Fortuna's impressive run of form continues, as after just one win in their first four games in 2018 (1-2-1 3/3), Uwe Koschinat's men have recorded five consecutive victories in the last five rounds (5-0-0 11/1), reviving their chances for promotion to the German 2. Bundesliga at the end of the season (four points behind leaders Paderborn and second-placed Magdeburg and one point behind third-placed Karlsruher).
In addition to that, the hosts rarely make mistakes at Sudstadion, where they've recorded nine victories and lost just twice in fourteen games since the beginning of the new campaign (9-3-2 22/9).Aaron Eichhorn (d / 1+0), Bone Uaferro (d / 6+0) and Lars Bender (m / 22+2) are out due to injuries, but Aaron Eichhorn isn't a regular starter, while Uaferro is unavailable since early September, so their absence won't be a problem for Uwe Koschinat.
Sonnenhof Grossaspach is heading in completely different direction, as after a relatively good first half to the season, the guests have won just two points from their previous eight games in 2018 (0-2-6 6/17) and fell in the lower half of the standings (16th place / 9-6-13 35/45).In the matter of fact, Sascha Hildmann's side still has a comfortable ten-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone, but the guests continue to struggle mightily on the road, where they've recorded five consecutive defeats in their last five games against Magdeburg (0-3), Zwickau (0-2), Aalen (1-4), Osnabruck (1-2) and Karlsruher on March 7 (1-3).Pascal Sohm (m / 17+2), Alexander Aschauer (f / 9+1) and Saliou Sane (f / 26+6) will miss the visit in Cologne due to injuries.
Fortuna Koln is obviously in a much better shape than Sonnenhof Grossaspach and I think that the hosts will manage to win three points from today's match.
