Finally, from the point of view of the “clubbers”, the tactics of the interim coach Schombers may have reached. The climber from the last two Bundesliga rounds scored four points. However, the awakening from deep sleep may be a little too late.

Once again, the Schombers Mannen presented at VfB rough and poisonous in the duels. In general, one must say that the game, even if it was pure relegation, was hard to beat. The initial phase certainly belonged to the home side. At first Zuber failed at an acute angle, after a good half hour Kempf failed at the crossbeam. From then on the guests from Nuremberg got better and better into the game. But Pereira found his master in Zieler. He could just steer the ball to the post. A little later, however, it rang in the VfB box. After a corner Behrens screwed highest. Zuber could only direct the round to the crossbar. Pereira was the beneficiary in the 42nd minute and dusted off the deserved 0: 1 break.

In the second section, the Swabians were trying to equalize, but the guests closer to 0: 2. Pereira missed the preliminary decision after a good opportunity. A little later, the “clubbers” but had to take the compensation with a lot of bad luck. After a cross from the left, the ball bounced in the center of Donis to Kabak, who pushed in the 74th minute flat into the right wing goal to 1: 1 compensation. After that, the game was interrupted for several minutes due to the video assistant, because the Franks on offside pleaded. But because the calibration failed in the Cologne cellar, the hit was then given. Until the end it was exciting but goals fell no more.

Thus, the Nuremberg donated two points and have on Friday against FC Schalke 04 the big chance to get a point on the VfB. Because none of the last four home games against the Royal Blues have lost the franc.

The Royal Blues, under the new leadership of interim coach Huub Stevens, present themselves in recent weeks as an absolute relegated. The lack of luck is now even the bad luck. But that’s the way it is in football. If you are in the bottom, you have to work your way up the drain, and the Schalke are just not enough. Bottom line, the runner-up six laps before the end of the season with 26 points the miserable 14th place in the table. Only five points have the Royal Blue ahead of the relegation.

In the home game against last week’s SGE Schalke played once more on the wall. The guests from Frankfurt set off like the fire department and literally overran the hosts. In the first seven minutes, Jovic would have already scored two goals. The best Schalke this afternoon, however, was keeper Nübel, who again proved his class. In the 13th minute Rebic was mad by Kostic staged. The Croatian nibbled Nübel and pushed for a deserved 0-1 lead. But from nowhere, the hosts came in person from Serdar to 1: 1 equalizer in the 21st minute. Embolo failed first at Trapp, Serdar had no trouble pushing the rebound over the line. In the 31st minute it came to the wrong decision of the 28th round. Rebic is clearly put by Bruma in the penalty area. The referee even looked at the pictures via video assistants and stuck to his questionable decision: No penalty. Thus, it went with the state of 1: 1 in the break.

After the break, both teams acted equally and it took until the injury time before it was was again turbulent. First Serdar Kostic fouled on the edge of the box and saw the yellow-red card. It was already his second relegation this season. The subsequent free kick was blocked. At the edge of the penalty area Kostic waited. Caligiuri played the ball clearly with his hand. Again, the referee had to try the video assistant. This time he pointed to the spot. Jovic grabbed the ball and turned into the deserved 1: 2 final score in the 99th minute.

For the Schalke it continues on Friday in Nuremberg, where they have brought from the last four games only a meager counter.
