Pre-match facts: VfB vs. 1. FC Köln

Facts and figures on VfB’s final Bundesliga game of the campaign at home to 1. FC Köln at 15:30 CEST on Saturday.

Record against Köln

Overall: 101 games, 35 wins, 25 draws, 41 defeats, 163:161 goal difference
In the Bundesliga: 91 games, 30 wins, 25 draws, 36 defeats, 149:146 goal difference

Trigger-happy Köln

The Billy Goats don’t take much persuading to go for goal, registering 449 attempts over the course of the current campaign.

Defensive bulwark

Köln have conceded just four goals from crosses this season – fewer than any other team in the league.

Danger man

Thirty-four-year-old striker Anthony Modeste has proved a thorn in VfB’s side in recent years, scoring six goals in his last seven appearances against the boys from Cannstatt in all competitions.

Play-offs or outright safety?

VfB’s primary focus this weekend is on their own game, but if Borussia Dortmund win against fellow strugglers Hertha BSC – whose goal difference is vastly inferior – Pellegrino Matarazzo’s charges can secure their Bundesliga status for next season with victory against Köln.

Lucky charm

VfB will be sporting their new 1992 edition kit.
