The SC Freiburg has surprisingly spotted points in the fight for the Champions League. In the designated relegated SPVGG Greuther Fürth, the team of coach Christian Streich remained undefeated in the sixth Bundesliga game in a row, but did not come out of a 0-0. On Sunday, Freiburg could be displaced from RB Leipzig from fourth place.
Freiburg had bad luck in post and slatted hats of Roland Sallai (13th) and Janik Haberer (67th), but found no means for a bilefly defensive and occasionally offensively dangerous shamrock.
For Fürth, the point in the fight against descent is quite too little again. The distance of the cloverleaf to the relegation place is still seven plays until the end of the season’s eleven points.
The game was shaped by many two fights and thus little considerable. Freiburg was difficult to raise a promising combination game against the aggressive hosts, but still had the early opportunity to lead the leadership: a treacherous shot of Sallai from 18 meters, Fürth’s goalkeeper Andreas Linde was still on the post (13th).
The shamrock seemed unimpressed by the crashing defeat against Leipzig (1: 6) at the weekend before, seemed offensive well also good approaches and would almost be launched by Timothy Tillmann. The attacker failed from a pointed angle on the Freiburger Cover Man Mark Flekken (28th).
As so often, the Fürthern lacked the forces in their stems on and in the penalty area on cold cutishness and assertiveness.
Fürth makes life difficult for Freiburg
After all, the francs made life difficult for the Champions League aspirants through their bite. For seven largely defensive forther players Freiburg found little spaces, also made many inaccuracies. Good chances such as the shot made of short distance from Vincenzo Grifo, the Linde spelled with the foot (36.), were in short supply.
Only towards the end of the first half of Freiburg built increasingly pressure. Fürth increasingly got problems to free itself, but thanks to its high operational readiness, hardly hazardous degrees of the guests too. The shot of Haberer (66th) also helped the latte.
