More and more, the progress is also in the table from and now with 33 counters are the Domstädter on the way to early league relegation. After the important success in Jena and the hard-won point win at home against the Red Devils from Kaiserslautern, the hard game in Lotte was the last time out. The Sportfreunde, still unbeaten in 2019, have an incredibly massive and closely staggered defense. Despite good performances, Thomasz Kaczmarek turned three times and brought Kegel, Abu Hanna and N`Gamukol into the team for Andersen, Uaferro and Bröker. These somewhat surprising changes were fruitful, as the people of Cologne presented themselves very flexibly in the game forward. The opening goal by Hamdi Dahmani shortly before the break was the deserved reward.
When Lotte came to equalize in injury time and Cologne apparently tore the threesome out of their hands, the Fortuna could counter again. By penalty at the last minute put center-back Moritz Fritz to 2: 1 and secured the much acclaimed victory.

A look at the results and statistics speaks for itself. The VfL Osnabrück plays an outstanding round, rightfully ranks in the Sun in League 3 and wants to crown the season with the promotion to the 2nd League. 54 points after 27 games and six points ahead of third place are still a very good starting point for eleven games to be played. The great trumps of the team of success coach Daniel Thioune are the home strength and the good defense behavior. 20 goals are the absolute best of all 20 teams. However, VfL has had some problems in the recent past in away appearances. Only one of the last seven outings has been won by VfL. For a top team, this yield is far too low. After the clear 3-0 win at the weekend against FSV Zwickau, the Ligaprimus wants to refuel and send a clear signal to the competition with a threesome in the Rhineland. The last tense staff situation has relaxed a bit before the duel with the Fortuna.
Defender Konstantin Engel, who has earned his fifth yellow card in the top match at Karlsruher SC, is back after the suspension. Even Marc Heider, who had to pause last week, is back at full strength and will act alongside top striker Marcos Alvarez. The 27-year-old stands in the face of nine goals this season and was happy to score without a goal this weekend. His team-mate Maurice Trapp, who is not well known as the center-back for Torgefahr, jumped in the breach and scored a brace. In addition, midfield engine Etienne Amendiyo was included in the scoresheet. With Dercho, Agu, Riemann, Girth still fall some players due to injury, but coach Thioune has again significantly more options. In the Fortuna from Cologne Osnabrück wants to confirm the odds for a tip on the guest victory and meet the role of favorites. If the slight outward weakness would be overcome with that, nothing would stand in the way of a promotion to league 2.
