Late penalty rescues Cologne in Bundesliga relegation battle

Posted : 28 April 2024

Florian Kainz emerged as Cologne's savior, converting a 95th-minute penalty to secure a crucial 1-1 draw against Mainz, fellow Bundesliga strugglers. This dramatic equalizer keeps Cologne's hopes of avoiding relegation alive, although they remain five points adrift of Mainz in the relegation playoff spot.


Mainz seemed destined for victory after Leandro Barreiro's goal from a swift counter-attack put them ahead. However, Cologne's resilience shone through, and a late penalty call, confirmed by VAR, gave them a lifeline. Kainz remained composed to slot home the spot-kick and snatch a vital point for his side.


The draw between Borussia Monchengladbach and Union Berlin ended goalless, leaving both teams still vulnerable to the threat of relegation. Union's lack of goals continues to be a concern, with just one goal scored in their last five matches, while Monchengladbach's struggles extend to just one win in their last eight league games.


With the Bundesliga survival battle intensifying, Union Berlin faces crucial clashes against Bochum and Cologne, both six-pointers that could determine their fate. Meanwhile, Monchengladbach finds themselves in a precarious position with only a slim two-point cushion over the relegation-threatened teams below them.
