Borussia Dortmund also won the second match of the new Bundesliga season after a backlog. 3: 1 (0: 1) won the BVB promoted 1. FC Cologne. The title candidate had big problems, the goal of opening Dortmund by Achraf Hakimi had only fallen in the last minutes (86th minute). Jadon Sancho equalized the Cologne score led by Dominick Drexler (29). After a counter attack in overtime, Paco Alcácer got the final score (90 + 4).
Cologne posted a solid performance, especially in the first half. It was only when Dortmund coach Lucien Favre attacked in the second half that his team improved.
The tour was a co-production of the summer entries of Cologne: Birger Verstraete, from Ghent, marked a corner on the first post. Ellyes Skhiri, from Montpellier, extended the ball to the far post. Drexler scored with a flying ball in the lead (29.). Roman Bürki, who returned to the door after an injury, had no chance.
Two changes make the game turn
Dortmund needed until the second half to be dangerous for the first time. Alcácer was killed as a result of a Thorgan Hazard center in the area. Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn saved his team's lead (56.).
After a little less than an hour, Lucien Favre, coach of Dortmund, changed twice and brought Achraf Hakimi and Julian Brandt. A few seconds later, he finally equalized: Marco Reus failed to score in the penalty area, but Horn (63) was now in the penalty area.
Only a small corner shot led to 1: 1: About Reus and Hazard, the ball was delivered to Sancho, who passed from the right into the box and sent his left foot into the opposite corner (70 ').
The two side defenders from Dortmund were responsible for the goal of the opening. A superb center from the right-back Lukasz Piszczek hit the left-back Hakimi in the penalty area under goal (86.). Alcácer scored the final score after a counter-attack (90 "+ 4").
