Gisdol complains of negligence
Just a moment ago everything was still good – and suddenly the mood changes. With two points from three games, 1st FC Cologne go down as losers from the first two weeks after the re-start, a frustrating bankruptcy against Hoffenheim behind them and RB Leipzig in front of their chest. With the final whistle in Sinsheim, Cologne opened the next chapter in a process of reappraisal that has been underway since the first game against Mainz (2-2) and which is becoming more difficult and complex from game to game. A “sleepy early phase” (central defender Toni Leistner) was topped by the red card for Sebastiaan Bornauw, and the optical superiority that followed turned out to be a battle of mirrors by the grace of Hoffenheim, as they allowed themselves to come “sleepily out of the break”, as Leistner quite rightly remarked.
