Cologne has not lost at home yet
Modesty stole Bayer’s victory, which was believed to be for sure
Bayer Leverkusen have long been the best team in Reindeer. But then 1. FC Cole returned late to the game. Gains point gain with clear increase in performance after changing pages.
Anthony Modeste saved 1. FC Cologne with a late double from their fourth derby defeat. After a significant increase in performance in the second half, Cologne beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-2 (0-2) a week after a 0-5 applause at Hoffenheim after a two-goal deficit. As a result, FC advanced to eighth place and Leverkusen failed to continue the lead.
Patrick Schick (15th) highlighted the guests. Kareem Bellarabi (17th), who had to be replaced in the 36th minute due to injury, increased his lead 100 seconds after the first goal of the season in the emergency phase of Workfell. Modestay (63rd / 83rd) delighted Cologne Stadium.
“Our direction will not change. We want to attack from the front,” FC coach Stephen Palmcard announced, with captain Jonas Hector back in front of the derby, in the starting line – up.
Modeste suddenly has a lot of space
Initially Bayer only attacked from the front, and there were massive issues between the Cologne chains and the game of change. Cologne goalkeeper Timo Hornshik’s first shot was saved (4th). The second attempt was made by former Colonel Florian Wirtz, with a whistle concert whenever he hit the ball, next to the goal (7th).
Leverkusen turned their clear superiority into goals early on, as opposed to 1-1 on Thursday in the Europa League at Betis Sevilla. First, after a good pass in the barrel of winger Moussa Diabie, he lifted the ball past the chic horn. Then the ball landed in front of Bellarabi’s feet two minutes later and he fell into the net from close range. Again the apparent Jeremy Frimbong hit only the bar (25th).
The mood among FC fans was very restless, with annoying murmurs of ball losses and bad passes going through the stadium several times. The first dangerous action in the opponent’s penalty area was made by Hector, who failed due to regular sovereign Bayer captain Lucas Hrotecki (33rd). Approximately in return, the counter-attack should have meant an early start, but Schick negligently threw the ball too far.
After the break, Cologne launched a quick counter-attack from Leverkusen, who was against Hornwirtz (62nd). Modeste then, standing completely free, re-created the tension in the long post and hit back, releasing new strength to the final point.
