Fortuna Düsseldorf missed an excellent opportunity to avoid relegation after seeing all three points slip away in the final minutes when Colonia managed to equalize the visitors’ two-goal lead.
Fortuna played a very serious game and dominated from the beginning a colony that was erratic and made too many errors in defense, in addition to missing a penalty that if it had transformed it would have allowed him to equalize the contest.
He began by sending Fortuna, with more conviction in his game against a withdrawn Cologne and with little initiative. Those of Rosler they were gaining ground and Thommy He had the first opportunity with a shot that stopped the local goal. The party went rough, with many interruptions and few arrivals in the areas. It was not until half an hour when Colonia first arrived at Fortuna’s goal with a shot from Jakobs that came out by the pole. The team of Gisdol and Skhiri he had another chance that came too high. But it would be the Düsseldorf team that would go ahead on the scoreboard with a goal of Karaman four to rest after an assist from Skrzybski.
After the restart, Colonia came out with more vigor and after forcing two corner kicks he had a great opportunity to tie but the shot by Uth crashed on the pole. Only a minute later and in full local harassment Uth he would have another goal ball but this time it was Kastenmeier the one that thwarted the action with a great intervention.
Uth he would be the protagonist again a minute later when he had a penalty that he did not know how to transform by guessing Kastenmeier the intention. Fortuna took advantage of the dejection of the locals to score the second goal in a quick counterattack that Thommy he resolved with a precise touch to the far stick of Horn. From that moment the team of Rosler He knew how to manage his advantage although he could not prevent Colonia from entering the match two minutes from the end after a header from Southeast that shortened distances. The referee added four minutes and in the first one Cordova He made the goal that tied the game definitively with a superb header against the disappointment of Fortuna.
