Philipp: “We just wanted the victory much more”
SC Freiburg were able to finish the 20th day and made a terrific final for themselves. With the 2: 1 over the 1. FC Cologne, the strong promoter keeps a great distance to the danger zone – despite the many-time competition. Correspondingly great was the joy with the team of coach Christian Streich.
“The results have already put pressure on us, but the morale of the team shows that we still win so close matches,” said Lukas Kübler and was delighted with his first 90 minutes of the SC shirt: “That does not come from today To-morrow to keep up this intensity for so long. ” In the meantime, the legal defendant has arrived after a year of injury (knee operation) in Breisgau.
Longer established is Maximilian Philipp. The Offensivmann scored after a break (adductor problems) by means of a scooter the victory goal after a sharp kicked free kick Vincenzo Grifos. “Cologne plays a really good season, is very disciplined, but our advantage was that they had heavy legs from the Pokalspiel, which we knew well to use, went more and more intensively and wanted the victory simply much more The 1: 1 manage, but we have pushed on the 2: 1 and go as a deserved winner from the place. ”
Although Friborg reeled with 115.78 kilometers less than on average (118.39 / Ligaplatz 1), they did not surprise the otherwise more reserved Cologne (111.81 kilometers / section: 109.82 / Ligaplatz 18) in this category.

After a cautious start, she turned up in the second half, knew how to use the opening spaces better and more purposefully, but defended concentrated and stable – apart from the 1: 1, especially over 90 minutes. “We are always good for a goal, our big advantage was the defensive, so a big compliment to the whole team,” said Philipp.
Philipp: “I know I can play better”
“We just wanted to stay where we were, in this region, and the victory is very good.” When Philipp and Co. look closely, they have made an important step in the table through this simple strategy. 13-point gap, the eight-place Freiburg have now already a lead on the relegation relegation place – and only four points behind Europa League rank 6. Of course, the European business does not want to speak at the sports club. They did not do so in the 2012/13 season, when the prank elite ultimately missed the Champions League as a fifth only one hair. After 20 rounds the Breisgauer at the time ranked 8th, however, even showed a counter less than the 29 current.
“I know that I can play better, but it’s okay, defensive, but there must be more to come In the next games. ” Let’s see where that still leads for Philipp and Co.
