SchücoArena - Bielefeld / Freiburg's Frensh midfielder Baptiste Santamaria was the unlucky fellow who "scored" the decisive only goal of the match by deflecting a ball with his shoulder into the own goal.Bad luck for SC Freiburg as Okugawa's sharp shot from narrow angle hit Santamaria this way.
For Arminia Bielefeld and coach Frank Kramer this was a massive relief as this goal meant the first home win this season and a significant jump in the standings table to rank 14. Pressure is on now for this weekend for the trailing teams! Arminia striker Fabian Klos was close to score in the first half once but all in all the team showed few scenes in front of the opponents goal.Freiburg tried to press but today repeated inaccuracies in the last third of the pitch impeded any dangerous occasions. In other matches Freiburg joker Nils Petersen (coach Christian Streich put him on today in minute 60) needed few balls to score - but today he did not get the desired passes.
In view of the today's defeat Freiburg's small chances to reach the Europa League have become minimal.
