1. FC Köln defeated Nijmegen clearly



Steffen Baumgart is said to be about to extend his contract

1. FC Köln convincingly won their last test of preparation. Coach Steffen Baumgart’s team defeated the Dutch first division club NEC Nijmegen 5-0 (2-0) in Troisdorf, spectators were not allowed.

Ondrej Duda (21′) with a penalty kick, Linton Maina (40′), Sargis Adamyan (47′) and Tim Lemperle (75’/79′) ensured FC victory.

“We’re using the test to try out a few things. The team won’t be the one that will play against Regensburg,” Baumgart said before the match.

The Cologne side, who are playing for a place in the European Cup in the Conference League play-offs in August, will be playing their first competitive game on July 30: the first-round duel in the DFB Cup is against second-division side Jahn Regensburg. In the league, things start on August 7th against newly promoted Schalke 04.
