Germany: Cologne thrash red lantern Hertha and rise to 10th place

Cologne thrashed this Friday against Hertha, by 5-2, in the 32nd round of the German I League, and rose to 10th place, while the Berlin team continues to be the last placed in the competition.

The goals began to appear very early, with striker Davie Selke putting Cologne in front of the scoreboard, at eight minutes, but Hertha’s response came 10 minutes later, at 18, by the French midfielder Luxas Tousart.

Hertha would not stop there, who turned the score around in the 33rd minute, through the Montenegrin striker Stevan Jovetic, but Cologne would operate the turnaround even before the break, with goals from central Timo Hubers and Tunisian midfielder Ellyes Skhiri, at 39 and 43, respectively.

In the second half, the home team definitively asserted their superiority with two more goals, once again by central Timo Hubers, who scored a ‘double’, at 69, and midfielder Denis Huseinbasic, at 81.

The victory allowed Cologne to overtake, on condition, Borussia Möenchengladbach in the leaderboard, rising to 10th place, while Hertha is in a delicate situation, with two games remaining, in last place, with 25 points, three less than that Stuttgart and Bochum, the other two teams in the relegation zone, and who have not yet played in this round.

The fight at the top of the table is also in full swing, with Bayern leading, with 65 points, followed by Borussia Dortmund, with 64.
