Regional league football club Rot-Weiss Oberhausen suffered a late 1-0 defeat at 1. FC Köln’s under-21s, who were weakened by substitutes.
The signs were clear before the away game from Rot-Weiss Oberhausen at the U21 des 1. FC Cologne: RWO had completed a good, successful preparation, while the FC reserve had to do without seven players due to the corona. There are also top scorers Florian Dietz (Surgery) not available. Nevertheless warned Mike Terranova, coach of the Kleeblätter, before the Cologne team: “We will take the game seriously. It’s important that we don’t let the current situation blind us. Cologne are the strongest amateur team this season and have some talented players in their ranks.”
The coach was right: It was a difficult game for his team. RWO lost 0:1 (0:0) in the Franz Kremer Stadium due to a late goal.

The first 45 minutes were uneventful. Highlights and goal chances were scarce. For the guests had a striker Vincent Bösen (9th, 44th) two degrees – but it wasn’t really important. The 0-0 at the break was performance-based. However, the weakened Cologne player had to change twice in the first round due to injury.
Oberhausen’s central defender had eight pointer turns after the break Tanju Öztürk the great opportunity to lead, but he failed with a header to FC-Keeper Julian Rolloff. From then on, RWO determined the game, but had problems creating clear chances. And it was to get even worse for the fifth-placed team: in the 89th minute, the regional league team got hit by a precise shot by Richard Henning even in arrears. It stayed that way: Oberhausen suffered a bitter 1-0 defeat. A big setback in the fight for promotion!
