When the cup round of 16 is drawn on Sunday in the ARD sports show, a third division team is sure to be there.

Schalke is out, continued in 1860 - a sensation!

What an evening!

What a frame!

When the great Giesinger hour was already a few minutes old, the exhausted 1860 professionals knelt down in front of the west curve and celebrated the return of emotions with the 605 days absent Ultras.

The longing goal of Berlin was sung together - and the victory in the DFB Cup, which is theoretically only four more victories away after the terrific 1-0 win over Schalke 04.

With a cunning goal, Stefan Lex had put his Lions in the lead after five minutes - it lasted until the final whistle after five minutes of stoppage time.

The 1: 1, which was in the air in view of the previous history in the league - it did not happen yesterday, which means that the second round of the DFB Cup has its first sensation early on.

After 605 days: Ultras are making an impressive return

“It was a tough game for us,” said coach Michael Köllner on Sky: “The team had a fantastic fight today - driven by a great stadium.

I think we deserved to win in the end.

We had a lot of opportunities, but unfortunately only scored one goal in the end.

Nevertheless, it was a very stable game for us - and not a happy victory. "

The team had a fantastic fight today - driven by a great stadium.

1860 coach Michael Köllner.

For the first time in 20 months, 15,000 spectators in the Grünwalder Stadium - and then so many celebrities.

Cult trainer Werner Lorant in the stands, the Ultras and their choreography back in the curve - and on the lawn the royal blues from Gelsenkirchen, this time in Bordeaux red that takes getting used to (because the "enemy" is black and yellow).

The blues from Giesing also presented themselves as transformed. The uncertainty from the league operation? To see nothing of it from kick-off. The Lions kicked off powerfully and self-confidently, and later on, fighting was the trump card - as if you couldn't ignore anything from seven point games without a win.

And less than five minutes had been played, and Schalke was already taking revenge on the fact that Dimitrios Grammozis had recently changed his team, which was so sovereign in the league.

Sascha Mölders stole the ball from the indisposed Darko Curlinov at the corner flag, passed it on to Lex, who took heart and Schalke's number two, Ralf Fährmann, pushed the ball through the braces into the net.

The leadership played the white and blue pressing monsters in the cards - and the goalscorer would have given the 1860 fans a much quieter evening if he had struck so coldly afterwards.

White and blue pressing monsters

In the 22nd minute, Lex pounded on the crossbar, in the middle of the second half he hit the side netting and previously pulled out a red card against Malick Thiaw (48th). But the 2-0 - it didn't want to fall. Good for 1860 that Schalke did not fare any better offensively. Mihailov (24th) and Ouewjan (31st) gave the best chances before the break - later Grammozis took in Simon Terodde, but the best striker in the 2nd division also had a difficult time yesterday against the carefully defending Löwen defense. Significant: In Phillipp Steinhart and Yannick Deichmann, both full-backs had to leave the field exhausted and battered. Traces of a heroic struggle that a quintet substituted for Moll and Greilinger continued seamlessly.

The DFB Cup will not continue until the new year, but the draw for the round of 16 will take place on Sunday (6.30 p.m., sports show).

The opponent of many fans' wishes should be clear and will have to overcome his second-round hurdle tonight against Gladbach.

When they moved in in round three, the lions washed 500,000 euros into the empty coffers.

The more important sporting game will take place on Saturday - against Freiburg II. Köllner: "We have to finally get a three-point in the league again - so that we can take the course we envision."
