Schalke vs Freiburg: New coach, same old fortunes for the 18th place place Miners. Freiburg hold on to 3rd position.

Schalke vs Freiburg: At Schalke 04, Thomas Reis’ arrival did not yet produce the intended results. On Sunday, the internal Bundesliga bottom line failed to raise a fist against SC Freiburg.

Schalke made the decision to replace Frank Kramer in the battle against relegation with Reis, who had just been fired by rival VfL Bochum. His debut with the club was a one to forget to say the least.

Vincenzo Grifo was principally responsible for that. In the final seconds of the first half, the six-time Italian international injured Schalke, where Thomas Ouwejan was hurt in the 34th minute. Grifo increased his output after playing for a little more than an hour.

In the Veltins-Arena, Mark Fleks had little to do with the home team’s three shots on goal. The Dutch goalkeeper’s sixth shutout of the Bundesliga season. Third place is a good one for Freiburg. One point separates runner-up Bayern Munich from the toppers Union Berlin.

Schalke vs Freiburg: Words from Thomas Reis

“We needed the first few minutes to launch our pressure, it didn’t work that well,” head coach Thomas Reis stated after the match. “And subsequently made the swap, which improved our performance and allowed us to pressure Freiburg into playing long balls. We initially encountered issues because we were aware of how frequently they wanted to move. When you play your transitional moments poorly and the last pass is delayed, it is incredibly unpleasant. We had the opportunity to make one or two more chances. We defended badly and gave up a goal to make it 0-1.”

“You must prevail in the duel. We get back into the sixteen and offer a good opportunity to fire at goal. We were kept busy in the second half by Freiburg. The penalty proved to be the sticking point in this case, which was regrettable. I find the thing annoying. I observed a team that gave it everything. You might have the chance to make the game more open, for instance, if we can catch up with Tom Krauss’ scene. Finally, it must be acknowledged that Freiburg’s triumph was not an unfair one,” Reis concluded.
