A point that does not feel as good as the week before


Finally, the miners cheered deservedly after the hard-won point win in Dortmund. After the 2: 2 against the 1. FC Cologne ruled on Saturday (2.12.) However, no party mood in the royal blue camp. "The counter does not feel as nice as after the derby," says Christian Heidel.

"We were hoping for more and are disappointed," said Guido Burgstaller, who scored his side's lead after 37 minutes. "I would rather not have scored a goal, but won it," said the Austrian, who benefited from his goal of Daniel Caligiuri's strong preparatory work. "I drew my attention aloud and Calli had the overview and the rest to play the ball perfectly across. That's what makes up our team spirit. The gate belongs to him. "

The 1-0 was also the half time result. "During the break we knew that a goal would not be enough for the win," reports Leon Goretzka. But instead of quickly replenish the 2: 0, conceded the team to captain Ralf Fährmann compensation. "We slept in phases a little bit," explains Amine Harit self-critical. Schalke, however, got the curve in the middle of the second half. The Moroccan himself was the one who scored again. "I am pleased to have scored my first goal in the VELTINS Arena," says the 20-year-old.

In the middle of the royal blue urge phase, however, the repeated equalizer fell. Sehrou Guirassy, who had already marked the 1-1, scored from the penalty spot. The penalty was preceded by a handball by Benjamin Stambouli. However, intentions can not be attributed to the French, as Christian Heidel thinks. "Benji got the ball from close range in the hand. He can not chop off, "said the sports director. "I have heard from many experts that intent must be there. That was not the case here. "Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, for example, had not decided on handball last week, when the Gabonese had beaten the ball with his hand to make it 1-0 over the line. Heidel: "But we can still discuss eternities, it will not help."

Guido Burgstaller explains that the team has to pull off the draw quickly. "It does not help anything. We will analyze the game in the next few days and then concentrate fully on the match against Borussia Mönchengladbach, "promises the attacker. "It will be a difficult task again."
