The third-tier football club, Victoria Berlin, missed the return to promotion status. The budding team lost 0:1 (0:1) to leaders Magdeburg on Saturday and remained unwinnable in their fifth consecutive competitive game. In front of nearly 20,000 spectators in the whole selling arena in Magdeburg, Connor Krempicki (4th minute) scored Magdeburg’s lead, which should not change during the course of the match.
Victoria coach Benedetto Musicato had to return to his team The team’s top scorer, Tolkay Sejersey, gave up due to an infection in his foot. The attacking midfielder has already scored six goals this season. There were two other changes to the starting lineup: Victoria played with a three-man series as usual, suspended Alexander Hahn replaced Pinker and Moritz Seifert was allowed to attack from the left side, and Benjamin had to sit on the bench.
Lightning start to Magdeburg
In a match of the best attack in the league against the second best attack from Berlin, Magdeburg came out with a lightning strike. Less than four minutes later, Krimbicki was completely free to shoot in front of the Berlin goal, and Victoria hadn’t really entered the game. Leading 1-0 early on, the hosts consolidated their supremacy this season.
But Victoria quickly got rid of the early shock and played bravely. Ewald tried repeatedly with long balls forward, which were rarely greeted by his attackers. The only really good chance was for Moritz Seifert (13th place), after a powerful pass from Enis Kwok, Seifert had run to the left well, but the ball slid too far forward and could have been blocked.
After 20 minutes of playing, Magdeburg’s chances increased again because the passports of Berliners were often very inaccurate. The hosts played their way through the guest defense almost effortlessly, and Muller (36) shot from a distance of ten meters in front of the goal on the free Krimbeki, but he missed a great opportunity and shot over the goal.
Krahl keeps Victoria in the game with a great show
In the first half hour, Victoria Magdeburg left a lot in her penalty area, despite not having any pace in the match. Magdeburg got chances almost every minute. Alexander Petrov (42) was fouled for the second time, this time by Julian Krahl in the penalty area, the next penalty was absolutely fine.
Luca Schuler (44) vs Julian Krahl was the name of the duel and the winner was Berlin. Krahl jumped into the right corner and shot a half-high into the right corner, the goalkeeper blocked hard.
A different picture in the second half
After the break, Victoria was more dangerous and there was a big chance for Falcao (47th place) after just a minute and a half before Magdeburg’s empty goal. The ball came from the left and Falcao took a long time.
Obviously, the first quarter of the second half belonged to the guests and the equalizer was not far away after a brilliant ball from Jobbik (61) in Seifert’s goal. But Reimann of Magdeburg was able to clear the deduction attempt with the shovel and the ball rolled away from the outside net. As a result, both teams had good chances, but none of them were taken advantage of.
Victoria has to wait for the win
Victoria pressed more and more in the last quarter and the equaliser was well deserved. Just before the end of the match (82), there was another long ball, the best way for Berlin in this match, from the midfield into the opponent’s penalty area, but Janis Becker did not hit the ball correctly and sailed far over the goal.
Magdeburg should have put the finish (87), Jason Seka could have done it himself, but gave the ball to Kai Broncker again in front of goal, when the Berlin goalkeeper Krahl was already on the ground. But Bronker stopped the opportunity 100%.
For Magdeburg, this was the ninth victory of the current season. Victoria still has to wait for victory after five straight games, but the second half in particular could give a boost to the next match at home against Dortmund 2.
