In the cup, it's all about advancing and the Werkself did just that last night with a well-deserved 4:1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt. It took a long time for the Werkself to get going and the stars did not look good for a long time after the Hessians took an early 1:0 lead. But Alario can be relied on for penalties and standards are our new weapon, thank goodness. In the end, the red card for Tah has to be seen in a positive light, because I don't want to know how it would have turned out if Eintracht had reduced the score to 3:2 in that situation. Man of the Match for me, however, was once again Amiri, who I think has made the biggest leap of all in the current season and is indispensable.
Since the draw for the next cup round has already been made, we know that we'll be going to Essen, the league leaders in the Regionalliga. They kicked out Bielefeld and Düsseldorf in the first two rounds. But I think the Werkself is a different calibre and so we can look forward to the next round and hope that our logo will be in the draw again.
