Bayern Munich face Cologne

Share |

Bayern Munich host Cologne on Saturday, and they expect to have Michael Ballack back after a small injury. The red team hold a nine-point lead with seven games to play and can take another big stride towards a 20th league title this weekend, with second-placed Hamburg SV facing a tough game away to Schalke 04 on Sunday.

With the title looking a formality, attention in Germany is now focused on who Bayern will sign to replace Michael Ballack, in case he moves to another club.

Ballack will be back on the field after his recovery from a groin injury. Oliver Kahn should also be fit after being forced off 12 minutes into last weekend's 3-1 win over Duisburg.

With Bayern Munich so far ahead, the best Hamburg, Werder Bremen and Schalke appear to be struggling for is second place and direct place for the Champions League.
