Debacle in Cologne: Hertha BSC faces relegation from the Bundesliga

1. FC Cologne won the opening game of the 32nd round of the German Bundesliga 5-2 against Hertha BSC on Friday and shot the Berliners further towards relegation.

Cologne turned a 1-2 deficit into a brilliant victory. FC is tenth with 41 points, but the lights are slowly going out for bottom team Hertha (25).

Davie Selke had given Cologne the lead against his former club (8th), then the Berliners briefly turned the game around with goals from Lucas Tousart (18th) and Stevan Jovetic (33rd). At the break the hosts were already back in front: Timo Hübers after a free kick from Kainz (39th) and Ellyes Skhiri (43rd) scored for the “Billy Billy Goats”.

In the second half, Hübers (69th) and Denis Huseinbasic (81st) made everything clear. With only two league games remaining, Herthan's chances decrease enormously. The Berliners are dependent on mistakes from the competition.
