This game could have gone well in the second division conference …
Because Cologne’s 0: 1 against Augsburg (goal: Iago / 77th) was almost nothing first class: Hardly any scoring chances, countless bad passes – a lot of struggle and cramp. And especially at the front nothing is going on! Significant: The FC needs 36 minutes for his first shot on goal by Katterbach.
The substitute striker and his Duda, who has also been converted from a midfielder into an attacker, remain otherwise completely pale. It is unclear why coach Markus Gisdol (51) leaves crowd favorite Anthony Modeste (32) on the bench until the 62nd minute despite his winning goal in the DFB Cup against Osnabrück (1-0).
So storms Cologne in the 2nd division!
And improvement is not in sight for the time being! Because top striker Sebastian Andersson (29) with knee problems is still six to eight weeks away, the Cologne offensive looks thin.
Nevertheless, according to BILD information, the FC wants to wait for the first four games (Augsburg, Freiburg, Hertha, Schalke) in January and only then decide whether in an emergency, even without sales, you still have to take the financial risk to avoid the horror scenario To prevent relegation in corona times.
It will also be difficult with the current home record: The last victory of FC in Müngersdorf was on February 29, 2020 – in a 3-0 win against Schalke!
