Many people might not like it, but I see a positive for the BL in a potential Bundesliga-top-team learning how to win big games.


xtoonator

That was the closest Schlotterbeck will ever get to silverware for the next five years


Kind_Mulberry_3512

They deserve it but damn it hurts


HeilWerneckLuk

Fuck off. I was supporting Freiburg so much and they end with no CL and Pokal


Homygod319

Leipzig deserved it tbh freiburg with a man advantage couldn't take advantage


LilMiloMiloMilo

With the amount of luck Freiburg had tonight. We can't say Leipzig's win is undeserved


xtoonator

Just deserved. Especially after this referee performance


GERD_4EVERTHEBEST

I think you meant to say non-perfomance.


xtoonator

I’m out of words. How’s that goal ok. How’s that not a pen?


GERD_4EVERTHEBEST

You might not like them but they deserve it.


a3592

nkunku deserves a silverware at least for his phenomenal performance this year


GERD_4EVERTHEBEST

I hope he stays in the Bundesliga for as long as possible.


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Yikes


xTatamo

dont downvote me pls i´m just happy for the rb bois


jsnamaok

Nobody has any problem with the players, they deserve it for sure.


13s_number12

A little piece of football just died. Today was not a good day for football overall


xtoonator

You’re right. The referee performance was embarrassing


julesvr5

As much as I dislike it, it isn't undeserved. Questionable goal for Freiburg, from 57th Minute onwards with 1 man more and can't make anything out of it.


footysocc

big yikes, money buys dreams


Na-ni_Gap

Dreams can't be buy


a3592

keven schottlerbeck and nico brothers?


julesvr5

Yes. Kevin is 2 years older


mrfocus22

Fuckity fuck


Goldfischglas

How can you ever trust your player again when he makes such a tackle in the 117th minute of a cup finale? I am still not over how stupid that was


XeroVeil

Ugh, Freiburg bottled this, I feel it in my fucking bones.


GERD_4EVERTHEBEST

It will be fun watching penalties because Bayern is not involved. I can't wait.


jsnamaok

There's no way Freiburg are gonna win on pens I'm afraid. Maybe they'll pull off a shocker but Forsberg, Szoboszlai, Nkunku etc..


xTatamo

forsberg is on the bench -.-


jsnamaok

True.


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Hopefully this ages terribly


jsnamaok

Lol I hope so.


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Pens AGAIN, FA Cup final first, then the EL final, now this!


xTatamo

i hope gulasch can save some


xtoonator

Imagine that being Bayern vs Dortmund The next day everyone would be talking about the refs having a Bayern bonus


xTatamo

just the first goal alone


xtoonator

The bullshit about the first goal is that if it was the guy handballing scoring the goal it wouldn’t count - disgusting rule


mrfocus22

Based ref is based I am completely biased


julesvr5

Technically he played the ball


a3592

hate the cans but thats 100% penalty and the ref doesnt wanna ruin the match i guess xD even with var it went off wow


julesvr5

He played the ball. The question is, is that enough to not call it a pen. Was hard to see but the ball slightly jumped


Goldfischglas

They showed it again from a different angle and it looked like he clearly played the ball from there


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Hard to see at first but after the replays you can see it


Goldfischglas

Prolly no pen but the dumbest tackle in history, why does he risk that


Kind_Mulberry_3512

No penalty!?!?!? WHAT?!?!?


julesvr5

Played the ball, even though it was just like a breeze passing by. For the ref it was enough.


julesvr5

Freiburg with so much luck. What a slight touch this was


jsnamaok

This ref has been fucking terrible all game..


OneBeerAndWhiskeyPls

my god, that was the slightest touch


NifferEUW

Holy!!


footysocc

LETS GOOOO


xtoonator

If that’s not a pen …


Goodfella7

fuck noo why


footysocc

fuck off


julesvr5

How stupid can someone be, this is ridiculous


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Pen or no pen? I think it is, looks like a dive at first but when you look at it closely Höfler nicks Olmo's right leg


julesvr5

He plays the ball veeeeeery slightly, otherwise clear foul and pen. No dive at all


Current-Percentage-4

That’s a pen


FOKvothe

Has to be a penalty


Insanel0l

Fucking hell Freiburg


NifferEUW

Yoooo this match


xTatamo

pen


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Freiburg are cursed


a3592

wheres angelino ?


Goldfischglas

It hurts to see how good Schlotterbeck already is lol


Hsjak500

Schlotterbeck is so damn good


Goodfella7

How can you not bury that shot jesus fucking christ


julesvr5

That HAS to be the lead for Freiburg, what the hell...


DiviShrubbery

Sorry guys, but Schweinsteiger as a pundit... How long did he do this job without improving a single bit? Kahn became a lot better over time, but Schweinsteiger is not made for this.


julesvr5

Schweini was always good until he opened his mouth. He never was a good speaker in interviews.


