Duda, who is yellow-banned in Leverkusen, will start.
Funkels colleague Julian Nagelsmann changed his team to five positions compared to the 0-0 draw on Friday against Hoffenheim: Amadou Haidara, Marcel Halstenberg, Lukas Klostermann, Kevin Kampl, Alexander Sörloth.
In addition to Sabitzer, Yussuf Poulsen also did not get fit in time.
