Competition : Germany -1.Bundesliga
Time / Date : 19:00h / 25 February 2018
Venue : Red Bull Arena
Ralph Hasenhüttl trembles to the last minute whether his team will be able to hold Napoli , in first leg in Neapol they manage to win with 1:3 and they make the mistake to give Napoli a chance to score 2 goals as a guest.
But at the end they reach next round with away goals and that is important for them.
In Bundesliga they lose last game against Frankfurt and dropped to 5th place with same points as 4th Leverkusen(38pts) and 1 behind Frankfurt.
Now they have to clear their head and to think about the match with Cologne,in home they are unbeaten in last 3 games with two wins and one draw ,their main problems is that they lose points at home against weak team from bottom they make draw with Mainz 05 (16th) and Hamburger SV(17th).
Stefan Ruthenbeck has been leading a team since December 10th since then Cologne have 3 wins ,2 draws and 4 loses and can not move from the last place.
Before he came to the team there was only three draws and all loses , and now all we see the improvment and they have small chance to save from relegation with 9 points from 15th in the standing Werder Bremen.

Leipzig is unbeaten against this opponent and in all three meetings both team scored at least one goals.