DiviShrubbery

I have to agree - it's never been this strength. But how on earth did they think he might be a good pundit? Clearly just looked to get a big name.


xTatamo

they saw his toom baumarkt commercials


julesvr5

You sure it wasn't the funny chips clip?


Pale-Cookie2983

This commentator on ESPN is so boring.


mrfocus22

Ref going full Oprah with his yellow cards.


xtoonator

So the goal was no handball and this was no handball either? We will have some fun discussions ahead


NifferEUW

Thought he was pointing at the penalty spot for a second..


Insanel0l

This could turn into a big chokejob


Homygod319

Had to be nkunku


xtoonator

Freaking deserved!


julesvr5

Not a good look by Flekken imo


mrfocus22

Of course Nkunku


NifferEUW

Who else. We got a match boys


xTatamo

break the bank for him do it


julesvr5

Hasn't really done anything noteworthy so far. Scores after a GK mistake. "NOW SPLASH 70M+ ON HIM, DO IT! YOU SEE HE IS WORTH IT!"


xtoonator

We first need a new Brazzo. Deals like that are too big for him. I mean he needs to negotiate …


julesvr5

With Schlotterbeck Dortmund gets a guy who actually has mentality


Insanel0l

He’s paired with Süle, so that evens out


footysocc

plus Reus


julesvr5

Hope Schlotte gets some Döner too


NifferEUW

I love Schlotterbeck, he’s gonna be great for years to come


xTatamo

we buy him or get him for free just wait


footysocc

fuck, Schlotterbeck could be huge for BVB


OneBeerAndWhiskeyPls

lets goooooo


footysocc

hahahahhaa


julesvr5

I think if he crosses the way behind him he would actually be able to close the line a little as Höfler(höhler?) was drifting outwards


NifferEUW

Bro lol


mrfocus22

Literally jumped off my sofa with my arms in the air. Like, let him take the chance. Your team is gonna be down a player for a third of the game now.


NifferEUW

Yeah terrible decision


julesvr5

WHAT IS HAPPENING


dabayer

As much as i want Freiburg to win, i still 100% believe its a handball or should be.


footysocc

True


xtoonator

Nagelsmann with a look as if he just read the news that Kalajdzic prefers to join Dortmund instead of us


mrfocus22

Before the goal, the Cans looked dominant. Since the goal, the Cans seem rattled.


julesvr5

Leipzig before the goal: can Leipzig since the goal: can't


julesvr5

Should be a yellow for Laimer there imo


Insanel0l

I like Sallai


Thraff1c

The more I see the goal, the more I don't like that it stood tbh.


julesvr5

Did you here the reasoning or explanation? Kinda matches with mine and in this regard it do makes sense


Thraff1c

I'm not talking about if it makes sense here, it's more that I dislike that a clear touch with the hand directly leads to a goal.


julesvr5

Ah, yeah that's understandable. I would be annoyed too, probably, if I weren't pro Freiburg here.


mrfocus22

Really? Opposite for me. It's clear his first touch was shit but also that there was zero intention of handball and his arm was in a natural position.


Thraff1c

I just don't like that the hand ball was decisive for setting up the shot, and there wasn't another passing sequence in between, only the shot. I liked the rule that any direct involvement of the hand before a goal leads to the annulment.


mrfocus22

Yeah I understand. Personally I like "natural position" rule. I know some defenders are really good at jumping and keeping their hands close to their body, but I hated seeing handball penalties being given against defended who would naturally raise their arms when jumping to maintain balance and the ball would just happen to touch their arm.


xTatamo

îts a scandal if that goal decides this game, clear pass with his hand


julesvr5

While it was hand ball, that is not a pass. More of a deflection.


julesvr5

The ref should be careful to not lose the game, it's not even 30min played


Damyxs

Very enjoyable game.


julesvr5

I can feel the passion of Schlotte right there


Insanel0l

That should’ve been a handball, no?


julesvr5

Maybe because it was unintentional and it doesn't benefit the player itself as he lost the ball due to this. Expected a call back to 100% though


NifferEUW

Wait what? How did VAR allow that?


mrfocus22

I think the reasoning is the hand wasn't in an unnatural position and he's isn't the goal scorer? Not sure how the handball is written these days, seems like it changes every few years anyways.


julesvr5

Commentary brought the same explanation


xTatamo

how do you give that goal lol


julesvr5

Holy moly it counts!?!


mrfocus22

Guacamole Looks like it


julesvr5

Cheers!


footysocc

JAWOLLL


julesvr5

Yes!


julesvr5

Ah fuck, clearly handball


mrfocus22

So... Uh, we're all cheering for Freiburg right?


U-701

Sure, fuck the cans Freiburg has the soul and heart, they deserve it


julesvr5

Of course


xTatamo

i´m not sry \^\^


mrfocus22

No worries. I'm curious to hear why?


xTatamo

i just dont hate rb that much


mrfocus22

Fair enough. As a club, imo, you can't say they are poorly run. Their scouting is obviously on point, just look at our last summer transfer window...


xTatamo

as long they dont outspent us and steal our players every year i´m good
