1. FC Cologne – Eintracht Frankfurt 1: 0: Joker Modeste brings Cologne to Europapokal

Late salvation by Joker Anthony Modeste: The French striker has shot the 1st FC Cologne in the fight for international business into an enormous victory.

From the boxes, five days ago, Altweiber Karnevalsmusik boomed, when Matchwinner Anthony’s modestests went to the honorary round with his teammates. Thanks to the 15th goal of the Joker, the 1st FC Cologne celebrated a 1-0 (0: 0) success against Eintracht Frankfurt and thus dreams of Europe.

“It’s going to be with me. So we’ll be going on. We have to stay tuned, but can enjoy it. The last season was very difficult, but you have to have fun in life,” Todeste said at SKY and pushed laughing after: “Kölle Alaaf! “

The Frenchman, which is currently greeted by a Corona infection, shot the Rhine countries with his gate in the 84th minute at least until Sunday evening ranked six. Frankfurt follows with four counters less on tenth place.

“Modeste has a science and roves the – and now he will be born again for a week by Cologne,” gave SGE coach Oliver Glasner and honored with the final weakness of his team: “The fact is that we are in the last four games except in Stuttgart did not hit. We have to arrive that we do not have these finish qualities. “

In addition to modests, Timo Horn was also pubed by the fans. The longtime Stamenkeeper represented Marvin Schwäbe, who was missing because of a positive coronate test, and remained without goal.

Cologne had failed in the evening with an urgent application for the increase in viewer capacity. The FC wanted to leave at least 25,000 fans in the arena and relied on his effective hygiene concepts. However, the Münster Upper Administrative Court refused the application, and FC had no success before the Constitutional Court of North Rhine-Westphalia.

So only 10,000 spectators were allowed on Saturday – and they saw a sweeping start of the FC. Cologne moved up early his usual pressing and won some balls. But the first chance had Frankfurt. Sebastian Rodes Shot (9th) was blocked at Jonas Hector at the last moment.

Edeljoker modest beats for Cologne late

After that, however, mainly the FC came to dangerous degrees. Dejan Ljubicic (17th) failed to Kevin Trapp, also Sebastian Andersson (25.), who began for modests, did not pass the Frankfurt goalkeeper. Salih Özcan (26th) headed nearly the gate.

Horn initially had little to do, often the attentive defensive for the weekly defensive chief Timo Hübers started the balls before it could be dangerous. Also Cologne was not so imperative as it was still at the beginning.

This also changed nothing in the second round. Double fights and intense duels shaped the game, chances were barely there. Accordingly, cheers branded, as a modest event finally came to the field in the 61st minute. Seconds Previously, Mark Uth (60.) had tested Einacht Keeper Trapp from pointed angle.

With modests, more momentum came back to the Cologne attack game, but the precision was still missing. After a cross of Ljubicic, modests brought out to the Goal Shot, but Frankfurt Tuta decisively steered the cross.

Frankfurt seemed to be satisfied with the draw and largely limited to the defensive. The rooms, which offered themselves after ball gains and again, did not use the guests at first – the punished modest.
