The first Advent could have been so sensual on the Lower Rhine, instead there was a hangover mood at Borussia Mönchengladbach. This was ensured by two defeats away from home in Cologne.
When the A-Juniors from Borussia Mönchengladbach competed against FC Schalke 04 (1: 1) on Sunday morning, there was only one topic of conversation in the standing and sitting areas around the Fohlenplatz: The 1: 4 slap of the professionals at the Rhenish rival , 1. FC Köln. Words like “indescribable”, “catastrophic” or “extremely embarrassing” fell among the spectators when it came to the derby bankruptcy from the previous day. After all, a point win by the U19s against the guests from Gelsenkirchen could be “celebrated” after the final whistle.
U19 can make amends
The Borussia weekend could no longer be saved. Similar to the Bundesliga team, the U23s also suffered a defeat in Cologne on Saturday. With 1: 2 at Fortuna Köln, it hailed the seventh consecutive defeat for the Regionalliga team. Two Cologne excursions to forget! From the foal’s point of view, we can only hope that the A-Juniors won’t let themselves be infected by this, because this is what will be required on next Saturday even at the “Effzeh” away from home. Then the boys can at least make up for it a little.
