But we must not depreciate the Essen, but it is still too early. "
Nevertheless, on the way back to the top of the Borussen another big chunk out of the way cleared. It was a tight victory, and even without the mandatory Zitterspinne seconds was also not in the Saarland, but the bottom line is deserved. The BVB had seamlessly to the benefit of adequate follow recent games, the action for an hour clearly dominated, but would break even more than "just" have to lead with 2:0. Daniel Ginczek after a double pass between Uwe Hünemeier Tyrala and Sebastian (20) and Daniel Gordon, the ball after a corner from Tyrala spectacularly with his head in the corner wuchtete (23), used the same first two big chances and were thus early forerunner of success. Other possibilities were the guests, however, unused, so just before the break when Gordon after Vrancic toll-free at responding goalkeeper failed.
From the middle of the second half changed the picture, Elversberg was lucky with his Einwechslungen, had now more from the game, made a permanent pressure and was found, after a header from goalscorer Martin Willmann (78) re-tuned. The space men threw everything forward now - and four minutes before closing, the BVB Riesendusel, after a shot of the interior carpentry posts for the good John Foch rescued.
