Bayer proved their current exceptional form again on Wednesday evening in Cologne. The Werkself won the derby on the Rhine with a clear 4:0 victory. A brilliant opening phase set the course for victory. And if you look at the goals again in the summary (you can't do that often enough with victories against Cologne), then you realise that one goal was more beautiful than the other.
Okay, there are no beauty prizes in football, but such a brilliant victory gives us a boost for the game against Bayern next Saturday. The trees will not grow to the sky for us. But with Bayern's current form, a home win is much closer than in Munich's last appearances at the BayArena. And if it's not enough, it's still been a great performance by the Werkself so far this season.
