Munich – It was a forgetful first half! With 0:2 from the TSV 1860’s point of view, he went against Waldhof Mannheim in the cabin.
“We weren’t on the field in the first half,” Michael Kollner said in the press conference after the 3-1 home defeat. “We showed our worst performance of the season.”

“We invited our opponents to many opportunities, including goals.” Because of Mannheim’s chances, the result of the first half was “almost happy”. In 1860, the guests—now second in the table—wanted to challenge a duel, “we didn’t succeed at all in the first half,” Kollner said.
However, not only did Löwen’s coach struggle with his team’s performance, bad weather conditions also made the match difficult in his opinion – especially the wind. “You rarely experience that in football, when there are two very contrasting halves. That definitely has something to do with the wind.”

After the break, Sechzger dominated the match for extended periods and made a call back to Richard Neudecker’s goal in the 66th minute.
“In the second half we tried to use the wind, which we did well. I also saw in Mannheim that they had terrible problems with the wind and the way we played,” explained Eber Palatinate.

As a result, the Lions missed the best chances to equalize, including a penalty kick missed by Keanu Studd. “In the end, Mannheim put the cap on with a good counterattack,” said Kollner calmly and already focused on the match against leaders 1. FC Magdeburg (Saturday, 2pm, Magenta Sport and at AZ live).
“We need a reaction on Saturday, no doubt about that,” said Löwen’s coach. “You have to try to review the game again in the next game, and the focus will be on that.”
