It was not the start to 2023 that we wanted. In fact, yesterday was a really painful day, with all of the anticipation for the return of the Bundesliga washed away instantly. The 7-1 defeat away to 1. FC Köln was historic and showed us all that there’s a long way to go in order to stay in the league. “It's important that everyone understands that we’re a newly-promoted team in this league and if we don’t play to our limit, we’ll have some problems.,” said head coach Ole Werner. The turnaround is a short one with the next game, at home against 1. FC Union Berlin (Wed 25/01/2023, 20:30 CET), just a few days away, and the analysis on the defeat will be open and clear.
