AAt the end of a crazy game, the two coaches take a deep breath: while the fans celebrate that no one is loud, Stephen Bangart and Jesse Marsh fall into each other’s arms, not knowing what to expect. The wild game and the result must be maintained.
In a crazy game of lost goals, Rosenballsport Leipzig avoided the next defeat. The Saxons came up with a fast game. RB is nine points behind defending champions FC Bayern Munich alongside former coach Julian Nagelsmann.
Aggressive and exciting game
The FC, which was only saved in the relegation last year, on the other hand, settled first at the top of the table and finally caused a stir in the cathedral city under new football teacher Stephen Bangart. With the fourth goal of the season (54th), Cologne took the lead again with Anthony Modeste.
25,000 spectators, including national coach Hansie Flick, watched the aggressive and inspiring game with two post shots and four stripped meetings. However, the two were evenly distributed between the two teams. It was just a great football game, “said Cologne coach Bangart excitedly:” It may be different, but I’m happy. “
Leipzig got off to a strong start – and so did Cologne
The Leipzig team in particular had a strong start, especially Christopher Enkungu, who was a big ray of hope in the disappointing 3-6 midweek at Manchester City. After the Frenchman ran 80 meters, Andre Silva passed the ball from Hungary to Dominique Soboslay, who scored but was offside with one foot (5). Three minutes later, Enkungu arrived at the post after another strong solo from 20 yards.
Cologne under Bangart actually tried to buy the opponent’s margins quickly, briefly impressed and soon began his own offensive operations. Ten minutes later, after Andrej Duda’s volley shot, the post only blocked their lead, which is a must see.
But for the most part, RB pressed. Due to Sobozlai (18th) failing for Timo Horn with just one freekick. Rafael Cichos shifted his shot from 20 meters to an angle (25). Sichos was threatened with yellow-red-extinction but left half an hour later. The FC then scored their first offside goal, placing Modeste in the restricted area before Mark Uthin (37) passed.
Hydara opposes the Cologne tour through Modoste
The 0-0 break that gave both teams the offensive power was actually a joke. Soon after the change, it went much faster. Duda lost to Leipzig’s Lucas Klostermann (48), Rasenballsport Leipzig’s goalkeeper and Peter Gulasi (49), and Modesta expanded after the next corner. The French then scored twice, but initially not because of an offside position (50th) and then because of a foul (54th). But more than two minutes after learning the video images, referee Felix Breich realized: no foul, but finally the first goal.
RB now increased the pressure and Emil Forsberg quickly rejoiced when he scored six minutes later. But Sweden has been on the sidelines before. “It hurts when it’s tight,” Forsberg said. “But it’s football.” Another four minutes later, when Hydara opened a Soboslay corner from three meters, there was no opposition. In the final stages a strong Cologne goalkeeper horn prevented a possible Leipzig victory through several parades. “The boys put up a great fight and deserve this point,” Horn said.
But in the last minute of stoppage time (90 + 3), Leipzig were lucky again: Anderson was not attacked by the Leipzig back team, and Leipzig goalkeeper Gulaksi was shot. Ricochet lands in front of the feet of Duda, who does not put the ball into the goal. The end of the fast game.
