1. FC Köln will host TSG Hoffenheim on Friday night (20:30) at the RheinEnergieSTADION. Preparations are fully underway as FC look to bounce back from a disappointing result in Augsburg. Missing in training on Tuesday were the injured trio of Marcel Risse (knee), Sehrou Guirassy (adductor), and Simon Zoller (thigh).
FC Head Coach Peter Stöger provides his thoughts after training: "We have had a few more individual errors. We are playing higher up the pitch now than we did two seasons ago, which has also resulted in us scoring more goals. But I don't want to make excuses. In a team sport you will have phases that test your development and confidence."
The training sessions on Wednesday and Thursday will be closed to the public.
