The debut of the new coach has failed. Hans-jurgen heidenreich and FC eintracht bamberg lost their match in the fubball-regionalliga bavaria against FC augsburg II 1:3 (0:1) on saturday. The victory of the swabians was deserved, although more could have been done for the FCE.
To blame the new coach for this defeat would certainly be too easy. Therefore, the time since thursday was too short to acclimatize to the new field of play. In addition, the opponent was with the "U23" of the national league FC augsburg a rough caliber. The hosts, who are fourth in the table, dictated the action in the first half hour: "it was true that augsburg put on the pressure. But we defended well", said heidenreich.
When it seemed as if the bamberg team could free itself from the pressure, the hosts scored 1:0 in the only sparsely filled rosenau stadium with 250 spectators. After a ball loss in the forward movement it went very fast. After fine work by panagiotis vlachodimos, erik thommy scored from close range to make it 1:0 for the augsburg side (28. Min.). "That was of course totally bitter, because we had just come into the game better", I argued the new FCE coach, almost fell immediately also the 2:0. Maximilian low got around keeper mario aller and then managed the trick of putting the leather not in the empty goal, but at the post (36.). Heidenreich saw before the break tea still a good situation of its. The equalizer almost arrived at the interval whistle. A free kick by nicolas gortler hit the crossbar (45).).
At the beginning of the second half, the bamberg team showed more. Daniel schaffler's lob landed only on the goal net. Similar to the 1:0, the second goal of the hosts fell in the pressing phase of the upper franconians. Lukas gortler lost the ball, and erik thommy finished off the ensuing counterattack after a precise feed from bajram nebihi to make it 2-0 (54).). The guests did not give up yet. Nicolas gortler was in a promising position to finish, but keeper ioannis gelios defused the attempt of the bamberger striker (66.). FCA teenager tommy was lucky to score the 3:0, his eleventh goal of the season. His deflected shot went over goalkeeper mario aller and into the net for 3:0 (72).). Shortly after the dismissal for FCA player bajram nebihi (77.) joker stefan reck made it 3:1 after a corner (80.).
The defeat was nevertheless sealed. Heidenreich was naturally disappointed: "we were not without a chance in augsburg, had opportunities. But the game was not going well for us. Unfortunately, the goals against 1 and 2 were scored at very unfortunate times. The bottom line is, the way the game went, augsburg deserved to win."
Meanwhile, heidenreich's manager dieter kurth would not say anything more about his dismissal, not even about the criticism of the FCE officials about his training: "i don't comment on that."
