1. FC Cologne vs. FC Bayern Munich: Bundesliga NOW in the live ticker – 0:1
19th: Almost the 2:0! After a nice combination to the right of the penalty area, Pavard comes free from the baseline to the flank, finds Müller on the second post, who irresistibly prevails in a header duel – and fails on the right post.
18th: Bayern are playing as if they knew something was at stake: very nervous. Jumping balls is the keyword.
17th: Hey, in the audience the laughing Hainer and Salihamidzic are shown, while the Bayern fans sing master songs. Whether this smug laugh still flies around the ears of the two Bayern bosses?
16th: Bayern shouldn’t get too comfortable though, Cologne are now biting into the game and developing a first corner kick on the left flank. Kainz brings it to the second post, where Sommer punches the ball away.
15th: How sunny can the afternoon be for the record champions? Mainz leads in Dortmund!
13th: And then the first check moment for Munich! After a throw-in from the right, Selke beats de Ligt with a pluck on the right in the box and appears free in front of Sommer, who, however, successfully spreads. However, Jablonski had decided on an offensive foul anyway. However, the record champion should not afford to sleep.
12th: So far, FC Bayern has controlled events in Cologne: Almost 80 percent possession of the ball, the only chance to take the lead. Nothing else has happened yet, it’s a very restrained performance by both teams.
10th: Lightning table after ten minutes: Bayern would be champions because Dortmund has not yet scored against Mainz.
9th: Significance of a Bayern tour in 2023: zero! No other team lost as many points after leading as FC Bayern Munich (13, 19 over the entire season) in the second half of the Bundesliga season. 1. FC Köln, on the other hand, scored the most points from behind (16).
1. FC Cologne vs. FC Bayern Munich: Bundesliga NOW in the live ticker – Goal FC Bayern Munich
8th: Gooooo! 1.FC Cologne – FC BAYERN MUNICH 0:1. Oh dear, Effzeh Cologne. The guests dare to go forward and are countered badly. Sane marches through the center and sets Kingsley Coman on the left in front of the penalty area. He dribbles in short steps into the starting area, hits a hook in the middle in front of Schmitz and circles his conclusion fantastically in the top right corner. Eighth goal of the season.
7th: Müller from the right side with the element of surprise, blindly plays the ball in front. And Gnabry and Coman are lurking! But Hübers was careful, no danger.
6th: 80 percent possession, zero inspiration. This is how you can summarize the first six minutes. Nervous, Bavaria?
4th: Striking, Bayern operate almost exclusively with long balls in the first few minutes. There can be no talk of playful superiority yet.
3rd: The hosts can also appear quite optimistic! 1. FC Köln have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga games (W4 D3) and scored 15 points in that period. However: The Domstadt lost the last eight Bundesliga home games against FC Bayern.
2nd: Bayern start with a lot of possession in their own penalty area and two long balls that Coman cannot reach. Cologne, on the other hand, is determined, after winning the ball for the first time, it quickly goes down the right side, Ljubicic crosses, Kainz finishes with the second contact, but shoots into the top tier.
1. FC Cologne vs. FC Bayern Munich: Bundesliga NOW in the live ticker – kick-off 1st half
1.: Let’s go, Sven Jablonski – standing in for the sick Felix Zwayer – releases the game, Bayern kicks off.
1. FC Cologne vs. FC Bayern Munich: Bundesliga NOW in the live ticker – before the start
Before start: Incidentally, the first leg marked the end of a series: Bayern Munich won nine times in a row in the league against Cologne before a long-range shot by Kimmich had to save the record champions from an embarrassing home defeat (1-1). Even if the result of the last meeting in the RheinEnergieStadion were to be repeated today (Bayern won 4-0), in the end the second leg could also mark the end of a series: when the trophy moves from Munich to Dortmund after ten years.
