Two red cards in stoppage time, once yellow-red and a downed by a check to the coach Christian Streich: After a turbulent game of SC Freiburg has crowned their best starting third in the Bundesliga with the jump to a Champions League place.
Captain David Abraham checked cult coach Streich to the ground just before the end and saw referee Felix Brych Red (90. + 6). In the ensuing melee, Vincenzo Grifo (90. + 10), already replaced, picked up his jaw and saw red as well.
This is what Streich and Hutter say about the Abraham check

Prank to Abraham: "Since his backups blown"
"That's where his backups burned out. Abraham is an extremely emotional player. Football is a martial arts, but that was in the wrong place, "said Streich on Sky, but then gave himself conciliatory:" We have to go down now. "

Fredi Bobic criticized the culprit. "That overshadows much at the end. He can not do that. He is emotional, that must not happen to him, "said the Frankfurt sports board. But also the yellow-red card against the former Freiburg Gelson Fernandes (45. + 1) annoyed Bobic: "That was crucial for the game." In deficit, scorer Nils Petersen scored the winning goal (77). But that did not interest at first. "In the end, there was so much going on, football does not need that," said SC defender Dominique Heintz.
The hosts were in front of 24,000 spectators in the first minutes, the more active team. The team of Streich proved that it can not only fight and run, but also combine. Grifo (7th) and Lucas HOler (8th) gave tight, but ultimately too imprecise shots.
Frankfurt misses its own leadership
Frankfurt's great opportunity for an early lead, however, was due to chance. After an uncertainty from SC keeper Mark Flekken the ball landed at the 2014 World Champion Erik Durm, who failed with his degree from just under 20 meters at the crossbar (12).
After the quite entertaining beginning the events calmed down. The guests were keen on ball safety and as soon as they succeeded, the Freiburg usually ran after. However, the sometimes even minute-long ball possession phases of Eintracht led just as little danger as the sporadic counterattack of the sports club.
That Frankfurt in a weak first half but still by Martin Hinteregger (35) and Goncalo Paciencia (38) came to scores, Streich literally in rage. After the double chance the cult coach scolded like a Rohrspatz – his proteges missed the usual passion as far as possible.

Fernandes' dismissal changed the balance of power on the pitch, but that only affected the ball. Even if Roland Sallai forced Frankfurt keeper Frederik ROnnow to a brilliant reflex five minutes after the restart, the Freiburgers lacked the punch. That was to change after just under an hour young international Luca Waldschmidt, who came on after surviving foot injury and celebrated his comeback.
But even with the strong offensive attacker developed a game of patience, in which the hosts searched frantically for the formula for success. And whatever they did in this phase – whether long shot or dribbling – it did not work. With increasing duration, the guests broke free, but then Petersen struck ice cold with his sixth goal of the season. Flekken prevented the compensation against Hinteregger (84.).
