After individual mistakes, the SC is on the verge of elimination in the Europa League.

Then Roland Sallai hits back.

Michael Gregoritsch decides the crime and shoots the Baden team into the round of 16.

Freiburg - Thanks to great morale and a furious comeback, SC Freiburg reached the round of 16 of the Europa League.

The Baden Bundesliga team won the thrilling playoff second leg against RC Lens on Thursday after being 2-0 down with 3-2 (2-2, 0-2) after extra time.

David Pereira da Costa initially scored for the French after a mistake by SC goalkeeper Noah Atubolu (28th minute) and Elye Wahi (45th + 2) in front of 34,700 spectators.

The strong Roland Sallai scored a brace (67th/90th + 2) for Freiburg's equalizer, while joker Michael Gregoritsch (99th) made the decision.

In the first leg, both teams played a goalless draw a week ago.

The atmosphere in the stands was great, but there was a spectacle on the pitch late on.

The Hungarian Sallai was the most noticeable Freiburg player in a game that mostly took place between, but not in, the penalty areas in the first 25 minutes.

In the guests' best phase to date, their lead also fell - aided by Atubolus Schnitzer.

When he received a high cross, the SC keeper seemed undecided whether he should catch the ball or punch it.

He then maneuvered it forward just a few meters - Pereira da Costa hit it flat into the net.

The Freiburgers tried to respond quickly and were unlucky.

A free kick from the right half of the field flipped through the French penalty area and only landed on the post thanks to a reaction from the attentive RC goalkeeper Brice Samba (33').

Immediately before the break, Lens took advantage of another individual mistake in Freiburg's defense.

This time defender Manuel Gulde didn't look good in the duel with Wahi.

The striker moved into the box on the right and lobbed past Atubolu to make it 0-2.

“We can't get any flow into our game.

That’s a problem,” analyzed SC sports director Klemens Hartenbach after the first half on RTL.

“We can’t put pressure on them.”

Coach Christian Streich tried to change that by bringing Gregoritsch up front and Noah Weißhaupt on the left.

It worked.

The Breisgauers now became significantly more dangerous.

Merlin Röhl fell in the penalty area but didn't get a penalty.

Then Sallai finally brought the SC back into the game in the pouring rain.

A shot from the 26-year-old was deflected and landed in the goal.

Keeper Samba was powerless, but was there again several times afterwards.

However, the pressure from the attacking hosts grew ever greater.

In stoppage time they were rewarded with the equalizer - again from a deflected shot from Sallai.

In extra time, Gregoritsch scored from the turn to make it 3-2 - and sent the Freiburg fans into ecstasy.
