For our second, the first Saar derby of the young league season was on Sunday - in the away game at SV Röchling Völklingen, our team was able to continue the positive run of the first games and score the next points with the 1-0 success.
“The team was again very disciplined and had a very good attitude throughout the game,” said U21 coach Marco Emich. This was particularly evident in a stable defensive performance. The hosts from Völklingen rarely got through, and when they did, Josh Blankenburg was awake in the SVE gate and kept the box clean. On the other hand, our team had two or three good opportunities, especially in the first half, but did not use them consistently. Except for the 37th minute. After a nice, precise cross from Jannis Gabler, Julius Becker was there and scored the 1-0 for our team! After the break, there were a few more opportunities to put the lid on, but Völklingen's keeper kept his team in the game. Thanks to the narrow lead, it remained exciting until the end, but our U21s had the events on the pitch largely under control and didn't let anything burn. "In the end, the victory wasn't undeserved," said Emich: "We are very happy that we were able to win in Völklingen."
This means that the U21s also ended an overall successful English opening week with a strong seven points from three games. Next weekend, the next away derby will continue when our second competitor competes at FV Diefflen on Saturday, September 19th at 15.30:XNUMX p.m.
