Before the League Kracher against Bayern Munich Union Berlin has solved his compulsory task at Waldhof Mannheim only in the post-seats. The Bundesliga fifth won after extension 3: 1 (1: 1, 1: 1) in the third-league fifth and has moved into the third round of the DFB Cup.

Double packer Kevin Behrens (18./118.) And Taiwo Awoniyi (94th) met for the Köpenicker, who received the record champion from Munich on Saturday. The Mannheimer, plagued by internal quarrels, missed a surprise as in the first round despite the lead by Alexander Rossipal (4.). In the summer Eintracht Frankfurt had failed in the Kurpfalz.

The team tore something big. We were even closer to the second half, said the Mannheim Marc Schnatterer at Sky : We are brutally disappointed, it was more possible. It hurts at first moment, but tomorrow we can proud be.

A few hours before the kick-off, Mannheimers had separated from their League Krachery head Jochen Kientz. For the reasons, the club made no exact information. Neither alleged reinforces between Kientz and Managing Director Markus Komp, nor a birthday party of the League Krachering director would have led to the decision.

In the past, media reports had given a power struggle between Kientz and Komp. In addition, there was last a fierce Corona outbreak in the pincers. The origin was a team celebration called Kientz on the occasion of his birthday.

The frenetic Waldhof fans among the 14,651 spectators did not have to wait long for the lead. After a cross of the long-standing Health Hours professional Marc Schnatterer and a weak defense of Union goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow, inner-defending Rossipal proved his demolition qualities.

The Berliners who had to do without Max Kruse, Marvin Friedrich, Julian Ryerson and Rick Van Drongelen revealed great problems in all team areas even after the residue. Compensation by Behrens after good preliminary work by Sheraldo Becker and Andreas Voglsammer was the first successful offensive action of the capitals.

The hit gave guests more security. The iron controlled the game until the break, but did not jump out opportunities.

At the beginning of the second passage, the Mannheimer took the command again. Led by the strong Frenchman Adrien Lebeau, they were close to the second goal several times.

Only after an hour Union came in better again, Waldhof got problems. The leadership for Berlin was in the air, the opportunities piled themselves – the substitute AWoniyi, most recently in the league already extremely accurate, had the largest (90th + 2).

In the extension, the bully striker made of Nigeria better. After the residue, the Mannheimer threw all despite dwindling forces – in vain.
