Cologne – Leipzig (2-4), Leipzig back on the podium

At the end of the 29th day of the German championship, Leipzig easily dominated Cologne on Monday.

RB Leipzig returned to the Bundesliga podium on Monday and came victorious from his duel against Cologne. Against 11th place in the table, the Nagelsmann team missed their opening game, but then recovered well and easily won by four goals.

Timo Werner, the team’s top scorer, struck again. At the beginning of the second period, and with a pass from … his goalkeeper, the German international went to plant his 25th performance of the exercise. She was precious because she allowed her to escape the score (1-3). During the first period, Cordoba opened the brand to locals (7th) before Patrick Schick (20th) and Frenchman Christopher Nkunku (38th) answered him.

Modeste took the jump back to Cologne

Despite a two-goal delay, Cologne had not yet given up completely. The locals have picked up on the beast thanks to his French striker, Anthony Modeste. The former Bordeaux player hit the target with a very good shot outside the area (55 ‘). To celebrate this victorious cannon shot, he paid tribute to George Floyd and expressed his support for the cause that is currently mobilizing the entire planet. Instead of kneeling (and facing disciplinary action), he showed both sides of his hands.

Cologne recovered, but Cologne could not have hoped for long. Two minutes later, Leipzig resumed its lead with two goals and finally ended the fate of the debates. Dani Olmo made the difference. Quite disappointed since his arrival in Germany, the Spaniard came out of his box by hitting a shot to the right as he entered the area. The victory was then in the pocket for RBL. The final minutes then went by without a highlight, if we exclude a face-to-face missed by Modeste in front of Gulacsi (87th).
