Bundesliga: BVB wins 2-0 against Cologne

by archysport

Mats Hummels stretched his body, clenched his fists, and let out a scream as if he had just won a really big football game. Obviously, after the 2-0 (1-0) win against 1. FC Köln, the Borussia Dortmund defender was very relieved to have won one of those everyday duels with which the team had so often struggled in recent years.

Marco Rose expressed a “big compliment” to his players who, despite many failures and several minor injuries, managed to “collect points in these difficult situations and advance in the cup”. At the same time, however, Dortmund’s coach admitted: “With everything that has happened to the ball, you have to say that FC were the better team.” Only in the end did Cologne lack the luck and efficiency to make more of the flood of best opportunities .

Mark Uth even scored an early goal that didn’t count because the ball had bounced on his forearm just before he was finished (16th). After a mistake in the build-up of the game by Dortmund defender Marin Pongracic, Ondrej Duda dared a long-range shot from 45 meters, which Gregor Kobel, who was well in front of his goal, only maneuvered next to the goal with a risky rescue act (20th). And in the quarter of an hour after the break, BVB was almost overrun.

“Satisfied except for the result”

His team lost “because Dortmund scored two goals and we didn’t,” said Cologne captain Jonas Hector. It is curious that Dortmund did not concede a goal for the first time in this Bundesliga season, but this was more due to Cologne’s weakness in the end than to their own stability. Anthony Modeste alone had five promising opportunities (49th, 51st, 62nd, 68th, 86th), and Uth (55th, 57th) and Sebastian Andersson (66th) could have steered the game in a different direction . “Except for the result, I’m satisfied with a lot,” said FC coach Steffen Baumgart, “a lot of what we set out to do worked out.”
