UNLUCKY 13

Anthony Modeste's delightful dink was his 13th goal of the season, but unlucky for him, it did not earn all three points.

DESERVED DRAW

An enthralling game between two teams who have really impressed this season, and silenced plenty of critics. Chances at both ends, but a point each is probably a fair result.

HOSTS' HEAD OF STEAM AS HORN BOOKED

BIG CHANCE FOR ASANO!

That was almost it for the hosts! Asano goes oh so close to his second, from point-blank range, but it is saved instinctively!

NEXT EFFORT FOR BOCHUM

Bella-Kotchap sends in the latest shot from the hosts, who continue to lead in that statistic and in xG, but it is still Cologne who have their noses in front in the stat that counts.

TIME TO REDRESS?

information
xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
Bochum should be leading, according to the xG model. Can they turn things around yet?

SO CLOSE - TWICE!

Two big chances for Bochum to level matters, first with Holtmann's effort pushed away by the Cologne keeper, and then Löwen sending the ball over from close range! Good start to the second half by a determined Bochum.

Bochum were deserving of their lead, but they have sat back since Holtmann put them in front and goals from Hübers – his first in the Bundesliga – and Modeste have turned the tables, with Cologne improving as the game progressed.

MODESTE MISSES

Before the goal, Modeste had wasted the best chance to score.

MODESTE MISS!

Perhaps the best chance of the game so far falls at the feet of Modeste - arguably just who you would want a chance to fall to - but he scoops his shot over the crossbar!

Another good chance for Bochim with Holtmann using his pace to race forward and send in a low shot which Schwabe saves with his leg.

BOCHUM BETTER

Another chance for the hosts, with Löwen flashing a shot wide of the far post. The hosts are looking the stronger at the moment.

TIGHT START

Judging by the opening exchanges - and this photo - it's going to be a tight one tonight.

LOSILLA OFFSIDE

Third shot on goal from the hosts, but it would not have counted anyway with Losilla drifting into an offside position before receiving the ball.

DOUBLE CHANCE!

Pantovic and Rexhbecaj with the first two shots of the game, the former seeing his effort blocked and the latter missing the target against his former club.

BOCHUM PRESSING HIGH

No big openings yet, but the early exchanges have shown a Bochum sign keen to press high and force Cologne to find ways out from the back.
