In the league without a win for seven games, in the DFB-Pokal a show.

The example of 1860 shows what pressure can do in football.

A comment from Uli Kellner.

The day after, Michael Köllner was a guest at Sky.

In the news broadcast at noon, the 1860 coach was sitting in front of a replica of the DFB Cup - and in conversation with presenter Amina Ndao, what thoughts flashed through his head on the magical Giesinger Cup evening.

“As a third division team, you're happy if you somehow beat the second division,” he said modestly, adding, referring to the vision of his club: “You've got an impression of what is possible here when things are going well.”


Are there two professional teams with the 1860 coat of arms on their chests?

In the knockout competitions (Toto and DFB Cup) things have been going well for Köllner Löwen for a long time - in the league, to the chagrin of the fans, the opposite is the case. The team recently lined up so many draws that there was a rude awakening in the table - to position 16. Anyone who saw Lex, Mölders and Co. in their deserved win against Schalke asks themselves: Are there possibly two professional teams that with the 1860 coat of arms on the chest? The answer is: yes, because the cup and league lions differ in one very central point. In one competition Köllner's team can only win, in the other only lose. Self-imposed pressure paralyzes the legs in league operations. The team - see Tuesday - has not gotten a bit worse,since she almost moved into the promotion relegation in May.

It would be a signal to put the extra cup money into the development of this team

What the victory in the second round of the cup is worth, you will not see in the draw on Sunday, but the day before, when it comes to throwing the virtues of Tuesday into the balance against Freiburg II. Nothing is lost in the tight third division for 1860, but another 1-1 on Saturday could tarnish the hopes of promotion. But, to emphasize the positive: Perhaps it took just such an awakening experience to get the momentum and the self-confidence for another race to catch up up to the 38th matchday. The ingredients are there: a collective that can fight self-sacrificingly, great fans in the stands and players who can also make the difference against higher-class opponents: Lex, Mölders, Dressel, Hiller. . . A signal internally and externally would beto put the extra cup money into the development of this hopeful team. So that magical nights like Tuesday are no exception, but become the rule.
