New to the game and need some advice

I've an Audi A4 1999 1.6l (145000)
Bought the car under a year ago with a full service history
Had alot of miles up but used to run like a dream

One day coming home from work, i started to lose the power
Thinking it was a spark plug or coil problem I brought it to a mechanic
He told me it was the second cyclinder, it had no compression.
His solution, a new or replacement engine and parting with 2000 euro the wrong side of Xmass.

Is there anything I can do or is the car on its way to the car park in the sky?

Any advise or suggests welcome

I would swap the plugs out for new ones (dirt cheap) and see if that helps if not that then swap the coil packs around and see if the fault moves then you will know if its a coil pack issue, other than that a compression test.
