It was an unusual defeat on Saturday, not only because after the 0: 1 against VfL Wolfsburg, all of Cologne sank. What makes the bankrupt so special is the statistics: after 90 minutes, the chance ratio was 10: 2 for FC, the “billy goats” posted eight chances more than Wolfsburg and were nevertheless empty.
