Kickoff! The ball rolls in the RheinEnergieStadion and so 1. FC Köln-RB Leipzig is on its way. Do the visitors advance to third place in the rankings? A draw is enough to achieve that, but the team of trainer Julian Nagelsmann wants to stay close to runner-up Borussia Dortmund.

At Borussia Mönchengladbach they had cardboard photos of supporters in part of the stands, but 1. FC Köln does things differently in the RheinEnergieStadion. The empty seats are 'filled' with football shirts and teddy bears from season ticket holders.

RB Leipzig still unbeaten since resumption
RB Leipzig is still unbeaten since the Bundesliga resumed on May 16. The team of trainer Julian Nagelsmann, however, only won one of the three games played in the spring month, from Mainz (0-5). The points had to be shared against Freiburg (1-1) and Hertha BSC (2-2). 1. FC Köln has not won a single game since the ball rolls again in the German league.

Ehizibue on the bench at 1. FC Köln
At 1. FC Köln, Kingsley Ehizibue has no starting place for the first time in two consecutive games. The 25-year-old fullback was prematurely changed on Wednesday after a red card from teammate Sebastiaan Bornauw in the match with Hoffenheim (3-1) and he has not been coming off the bank for the time being. Last summer, Ehizibue transferred from PEC Zwolle to 1. FC Köln for a transfer fee of 2 million euros.

Werner: 24 goals in 28 league matches
At RB Leipzig, of course, all attention is focused on Timo Werner. The 24-year-old striker has already scored 24 times in 28 league games and is even on the heels of Bayern's scoring machine Robert Lewandowski (29 goals) as the Bundesliga's top scorer. Werner made another hat-trick at Mainz last week. The question is whether he will also play at RB Leipzig next season, as it is said that Liverpool and Chelsea have Werner's name high on the wish list.

    Weston McKennie (Schalke 04), Jadon Sancho, Achraf Hakimi (both Borussia Dortmund) and Marcus Thuram (Borussia Mönchengladbach) may face punishment for their support yesterday in the fight against racism following the death of the black american George Floyd. The control room of the German Football Association has started an investigation into the foursome for the exercise of a political statement. Similar statements are prohibited in the German Bundesliga.

    It was also striking how Jadon Sancho celebrated his first goal. The winger took off his shirt to show a message to African American George Floyd, who was killed in the United States by police brutality. Sancho was yellow-carded. Favre could say little about the action of his pupil. "I didn't see it. I didn't hear anything on his shirt until afterwards. I don't know why he did it. I didn't see it, so I can't judge it." (2/2)

    Favre: 'We have jaded our opponent'
    Trainer Lucien Favre from Borussia Dortmund is full of praise for his team after the 1-6 victory at SC Paderborn. Remarkably, all goals fell after the break. "I didn't even make any changes at half-time. All I said is that we had to keep up this pace. Paderborn would never be able to keep up with this. We have worn out our opponent." (1/2)
