CORDOBA EQUALISES!

INCREDIBLE. In the first minute of added time, Cordoba heads home the equaliser. Drexler with another assist and a fantastic cross from the right once again which Cordoba meets right in front of goal and Kastenmeier can't keep it out.

COLOGNE PUSHING ON

The home side have had 60 per cent of the ball and nine attempts on goal to Fortuna's seven. They are still pushing forward, knowing that one goal could inspire the other to come with just over 15 minutes remaining.

ACROBATICS FROM MODESTE

So nearly a spectacular goal from Modeste as he goes for an overhead kick, but he can't get it on target and the ball deflects down for Kastenmeier to gather.
67'

THOMMY ON FORM

That's four goals in his last six games for Erik Thommy.

GAME OVER ALREADY?

Cologne must remember that they were up 2-0 just last week before Mainz came back to draw 2-2. Can they take inspiration from their own downfall last week to conjure something special here?

THOMMY MAKES IT TWO!

And just like that, Fortuna have a two-goal lead. A lovely quick move from the away side as they win the ball in the halfway line and push it forward. It's Skrzybski again who claims the assist, passing across the edge of the box for Thommy who curls a shot beyond Horn and through the challenge of Bornauw.

FRESH LEGS

Three changes in one for Cologne with Modeste, Drexler and Mere all coming on for Katterbach, Jakobs and Ehizibue. Modeste goes up front with Cordoba and it looks like a switch to a three-man defence for the home side.

KASTENMEIER SAVES!

He dives to his right and guesses correctly to save Mark Uth's penalty.
58'

PENALTY COLOGNE

Mark Uth goes so close to scoring with two attempts blocked from close range and one hitting the post before he is brought down by Bodzek in the box.
56'

JAKOBS ON THE RUN

Tidy move down the left from Jakobs to pass and move around Zimmermann before reaching the byline and hitting a shot at the near post. Kastenmeier equal to it though, but Cologne are growing into this game more and more.
52'

FIRST SHOT ON TARGET

Florian Kainz's left-footed effort forces a save from Florian Kastenmeier, the first of the game for him.
51'

FORTUNA SHOWING CONTROL

The away side's defence is standing up to every battle in this game, continuing that here in the early stages of the second half. The pressing has slowed but Fortuna still making things difficult.
46'

SECOND HALF UNDERWAY

The ball is rolling again in Cologne with no changes to either side at the break.

ADDED TIME

MAKING THE MOST OF A MISTAKE

A poor pass goes forward from the Cologne defence and Fortuna's pressing kicks into the gear. They steal the ball and Skrzybski plays it forward to Karaman on the edge of the Cologne box. He touches it past one defender and fires at goal, and the ball deflects past Horn at his near post. The fifth goal Karaman has scored this season puts Fortuna ahead.

SIGN OF THE TIMES

Stöger looks to have won a foul in a good position for Fortuna but the ball runs loose to Thommy and advantage is played. The Fortuna winger, though, can only send his shot high over the Cologne crossbar. A sign of how the game has gone so far for these sides. Competitive in midfield.
34'

OPENINGS COMING

Some fantastic interplay from Cologne with Cordoba involved in a tidy move forward. The first time we've really seen the home side find open space around the Fortuna defence. It leads to a corner, which Skhiri heads over at the near post.
33'

NO CARDS SO FAR

We've seen 13 fouls committed in the first half but no cards have been brandished. Keeping things fair in the Rhine derby.
25'

TIGHT TUSSLE

Nothing to separate these two sides so far. Both have been good in possession, both pressing hard and both defending well. Only Fortuna have had attempts on target so far, and it make come down to few chances if it stays this way.
21'

KARAMAN FORCES A SAVE

The Fortuna forward is played a neat pass into the Cologne box and fires a shot first-time at goal. Horn is positioned well and pushes the ball over his own crossbar.
15'

WORKING HARD

As a team, Fortuna have run over 1km more than Cologne already in this game. Showing how much pressing Rosler's side are doing.
10'

CORDOBA GOES CLOSE

The flag saves the Colombian's blushes as he latches onto a long ball over the Fortuna defence to go one-on-one with Kastenmeier in the box. He pushes the ball past the Fortuna 'keeper, but can only hit the side netting with his shot.
6'

ON TOP SO FAR

Cologne have had a good start to this one, keeping the ball well against Fortuna's press but the away side are working hard in the early stages.
1'

AWAY WE GO

The final game of Matchday 27 in the Bundesliga is underway here in Cologne.
Kick-off!

MINUTES AWAY

Both sets of players are out on the pitch here in Cologne with some late afternoon rain in the sky and looking tempted to fall.

DERBY CARDS EXPECTED

Cologne and Düsseldorf are the league's top two for most cards received so far this season - 66 and 65 respectively. Add that to the derby match-up and it could be a busy afternoon for referee Benjamin Cortus.

STATE OF PLAY FOR THE GOATS

Cologne are winless in their two behind-closed door Bundesliga fixtures to date, having lost 2-1 in Mönchengladbach before last week's draw with Mainz. On the plus side, no team with a 10-point cushion on the relegation zone at this juncture - as the Billy Goats currently have on Fortuna - has ever gone down.

RHEIN DERBY

In case you don't know your German geography, this is a derby in the Bundelsiga. The cities of Cologne and Düsseldorf are separated by just 44km alongside the river Rhine. The reverse fixture saw Fortuna come away with a 2-0 win thanks to goals from Erik Thommy and Rouwen Hennings.

COLOGNE TEAM NEWS

Just one change for Cologne after their 2-2 draw with Mainz last weekend. Influential young wing-back Ismail Jakobs comes in to start for the first time since recovering from the coronavirus.

FORTUNA TEAM NEWS

Steven Skrzybski makes his first Bundesliga start for four months today, Üwe Rosler bringing in the Schalke-loanee to start for the first time in his tenure at the club. Valon Berisha drops to the bench for the first time since he arrived in the Bundesliga in January after he hit the crossbar twice in Fortuna's 1-1 draw against Paderborn last weekend.
