TSV 1860 Munich is out of the Toto Cup.
The third division had to admit defeat to FV Illertissen in the quarter-finals.
Illertissen - Used evening for TSV 1860 Munich!
The lions were eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Toto Cup, with regional league club FV Illertissen suffering a 0-1 defeat.
This means that "Munich's great love" can only qualify for the DFB Cup via the league.
After 15 minutes it was Maurice Strobel who gave the underdog and reigning Toto Cup winner the lead.
1860 acted too pomadig throughout the game and was too harmless at the end.
Illertissen repeatedly set pinpricks, especially in the first round, and could have led even higher at the break.
The team of interim coach Sven Ackermann presented itself more than properly in game one after the separation from coach Marco Konrad.
TSV 1860 is eliminated: bankruptcy in the Toto Cup against Illertissen
With Marco Hiller, Semi Belkahia, Niklas Lang, Marius Willsch, Yannick Deichmann, Tim Rieder, Martin Kobylanski and Meris Skenderovic, Löwen coach Michael Köllner actually had enough experienced staff available from the start to prevent a cup embarrassment.
The guests got stronger after the break and the substitutions of Joseph Boyamba, Fynn Lakenmacher, Stefan Lex and Erik Tallig proved that the six-year-olds really wanted to win in Bavarian Swabia - but it wasn't to be.
In the final phase, Lex and Skenderovic missed the best chances for the runners-up in the 3rd division.
In the end, the outsiders celebrated: Illertissen, currently seventeenth in the fourth-class Regionalliga Bayern, is therefore not undeserved in the Toto Cup semi-finals.
