Bremer Error Festival and Tigges Art Photo: Cologne demolishes Bremen with 7:1

The Bundesliga reported back at the start of 2023 with a stunning opener on Saturday night. 1. FC Köln, who had taken advantage of many bad mistakes from the Bremen guests in the first 45 minutes, made a proud 7-1 against the promoted team. This also ended the negative pre-Christmas streak.

Saturday night’s first New Year’s Eve 2023 Bundesliga game between Cologne and Bremen had something odd to offer ahead of time, after all FC coach Steffen Baumgart betrayed his starting XI well in advance – and with the fact that newcomer Selke was initially on the bench and Tigges in front of the attack – flanked by Kainz and Maina – would start. That’s how it happened.

Meanwhile, his counterpart Ole Werner continued to rely on his core team. World Cup returning player Füllkrug played with friendly partner Ducksch from the start, while Stark was allowed to get to work at right-back in the trio instead of Pieper (individual training due to ankle problems).

Extremely high entertainment value, much less excitement due to early decision.

From a purely sporting point of view, the order of the day was whether the Weser guests could make up for their strong run after promotion – and whether the “Effzeh” after five league games without a win before the long winter break (World Cup) with only one would win and four bankruptcies again would find their way. The answer was found quickly because the guest from the Weser was invited with pleasure.

Cologne five-pack – including an achievement

Bundesliga – Matchday 16

Ducksch first executed a very weak attacking free kick, so hopefully the Cologne team made it 1-0 with a counterattack that followed and not even 20 seconds later with the accurate shot from Maina (9th minute). Six pointer rounds later, Ducksch again made the wrong decision, this time Kainz and shooter Tigges punished – 2:0.

But it got worse: After an error by Weiser and goalkeeper Pavlenka who came out too short to defend, Tigges made it 3-0 with a nice chip from just over 45 yards (21′ ). When SVW defended too passively, Tigges heeled past Skhiri, who was not offside and nonchalantly made it 4-0 (30′), before Huseinbasic passed faster than Friedl after a cross pass from the excellent Tigges – 5-0 (36′). ).

The Werder team was still struggling a little before the break: Füllkrug headed back after a dangerous corner from Ducksch to bring the score to 5-1 (38th). Six goals were scored in the first half for the first time in the Bundesliga season.

Number 6 – and also number 7

With the reboot, it didn’t improve from a green-white point of view. Quite the contrary: the agile winger Maina regularly nibbled at his opponents and in the 54th minute sent a superb cross to Skhiri completely forgotten on the left in front of Pavlenka’s goal. The Tunisian made it 6:1 with a side kick.

With this sixth goal, which was full of half a dozen for the Domstädter, the air was offside. The rest of the time, the match was often linked, in particular because the Cologne team remained defensively committed and caring. It’s also worth mentioning that FC Selke’s new professional, who was signed from Hertha BSC this winter, made his debut against former club Bremen. However, the 28-year-old didn’t look dangerous in front of goalkeeper Pavlenka.

But Maina, who once again aged the opponents and announced an unfortunate goal by Friedl against his side with his cross pass to bring the score to 7-1 (76th). It remained so, with which the Rhinelanders were able to celebrate again after the weak phase before the ten-week winter break (one draw and four defeats in five league games). And Bremen? The North Germans landed hard in 2023.

It continues as follows: 1. FC Köln will visit league leaders Bayern Munich on Tuesday as part of an English week (kick-off 8.30 p.m., LIVE! on kicker). For Bremen, this will continue a day later on Wednesday (8:30 p.m.). Then Union Berlin is a guest.
