Berlin, Feb 9, 2020 (AFP) - Borussia Monchengladbach's home Bundesliga match against Cologne on Sunday has been called off because of a forecasted heavy storm, the club confirmed.

The match at Borussia Park, due to kick-off at 1430GMT, would have been affected by the weather front 'Sabine'.

Officials in Monchengladbach feared fans would not have been able to return home safely.

"As the safe travel of the fans after the game cannot be guaranteed, Borussia Monchengladbach has decided in consultation with the city, fire brigade, police and the German Football League (DFL) to cancel the game," the club said in a statement.
