Köln (dpa) - the people of Düsseldorf, there was a crisis meeting in the cabin. The Cologne from clapped after their furious comeback in the final minutes of cheerful with the elbow.
Joker Anthony Modeste (88.) and Jhon Cordoba (90.+1) prevented the 2:2 (0:1) on Sunday, the second defeat of the 1. FC Köln this season against the local rivals. "We have taken time to digest it," said Fortuna düsseldorf's coach Uwe Rösler. "It was important that we say clearly to each other the opinion that it is so for the umpteenth Time not more can not go, that we reward ourselves for good games."
"The point for us is worth Gold in the current Situation, where everything moves in the League," said Cologne coach Markus Gisdol praised the reaction of his team after the 0:2.

"Maybe we were too confident," said düsseldorf's Kenan Karaman said: "It feels like a defeat. We are not allowed to herschenken the game. So it is not allowed to go further. We must also address time-critical." Shortly after the final whistle, it was not to the extent that: We are playing like a Relegated, we play good football. But we have told us clearly of the opinion that what has happened in the last six minutes."
Karaman with his fourth goal in the last four Games (41.) and already in the first leg 2:0 successful Erik Thommy (61.) had brought the actually significantly better Fortuna seemingly clear on the road to victory. Goalkeeper Florian Kasten Meier parried a foul penalty Mark Uth (59.). "When you shoot a penalty kick, then one is thankful for. The guys have helped me out of the shit," said Uth.

His colleague Uwe Rösler had to do without the suspended defender Kaan Ayhan, made three further changes and switched from three to four. The guests were stable. And they were the more active team. The Turkish national player Karaman was after the deposition of Steven Skzybski successfully, Toni Leistner faked his shot is indefensible for the Horn.
After the break, Cologne was at least a little more active, the Chance to compensate for the otherwise unerring Uth, however, was a double lie. First of all, the Schalke on loan, which was involved in each of the previous eight games at least one goal hit the post. After Adam Bodzek had fouled him in the margin, missed the Cologne-born from the penalty spot - and failed to Box guy. Gisdol wanted to make a triple change, a further pulse and had suffered seconds later by Tommy a blow to the neck. But then the Cologne on turned back and rescued a point. Cordoba with his eleventh goal of the season and Modeste to score his first goal since the 31. August made the seemingly impossible possible.
