The Nice players were however frightened: after having led a 2-0 rest thanks to goals from Laborde and Brahimi, they let Cologne go back to scoring with two goals from Huseinbasic then Duda at the beginning of the second half but then they managed to resist until the end to the assaults of the German team.
