What Michael Köllner's team lacked in the draw against Bayern II, they now need in the final against Ingolstadt: even more passion and a little more luck.
Munich - It was actually the perfect move.
The "Giesing Wampe" Sascha Mölders * stopped the ball with her chest and placed it on Stefan Lex, who was completely free standing in front of Ron-Thorben Hoffmann to shoot.
But the goalkeeper of Bayern II made wide, parried.
The lions missed the winning goal five minutes before the end and had to be content with a 2: 2 after a mixed derby performance.
TSV 1860 Munich fights for promotion place: Competitor Ingolstadt celebrates victory
Since competitor Ingolstadt had already defeated MSV Duisburg 5-1 on Saturday, the ultimate final for the relegation place will now take place on the last day of the match.
Next Saturday (1:30 p.m.) the lions have to win at the Schanzern in order to keep their dream of the 2nd Bundesliga.
Michael Köllner was not impressed by this: “We're going to Ingolstadt with a big chest.
That's the best: that there is such a finish at the end! "

While 60 is still dreaming of promotion, it will be extremely difficult for Bayern to avoid going to the third division on the last day of the game.
They are three points behind the saving 16th place (Uerdingen), and they also have a worse goal difference.
Experienced Maximilian Welzmüller still spoke of the fact that one was still alive: "With the coat of arms on our chest, we must never give up." It was a derby of contrasts anyway.
The lions with the tailwind of ten games without defeats, Bayern II with the courage of desperation after ten games without a win.
The first highlight of the game was provided by two 18-year-olds: Christopher Scott put the ball in the penalty area to Armindo Sieb, who easily pushed in - 1-0 (13th).
Koellner complains about Bayern II's "destructive" style of play
Bayern II was compact and went into the duels.
Köllner spoke of a "destructive" style of play, but probably forgot Bayern's very young offensive department, which combined to create good opportunities several times.
After a nice teamwork between Scott and Nemanja Motika (first starting eleven, also only 18), Sarpreet Singh pulled into the penalty area in the manner of an Arjen Robben, but circled the ball just past goalkeeper Marco Hiller's case.
Sascha Mölders scored 1: 1 for 1860 and berated his opponent after the final whistle.

What do you hope for when nothing comes of the game? Right, standard situations. After a handball by Alexander Lungwitz in the penalty area, referee Frank Willenborg gave a penalty. And of course, the captain took responsibility. Sascha Mölders trudged to the point and then shot the ball down to the left while Hoffmann flew into the other corner - 1: 1 (41st), the 22nd goal of the season for Mölders.
Actually nothing could go wrong with the lions yesterday. Finally, Petra Freitag cycled in an extra hurry to the Grünwalder Stadium before the game to present her partner Michael Köllner with the lucky belt that the 51-year-old had apparently forgotten at home. But despite all the lucky charms, Bayern initially remained the more dangerous team in the second half. Singh nibbled on Philipp Steinhart, pulled back inside and defeated Hiller - 2: 1 (49th). After a foul by Nicolas Feldhahn on Lex there was another penalty, Steinhart converted safely and saved the lions from the draw (68th).
In the final phase, 60 pushed for victory again, but the rebellion came too late.
After the final whistle, Mölders caused a fire when he clashed with Welzmüller: “But he runs against me and starts to howl like a little schoolboy.
And now the big face ”, says Mölders.
The lions in Ingolstadt should then show the same passion again on the pitch.
