The SC Freiburg
continues to cause a sensation and is on the
advanced fourth place. The Breisgauer also won thanks
45 minutes against Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0. Of the
Victory against Frankfurt is overshadowed by riots.
Two red cards in stoppage time, once yellow-red and a downed by a check to the coach Christian Streich: After a turbulent encounter, the surprise team of SC Freiburg their best starting third in the Bundesliga with the leap to a Champions League Place crowned. The unsightly scenes in injury time but initially clouded the joy of the happy 1-0 (0-0) win against Eintracht Frankfurt. Captain David Abraham checked Streich's neck just before the end of the sideline and saw Red by referee Felix Brych (90. + 6). In the ensuing melee, Vincenzo Grifo (90. + 10), already replaced, picked up his jaw and saw red as well.
Abraham is an extremely emotional player, football is a martial art, but that was in the wrong place, "said Streich on Sky, but then gave himself conciliatory:" We have to go down now. " Fredi Bobic criticized the culprit. He is emotional, that must not happen to him, "said Frankfurt Sport Board. But also the yellow-red card against the former Freiburg Gelson Fernandes (45. + 1) annoyed Bobic: "That was crucial for the game." Goalscorer Nils Petersen scored the winning goal in excess (77.). But that did not interest at first. "In the end, there was so much going on, football does not need that," said SC defender Dominique Heintz.
The hosts were in front of 24 000 spectators initially the more active team. The team of Streich proved that it can not only fight and run, but also combine. The guests were keen on ball security, and as soon as they succeeded, the Freiburg then usually run after. However, the sometimes minute-long ball possession phases of Eintracht led just as little to dangerous actions as the counterattacks of the sports club. That Frankfurt came in a weak first half but still by Martin Hinteregger (35) and Goncalo Paciencia (38) to scoring opportunities, offset Streich in rage.
After the double chance the coach scolded – his protégés missed the usual passion as far as possible. Fernandes' dismissal changed the balance of power on the pitch, but that only affected the ball. Even if Roland Sallai forced Frankfurt keeper Frederik Rönnow to a brilliant reflex five minutes after the restart, the Freiburgers lacked the punch. With increasing duration, the guests broke from the grip, but then Petersen struck with his sixth goal of the season.
