Only a miracle can save SpVgg Unterhaching from relegation to the regional league.
But they are also rare in sports.
- The spark of hope of being able to prevent relegation to the regional league after all, which was sparked by the surprising 2-0 win against Dynamo Dresden, has almost been extinguished again. The Hachinger should definitely have to improve at the weekend, but lost 0: 1 at SV Wehen-Wiesbaden, which means that the gap to the first non-relegation place is still six points. “That was sleepy,” said SpVgg head coach Arie van Lent about the only goal that sealed the defeat in the third minute of the game.
“I am disappointed with how the result came about.
But I'm proud of the way we played.
That was really good football, ”said van Lent after the final whistle.
However, he also knows: “Unfortunately, only the results and points count.” And they have not been correct for the entire season.
The next league game is due tomorrow, Wednesday.
At 7 p.m., the SpVgg Unterhaching welcomes SV Türkgücü Munich, who lost to TSV 1860 at the weekend.
How quickly times change: It wasn't long ago that SpVgg Unterhaching was sporty in front of TSV 1860 and felt like number two in Munich.
Now she is about to relegate to the amateur league, while the lions are knocking on the door to the 2nd league.
Increasing efficiency is the only means of preventing decline
Despite the short time to prepare for the two important games, Van Lent is relying on lessons from the repeated mistakes of his team in Wiesbaden.
The former Bundesliga striker pointed out the deficiencies in the attack with corresponding insistence: “Despite our playful superiority, we were too harmless in the last third.
We lacked the final determination in front of goal, we were too playful and then played a bad pass. ”Van Lent inevitably believes that increased efficiency is the only way to save late from relegation:“ If we lose all the games of the English week ", Said the 50-year-old soberly," we don't have to worry about the 3rd division any more. "The first of the three games has already been lost.
