'Gladbach beats Cologne, Frankfurt held on Boateng's return

BERLIN (AP) Nico Elvedi's first goal in 47 Bundesliga games for Borussia Moenchengladbach was enough to beat Cologne 1-0 in the Rhine derby on Sunday.

The Swiss defender ran the length of the pitch to reach Ibrahima Traore's cross and score through Cologne `keeper Timo Horn's legs at the start of the second half.

Elvedi also produced a goal-saving tackle to prevent Jhon Cordoba from equalizing on his league debut for Cologne. Cordoba, who joined from Mainz as a replacement for Anthony Modeste, is Cologne's most expensive signing with a reported fee of 17 million euros ($20 million).
