Ehizibue Eyes 5th Bundesliga Start,  Arokodare Targets Return In Cologne Vs Wolfsburg

Kingsley Ehizibue will be looking to make his fifth start in what will be his eighth Bundesliga appearance for FC Cologne this season against Wolfsburg at home today (Saturday).

Ehizibue has started four of seven Bundesliga matches for the struggling Cologne in the ongoing 2020/21 campaign from which the defender has one assist and three yellow cards.


The Nigerian duo of Tolu Arokodare and Ehizibue had contrasting fortunes last Saturday when Cologne beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 to get their first Bundesliga win this term.

Ehizibue replaced Jan Thielmann as late as the 90th minute of the game at the Signal Iduna Park, but compatriot, Arokodare, was only good enough for the substitutes’ bench.

Arokodare who is on loan from Valmieras FK after registering 15 goals and two assists in 16 Latvian Higher League games last term has not started a league tie for Cologne.

The lanky striker will be hoping to make a return for the Billy Goats in their German top-flight encounter with Wolfsburg at the RheinEnergieStadion even as a substitute.

Cologne moved out of the bottom three with a shock win at Dortmund last weekend and host Wolfsburg with the in-form visitors looking to move into the top four with a win.
