FCN: Midfielder Tom Krauss lets the club breathe again

This threesome was so important!

After a break of 105 days, 1. FC Nürnberg have finally won a home game again and kept their lead on a possible relegation place of six points.

Even better: The well-deserved 2-1 victory over SC Paderborn was a further step forward, both militarily and tactically. With such an achievement, the club will no longer have anything to do with relegation.

Match winner this time was RB loaned Tom Krauss (19). As in the Frankenderby against Greuther Fürth (2: 2), the strong duel from Leipzig not only convinced because of his brilliant winner from 21 meters. Krauss, well used by winter newcomer Mats Möller Daehli (26), after his first professional scorer at Sky: “I’ve always wanted that. For me a dream came true today. “

And it was a goal with an announcement! At least for Tobias Schweinsteiger (39). After warming up in an internal bet with head coach Robert Klauß (36), Nuremberg’s assistant coach decided on Krauss as the winning goal scorer. A bet that the club coach was very happy to lose: “I’m very happy for Tom that he scored his first goal for us. He’s not known as a dangerous goal-scorer. “

The fact that the club, with its excellent press, had to tremble until the final whistle, was due to Nuremberg’s poor exploitation of opportunities. After the head-ball lead by top clipper Manuel Schäffler (37th / after a great Valentini cross!) And the surprising equalization of Ostwestfalen by Antwi-Adjei (44th) – Krauss (post / 47th), twice Schäffler (among others Hand penalty / 60th) and Dovedan (90th + 5) the best opportunities in rows.

This time without consequences! Only the Franks cheered and roared at the final whistle. FCN veteran Schäffler after his tenth goal of the season: “It is extremely good for us that we have confirmed the Derby performance. But that also means at the same time that this must continue to be the benchmark and the basis for winning games. ”
