 1. FC Cologne - FC Augsburg 3: 2: Thanks to double packer Tigges!  First home win since 2011 against FCA

Thanks to a brace from Steffen Tigges, 1. FC Köln ended a dismal run and celebrated their first home win against FC Augsburg in eleven years.

At the final whistle, Steffen Baumgart bent his upper body backwards, both fists jerked out, then let out a mighty cry of victory. The hard-fought 3:2 (0:1) against FC Augsburg at the start of the Bundesliga Sunday also cost the coach of 1. FC Köln a lot of strength and nerves.

Baumgart then disappeared briefly into the cabin aisle to collect himself and lift his cap, finally hugging the other “Steffen of the day” on the pitch. Steffen Tigges (47./81.) had decided the game against an uncomfortable FCA with two goals and at the same time ended a dark series: It was Cologne’s first win against Augsburg in eleven years.

“We pushed through our game but fell behind quickly and didn’t take our chances,” said Tigges DAZN, where he was wrongly first called Florian. “We did a lot better after the break, took the fans with us and threw everything in front.”

Tigges and Denis Huseinbasic (61st) also brought an end to an initial earnings crisis under Baumgart. Most recently, Cologne had suffered three defeats in a row across all competitions. Augsburg goals from Florian Niederlechner (14th) and Daniel Caligiuri (69th) were not enough to win a point, FCA are now three points behind Cologne in midfield.
