Streaking over Schlotterbeck: More is not possible, in all directions

After a very good performance in the overall defensive 4: 3 victory over Hoffenheim (Schlotterbeck grade 1.5), Schlotterbeck also entered the error list in 1: 4 against his ex-club Union Berlin (grade 4). On Saturday, the new international wanted to keep a difficult ball in the game instead of clarifying it – the 0: 3 followed by the fast Sheraldo Becker.

For Christian Streich, such scenes are also part of the development process for vertical starters: “With Nico it has also been quite a bit in the last six months. There is nothing more possible, in all directions,” said Streich after the first appearance of his central defender after his announced switch to BVB. “He also makes mistakes, that’s not bad, he is very young and very ambitious. He did a lot of things well, there is always a mistake, like other players, that is normal,” said the coach.

In connection with the current defensive weakness in connection with the current defensive weakness, Streich also referred to the qualities of the opponent that cannot always be kept in check. So Schlotterbeck was “boiled” by Gladbach’s Breel Embolo in front of his goal two weeks ago, as he called it himself.

Freiburg recently conceded too many goals

Anyone who knows the ambitious 22-year-old knows how much such scenes worm. Just like the ten goals, which the most stable defensive in the league recently conceded in three games this season. “That is definitely too much,” emphasizes Schlotterbeck: “We scored three goals against Gladbach, in Hoffenheim four, but we can’t do every game, we cannot expect our strikers.” You have to work more on the former strength again, says Schlotterbeck and do not believe a repetition: “I think I can promise that we will not concede four goals in Leverkusen and in two weeks against Leipzig.”

Despite the bitter damper against Union, he does not feel too much disappointment: “We have lost twice in the last 14 games, once against Bavaria and now against Union. We have to continue working and win the next game.” Then you can see what it is enough.

little chance of the Champions League

The Champions League has only had a rather little chance since Sunday evening: Leipzig would have to lose in Bielefeld and the SC won in Leverkusen. Nevertheless, it is important to meet your own prerequisite with the Werkelf. To maintain at least fifth place and to complete the dress rehearsal before the cup final with a positive feeling.

The second best player in the league after Schlotterbeck notes (average 2.68) after world star Robert Lewandowski went half an hour after the final whistle of his sporty, unsuccessful home party on Saturday again in front of the Freiburg fan curve and said: “The The season went very quickly. I had a lot of fun here in the new stadium, I will never forget one or two moments in this stadium: the winning gate against Wolfsburg and the goal against Hoffenheim. was a lot of fun.”

At best, this will be the case twice, albeit away. With the cup win, Schlotterbeck could create a crowning conclusion to his fabulous season.
