Follow a disappointing UEFA Champions League defeat in London in midweek, Borussia Dortmund turn their attention to the Bundesliga once more on Sunday as they welcome Koln to Signal-Iduna-Park.

Dortmund play host to Koln for a Matchday 4 encounter still reeling from their 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in their Group H clash at Wembley on Wednesday night. Andriy Yarmolenko (11') had cancelled out Son Heung-min fourth minute opener but a Harry Kane brace (15', 60') sealed the deal for Spurs as they joined group leaders Real Madrid, who beat Apoel Nicosia 3-0 in Spain, on three points. 

The outcome of the contest may have been different, however, had Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not had a perfectly good goal ruled out for offside and it should be noted that they were hampered by an injury crisis going into the game that denied them the use of a number players, including Marco Reus, Raphael Guerreiro, Andre Schurrle and captain Marcel Schmelzer.

Evidently England is not a happy hunting ground for BVB, though, as they have lost on seven of their past 10 visits to the country, which includes a 2-1 Champions League final defeat at Wembley in 2013.

The Yellow-Blacks had travelled to London as Bundesliga and have an opportunity to head into Matchday 6 at the top of the table by returning to winning ways here. The hosts boast a one point lead over title rivals Bayern Munich after the Bavarians were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Hoffenheim last weekend.

BVB, who are level on seven points with Hoffenheim and Hannover at the head of the standings, were themselves held to a goalless stalemate by Freiburg but remain unbeaten in the league and boast the best goal difference (+5) going into this round of fixtures.

Worryingly for Dortmund, they haven't beaten Sunday's opponents since 2012 with four draws and two defeats in their last six outings with the Billy Goats but they will take confidence from the fact the Koln have endured a miserable start to the campaign with three defeats in a row leaving them propping up the Bundesliga table.

Koln were felled by Augsburg (3-0) last time out and have conceded six in their last two league outings so should be ripe for the picking given Dortmund's attacking prowess.
