Cologne coach Olaf Janssen made three changes to his team compared to the 1-0 win against Waldhof Mannheim. Goalkeeper Moritz Nicolas is absent and will be replaced by Elias Bördner.

TSV 1860 Munich has not yet kicked off much in 2022. The Munich Lions have only played one league game, which they won 3-2 against SV Wehen Wiesbaden. Accordingly, the club is again in the middle of the league with three games less than leaders Magdeburg. There are currently 32 points on the Munich account. The club itself probably doesn’t know what to do with it. Third place is eight points away, but this could be made up with a strong series. A win against Cologne would be a good start. Most recently, 1860 Munich was allowed to play in the round of 16 of the cup, but unfortunately lost the game 0-1. So now the focus is fully on the league.
Viktoria Köln can look back on a flawless start to 2022 after the previous year ended with three defeats in a row. The Cologne team already won a test match against Borussia Mönchengladbach during the winter break and confirmed this performance in the league. After the canceled Zwickau match, Viktoria defeated SC Verl 5:2. Five days ago, the team was able to beat promotion candidate Waldhof Mannheim 1-0 with an extremely experienced performance. The Cologne team is currently in 13th place in the table and still has to keep an eye on the relegation zone. A win could extend the lead to nine points.
