Monchengladbach 1 - 2 Koln: Marcel Risse grabs winner at death as Cologne sink Gladbach

Posted Sunday, November 20, 2016 by PA

High-flying Cologne snatched a last-gasp 2-1 win at Borussia Monchengladbach to pile the pressure on Gladbach coach Andre Schubert.

Thomas Kessler, in for the injured Timo Horn and making his first appearance of the season, made a fine save to deny Thorgan Hazard in the fifth minute, but Lars Stindl gave the hosts a deserved lead after half-an-hour, turning Ibrahima Traore's pass inside Kessler's near post.

Traore hit the crossbar with a free-kick as the hosts had much the better of the first half, but they failed to extend their lead.

And they were punished when Anthony Modeste brought Cologne level on the hour mark with his 12th goal of the season, one he knew little about as the ball ricocheted in off his head from Jannik Vestergaard's header.

Worse was to follow in stoppage time when Marcel Risse's direct free-kick dipped in to earn Cologne all three points and extend Gladbach's winless run in the Bundesliga to six games.
