Openda double in the second half as Leipzig beat Cologne 5-1

BERLIN —

BERLIN (AP) — Loïs Openda scored a brace as Leipzig changed its style in the second half to crush Cologne 5-1 in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Leipzig moved into fourth place, two points above Borussia Dortmund, who play Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

They took the lead after 15 minutes through Dutch striker Xavi, but just three minutes later Sargis Adamyan scored his first Bundesliga goal in more than a year to draw Cologne level.

Leipzig were dominant in the second half and left no doubt about the result during a seven-minute burst.

Openda scored in the 63rd and 67th minutes and Amadou Haidara also scored to make it 4-1. Yussuf Poulsen completed the rout eight minutes from time.

Belgian striker Openda has 19 goals this season, only behind Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy (21) and Bayern Munich’s Harry Kane (30).

Cologne, which has won just once in its last 13 league games, remains second to last in the relegation playoff place.
