Not quite 55 hours after the unbelievable away match at the bottom of the table FC Köln, the SC Freiburg has time to prepare for the next match on Tuesday for the 16th match against home crowd against the last strong-acting Gladbacher foals.
With seven points from the last three games, the men around coach Christian Streich pull the same after HSV on Matchday 15, overtake SV Werder Bremen and stand on the relegation place.
Thus, they have scored in recent weeks against three direct competitors in the fight for survival. On the 13th day of the match, the Mainz team had to believe in it, which they defeated 2-1 at home and over the entire season was clearly the better team.
A week later, the Breisgauer separated in a fiercely competitive game of the Hamburg Rothosen scoreless draw. Bottom line, it was a game to stop.
However, what the Freiburg delivered in the basement duel on Sunday in Cologne, kicks the bottom of the barrel. The encounter had to be kicked off half an hour later due to heavy snowfall after more than 100 helpers cleared the field as best they could of the snow.
The goats showed from the beginning that they wanted to use their last chance to keep the class and went in the eighth minute in person of Jojic 1-0 lead. As a result, the “Effzeh” of uncertainty was no trace and they continued to play cheerfully. Guirassy was fetched unfairly in the penalty area after a quarter of an hour and turned the penalty penalty due to the 2-0. Previously, the players had problems to find the penalty spot.
Only a few minutes later, Lienhart was injured on the side of the Freiburg injured. For him came Stanko, who only a few moments after his substitution fabricated an own goal and gave the Cologne a comfortable 3-0 lead.
In the 39th minute then announced the hitherto barely existing in the offensive Freiburg back. Petersen cleared a free-kick under the crossbar for a 3-1 break. The men around new coach Ruthenbeck on the side of Domstädter came out of the cab better and found the first top chance in the second round, but did not bring the ball under the goal.
In the 65th minute, the Breisgauer scored the first goal. After a corner Haberer rose highest and nodded. With continuance of the meeting, the uncertainty of Cologne was felt and the disaster took its course. In the 90th minute, the referee pointed to the penalty spot after Özcan took Haberer off his feet. Petersen did not care and turned to 3: 3. And that was not all, there was another penalty in the 95th after a stupid Guirassy handball in the penalty area, which Petersen again turned. Thus, the Billy goats can plan for the second league and the Freiburg have little time to rejoice, because they have on Tuesday at 20:30 clock ran right back.
Lienhart had to get injured early against Cologne. For him Söyüncü could play, who lacked against Cologne due to muscular problems.
Schwolow – Koch, Schuster, Söyüncü – Stenzel, Günter – Höfler – Haberer – Ravet, Terrazzino – Petersen
B. Monchengladbach :
The men around coach Hecking have shown themselves in impressive form for weeks, but they always have a dropout in it, as well as on Matchday 14 in the away game in Wolfsburg, where they could bring their usual pace at any time on the lawn and rightly lost 3: 0.
The strong Schalke in Gladbach also played in the last matchday and it should be a strange game. The foals came into the game better and were rewarded in the 23rd minute for their courageous performance. Kramer switched one corner fastest and pushed the ball from a few centimeters over the line to 1: 0 lead. Then the events rolled over. First, Ginter rescued for the beaten summer on the line. In the 37th minute, the Gladbacher contributed a great attack. Grifo failed first at the crossbar, the rebound recycled Stindl. The gate did not count because the video wizard turned on. Stindl would have stood in the course of the attack at some point offside.
A short time later, the video evidence came into play again and this time it should be even curious. Naldo put Stindl in the penalty area. The referee pointed to the point, but took back the decision because previously a foul committed by Elvedi on Schalke Caligiuri. Completely incomprehensible decisions that brought the foals to a 2, or 3: 0 lead.
In the second half came as it had to come. Unlucky Vestergaard on the side of Gladbacher fabricated an own goal to 1: 1 final score.
On Tuesday, the Gladbacher in Freiburg continues, where they could not win for almost exactly 10 years.
Elvedi saw against Schalke the fifth yellow card and missing in Freiburg suspended.
Summer – Cuisance, Ginter, Vestergaard, Wendt – Kramer, Zakaria – Hazard, Grifo – Raphael, Stindl
