Viergever: I should have shot the ball out
After the game, Leitl was satisfied with the appearance of his team: “We were able to hold up the tension during the week, played a lot of things into the game here and one of our best first half.” If this season had only started with the second half of the season, the Fürther would be in the middle of the relegation battle and would have all chances. Before the rest of the games of the 32nd matchday, they take 15th place in the second round table with 13 points.
“Unfortunately, the risk assessment was not optimal”
However, the subjunctive does not help, and the 1-1 showed very well why it wasn’t enough in the end. In addition to Branimir Hrgota’s ninth goal of the season, SpVgg should have scored a second or third goal. Instead, she gave Union the equalization. “I would have had to shoot the ball. We took too much risk at the moment,” Nick Viergever admitted his “simple mistake” before the 1-1. However, a partial debt also hits goalkeeper Anders Linde, who should not have alluded to four -handver in this pressing moment. “Unfortunately, the risk assessment was not optimal against Leverkusen as before a week ago. We have to recognize that we sometimes sprinkle long ball,” analyzed and criticized Leitl the fateful scene in the 72nd minute.
Nevertheless, the positive from Fürth’s perspective in the old forestry prevailed. The competition knows that the bottom of the table cannot be hanged. Borussia Dortmund is expecting the last home game next Saturday before the season is at FC Augsburg. This will be the last chance to say goodbye to at least one away win after twelve defeats and four draws. And Fürth still needs a threesome to reach 21 points as in 2012/13 at the first Bundesliga start.
