Due to the strong series under Argirios Giannikis, TSV 1860 is on the verge of staying in the league.

Will the Lions soon set new goals in the 3rd league?

Munich – Four wins and three draws is TSV 1860’s strong record so far under Argirios Giannikis.

This means that the Lions remain unbeaten under their new coach and are also the best team in the 3rd league in 2024 with 15 points from seven games. This means that the Munich team, under the leadership of the German-Greek, have freed themselves from the relegation battle for the time being.

The lead over the dangerous zone is now eleven points after the 2-1 win against Halleschen FC.

However, no one at the Lions wants to hear about staying in the league: “At the moment, 35 points won’t be enough to stay in the league.

In this respect, we would do well to continue working with full focus,” said the lion tamer after the game.

This was also followed by his players, who apparently listened well during the media training.

After the victory in the basement duel, both David Richter as well as Max Reinthaler and Julian Guttau remained reserved and stated that they only wanted to continue watching “from game to game”.

“First of all, we’re all happy that we fought our way out of it down there.

Now, of course, it's time to expand the series.

“We play football here to win,” Richter said after the game.

A few more points are needed to avoid relegation, according to the representative of regular goalkeeper Marco Hiller, who had to sit out due to injury: “If we stay unbeaten, I think things will look pretty good,” added the 24-year-old.

Max Reinthaler is good for the Lions' defensive network

Guttau, the winning goal scorer, also echoed this: “Things can happen so quickly in the league.

It's tight at the top and tight at the bottom.

That's why you should just keep going and not let up a millimeter." Reinthaler also warns against jumping to conclusions too quickly: "Eleven points ahead is good, but nothing has been achieved yet.

We know that." That's why the central defender sees the mission of staying in the league as not yet over: "We want to get our points together as quickly as possible so that we no longer have anything to do with down there.

As I said, I think we’ve got off to a good start this year.”

Reinthaler in particular is one of the keys to the Lions' success.

The 28-year-old moved to Munich in the winter and has appeared in each of the four games since then, starting three times.

The Meran native is obviously good for the Lions' game with his calm and experience and has become an integral part of the Giannikis team's backline.

Next goal after relegation is the DFB Cup?

Only seven points behind fourth place

The Italian also shows externally that the run of the last few weeks has given him self-confidence: “As a team, we want to play every game positively and win.

This is how we will continue to approach it.

As I said, we want to get the points together as quickly as possible so that we can then move on."

Now that the Lions have gained a lot of breathing room in the relegation battle, the focus is now likely to be upwards.

With 12 games remaining, they are only seven points behind fourth place, which entitles them to take part in the DFB Cup.

It is possible that the lions will set their sights on their next goal in the coming weeks.

The Giannikis team's next six-point game is scheduled for Saturday at SC Verl.

The hosts are currently in a low form and are two places ahead of TSV with just one point more.

With a win, the Sixties could overtake Verlern and almost completely open the door to staying in the league.
