Draw @ 11/4 with William Hill

It was a long-expected shake-up but a shake-up nonetheless at Borussia Dortmund on deadline day with one star leaving and another arriving. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang departed for Arsenal four and a half years after arriving at Dortmund from St. Etienne.

He left under a cloud, his behaviour leaving Dortmund without any other choice but to sell their unruly star. Still, as sporting director Michael Zorc put it, the unpleasant events of recent weeks shouldn’t spoil what is ultimately a huge success story. Aubameyang banged in 141 goals in 213 outings for BVB.

Arsenal were so desperate to sign the Gabonese star that they even reportedly helped  Dortmund find and finance a replacement. The Gunners allegedly coughed up more than £1 million for Michy Batshuayi’s loan fee. The Belgian has left Chelsea to spend the rest of the season trying to help Dortmund secure a Champions League spot. First, they have to remember how to secure a win. Post-winter break Dortmund are a magnet for draws.

Three successive stalemates leave Dortmund sixth in the stupidly-tight race for European places in the Bundesliga. A win against Cologne could bring them back to second place but the relegation-battlers are one of the league’s form teams. This fixture sees Dortmund boss Peter Stoger returning to his former club for the first time since they fired him back in December.
