Surprise in the second Sachsenpokal semi-final: regional league team BSG Chemie Leipzig beat FSV Zwickau 5-4 after penalties and made it through to the final. Chemnitzer FC is waiting there on May 21st.
In October 2017, BSG Chemie knocked the third division team out of the cup 4-2 in the round of 16. Alexander Bury then scored for the early 1-0 lead for the Leutzscher.
On Thursday evening, in the initial phase, Bury’s hour will come again. His shot from 18 meters is deflected by Marius Hauptmann and is unstoppable for FSV keeper Johannes Brinkies – 1:0 (16th). The Alfred-Kunze-Sportpark, sold out with 4999 spectators, is shaking.
The hit has an effect on the Zwickau team. The third division side have more possession of the ball, but are completely harmless in front of the goal.
Only after the break does FSV become dangerous and can rely on its standard strength to equalize. 52 minutes: After a Göbel free-kick, the ball lands on Marco Schikora, who heads in centrally to make it 1-1.
At the end of regular time, Leipzig’s Lucas Surek (89′) and Patrick Göbel (90′) missed the winning goal – extra time! There is no class difference either. Chemistry fights with a lot of passion, but is lucky that Ronny König only heads the crossbar in the 118th minute. Shortly thereafter, Zwickau defender Nils Butzen is sent off with yellow and red.
The decision is made in a penalty shootout. After Anton Kanther converted the sixth attempt for the Leutzscher, Zwickau’s Max Reinthaler shoots over the goal. Before that, Coskun and Möker had not scored for FSV.
