Leverkusen (dpa) – SC Freiburg’s historic lead, blink in pan rather than reversal for Bayer Leverkusen: With a 3:2 (0:1) win over Werkself, SC are just one day of matches as table captain for the second time in 23 years From the German league disintegrated.
The first time in 2000, Badners were ahead after day one of the game, now on day five it was as late as ever. In the national player Matthias Ginter (48th minute), Michael Gregoric with his third goal this season (51) and Ritsu Duane (72), after a weak first half, three new players turned the game for coach Christian Streiss’ team and secured the victory. The third win in the third game away from home. It was also a successful rehearsal for Thursday’s match against Azerbaijan’s Karabakh Agadam, Freiburg’s first Europa League match in nine years.
Bayer crisis continues
On the other hand, Bayer received its third defeat in its third home game and fifth in its sixth match, and is still in crisis against Club Brugge before the start of the Champions League on Wednesday. After former national player Kerim Demirbay’s first competitive goal in exactly eleven months (16th place), it initially looked as if Leverkusen could take the next step out of the crisis with a 3-0 win in Mainz.
But in the end, not even Patrick Schick’s first goal of the season has come in handy (65). The Czech headed in a cross from Callum Hudson-Odoi, who was playing only four minutes in the German League.
As in Mainz, Seoane initially relied on three in the back. Hudson-Odoi, who had committed four days earlier, had to wait an hour, but then set several dialects. The match lasted only four minutes when it stopped for five minutes. Freiburg’s Roland Salai became dizzy after colliding with Jonathan Tah and exiting the field.
Curiosity gave Bayer the lead. Manuel Goldi, the only newcomer in the starting line-up actually brought in to bolster the defense, saved from Schic first with his head and then with his foot so embarrassingly that the ball fell three meters in front of Demirbay’s feet. Freiburg fell 1-0 for the first time this season and conceded their first away goal. Schick (35 minutes) or Moussa Diaby (41) could have increased before the break, but SC goalkeeper Mark Leteken reacted well.
Streich reacted during the break. Maximilian Eggstein, who has recovered from a broken middle hand, brought in Yannick Keitel and Duane for the unfortunate Gould – who also revised his pre-match decision and went back from three at the back to the regular quarterback. And just two minutes into the first half, the equaliser came, albeit with a record setting: Ginter headed home from Vincenzo Griveaux’s corner kick.
And when Edmund Tapsoba missed it completely three minutes later, the High Commission stepped forward. Now Seoane has also switched from a three-man series to a four-man series and an open exchange has developed as Freiburg once again parries Schick after a corner kick.
