Oh how bitter it is!
1. FC Saarbrücken gave a victory that was believed to be safe in the last few minutes, but had to be satisfied with a 2-2 after a 2-0 win at SV Wehen Wiesbaden …
Coach Lukas Kwasniok had to do without defense chief Steven Zellner at short notice, who caused problems with slight knee problems. “It is, however, a purely precautionary measure, nothing serious,” CEO David Fischer gave the all-clear at an early stage.
In the battle for fourth place, a hectic game develops. The hosts have the first chance. Jänicke with a bad pass in the build-up directly into the foot of Hollerbach, whose low shot lands in the hands of Daniel Batz (10th). Then it’s Saarbrücken’s turn, but Shipnoski’s header to Mendler’s flank goes a meter over (25th). Then the FCS is lucky after Korte puts a fine flick from the corner of the penalty area on the post – Batz would have flown for free (34th). It goes back and forth, a lot of mistakes in the setup of the game for both teams. A shot by Günther-Schmidt rolls past to the left (42nd), then Perdedaj, who broke through to the baseline, does not find the foot of a teammate, Mockenhaupt hits the ball out of the danger zone in the last second (44th).
0: 0 at break!
Saarbrücken comes out very offensively. Shipnoski on Jacob, whose shot from eight meters goes very gently past (54th). Two minutes later the doorbell finally rings. Jacob extended to Günther-Schmidt, who completed the 1-0 for Saarbrücken in the long corner (56th).
Günni gives rubber!
After a corner kick from Wiesbaden, Saarbrücken switches to counter mode in a flash, the ball comes back to Günther-Schmidt via Gouras, who leaves Wiesbaden’s keeper boss no chance and scores to 2-0 (64th). In the front, Shipnoski missed the decision from six meters (82nd), behind Uaferro and Tietz made the connection (84th) – very bitter.
Mainly because Saarbrücken had everything under control by then. And it gets worse. As in the 2: 3 against Viktoria Köln, the FCS have to swallow the toad again in stoppage time, Tietz heads to 2: 2 (90th + 1).
Keeper Batz then stormed into the cabin, pissed off: “I don’t feel like it anymore.”
Coach Kwasniok: “That is simply unbelievable.” The FCS have now been without a win for 5 games.