Before start: Baumgart will help to shape the sporting reorientation in Cologne at least this summer according to his ideas. Without captain Jonas Hector, midfield engine Ellyes Skhiri and goalkeeper Timo Horn who will leave the club – Hector is retiring while Horn and Skhiri are looking for new challenges. But now with newcomers, because the transfer ban (breach of contract when signing a youth player) was temporarily suspended yesterday.
Before start: Effzeh has no sporting worries, the Cologne team will probably end their season in 10th place (currently 42 points), there are no longer any ambitions or worries. “We have no commitments. We want to play a great game and win. As a coach, I’ve never won against Bayern. That’s what drives us,” said Steffen Baumgart, who extended his contract until 2025 a few weeks ago.
Before start: If you want to put that in perspective: For Bayern’s potential king transfer Declan Rice (24, West Ham United, defensive midfield, rating absolute world class) there is a transfer fee of around 115 million euros. Only five other Bundesliga clubs spent a three-digit transfer fee for their ENTIRE squad, 1. FC Köln, for example, paid less than 30 million euros for their team. Declan Rice would probably only have one leg for that…
Before start: Two examples make it abundantly clear what dimensions the collective total failure has reached: Although Tuchel, who had no influence on the composition of the squad and had to take over a ship that was already sinking, should only be responsible for the next season, he is already feeling the pain because of the alarming performance now accept questions about his responsibility. And even before the transfer window has opened, three-digit transfer fees and terms such as “record expenses” are already circulating on Säbener Straße.
Before start: And this analysis is as ruthless as it is necessary in order to draw the right conclusions and conclusions: If FC Bayern wants to live up to its own claim as the national industry leader and international heavyweight, serious changes are needed in the summer – even if the Munich team still wins the championship should unexpectedly fall into your lap (Bayern must win, Dortmund must not win against Mainz at the same time).
Before start: It is the lowest point in a season that began with an overestimated transfer policy, but also with a perfect start and a strong run before the Winter World Cup. And then hit the wall at record speed. Several times. Sporty, in leadership, communication and public image. “It won’t be a season that we’re happy with,” is Tuchel’s conclusion before the outcome is even known.
Before start: For such stories, the word “of all things” was invented. “Of all people” Konrad Laimer, Bayern’s designated summer signing, scored a week ago for Leipzig to make it 1-1, then the record champions collapsed again inexplicably like a house of cards and not only lost the game, but also the championship from their own hands.
Before start: At Bayern there are only three players missing from the last game of the season due to injuries: goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and the two defenders Lucas Hernandez and Alphonso Davies are still out. After the disastrous 1: 3 against RB Leipzig a week ago, the starting eleven changes to three positions: In defense, Upamecano returns to central defence, Pavard deviates to the right and Mazraoui starts on the left – Cancelo initially sits on his 29th birthday the bank. In midfield, Gravenberch is given preference over Goretzka, who may be sorted out sooner than he thought. And on the offensive, Leroy Sane pushed Musiala to the bench, which also includes Sadio Mane and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Before start: And Thomas Tuchel wants to do his part for the little miracle with this eleven (4-2-3-1): Sommer – Pavard, Upamecano, de Ligt, Mazraoui – Kimmich, Gravenberch, Coman, L. Sané, Gnabry – T. Müller .
Before start: Cologne have to do without four attackers due to injuries: Steffen Tigges, Mark Uth, Florian Dietz and Sargis Adamyan all miss the season finale. So there is a change in the starting eleven compared to the 1-1 draw against Bremen a week ago, Davie Selke returns and replaces Tigges.
Before start: Rein in the last Bundesliga match day with the Cologne starting eleven (4-2-3-1): Schwäbe – Schmitz, Hübers, Chabot, Hector – Martel, Skhiri, Ljubicic, Kainz, Maina – Selke.
Before start: Nothing has been decided yet in terms of the championship, Borussia Dortmund may have the better cards, but most likely have to win against Mainz 05 to keep FC Bayern Munich away. If Munich wins but BVB draws, FCB would be champions again. In any case, tension is guaranteed.
Before start: The whistle for kick-off in Cologne’s Rhein-Energie Stadium sounds at 3.30 p.m.
