Modeste wasn't ruled out of the game by Köln coach Steffen Baumgart at the pre-match press conference this morning, but the German tabloid claims he will miss out due to illness.
Whether the French forward has contracted coronavirus is currently unclear.
"The Billy Goats" will also have to manage without new signing Julian Chabot, but Ellyes Skhiri will be back after his involvement at the Africa Cup of Nations.
