SV Menden – 1. FC Köln 0:1 (0:1) (2018 pre-season)

Visiting the women soccer pre-season between SV Menden, a team from my home town St. Augustin near Bonn, and the famous named 1. FC Köln (Cologne) is a quite traditional thing I also did with and the Facebook coverages. Both teams have been relegated for the 2018/19 season, Cologne was just about to prepare for the 2nd Bundesliga season, while Menden’s top girls would compete in the 4th class Mittelrheinliga in the upcoming season. Though both teams are early in pre-season preparation, Cologne surely dominated these competitions in the past, so a visitors’ win was expected.


I visited the same match-up on 31st July 2019.

SV Menden vs. 1. FC Köln – 1st half

Menden had a massive start having the first chance of the match just after a few minutes. Cologne thereafter took more control, but there were just a few chances. The golden goal was scored in the 21nd minute by Carolin Schraa, who just had to convert a nice pass in the penalty area. Thereafter, Cologne had a couple of minor chances, but the score stayed 0-1.

In the second half, you more and more felt the early stage of preparation and the intense summer heat. It was a nice game, inviting the spectators to enjoy some nice plays in the sun – or opt for some beer and traditional local food. Cologne hit the net a second time early in the second half, but the ref cancelled the goal due to offside. Menden had a nice fast break later, where some very optimistic home team supporters hoped for a penatly shot. Finally, there was no score in second half, which lead to a final result of 0-1, which was an absolutely respectable result for the hosts.
