Later 2-1 win against Uerdingen
No stopping: After the late 2-1 victory against KFC Uerdingen, players and supporters of VfL Osnabrück celebrate at the corner flag.
The earthquake set in the third minute of stoppage time: Once again, the VfL Osnabrück had thrown everything in the top match against KFC Uerdingen to the front, as the fat possibility of late victory offered: Guest defender Manuel Konrad had the ball in the penalty area with the Played hands, referee Daniel Schlager immediately gave the legitimate penalty. Alvarez took over before the bursting Osnabrück Fankurve the responsibility, KFC keeper René Vollath loaded and turned off in collective cheering towards corner flag. "Ingenious", the matchwinner described the current situation of his team, standing in first place the distance to the relegation place on six counters extended, at "Telekom Sport".
Praise for goalscorer Danneberg
It had looked in an intense and atmospheric top match shortly after half time not at all that the VfL against the promoted from Uerdingen should score three points. Because Christopher Schorch had brought the guests by header in the lead. But only seven minutes later, the Lila Weisses in the person of Tim Danneberg found the right answer: After Alvarez's free-kick, the midfielder, who had joined the team for the injured Ulrich Taffertshofer, scored the 1-1. "Tim had to wait a long time, then comes that standard, because you can see his quality and he makes the goal, which makes me unbelievable," said coach Thioune, who experienced a rollercoaster of emotions after the break: "We're back come in sluggish, then get a punch, stagger briefly, but then again fully there. "

When Uerdingen's Maximilian Beister had flown off the field in the 66th minute, the pendulum finally knocked out in favor of Osnabrück. However, it was only in stoppage time that VfL's impulsive phase, which also had post-bad luck on a deflected shot from Bashkim Renneke, was rewarded with Alvarez's penalty goal. "It sounds stupid, but that requires eggs in the 93rd minute, as the saying goes," said Thioune, who "always had the hope of the lucky punch" – and the goal in the final, where the final whistle was almost lost, no longer kept in his coaching zone. "Incredible", described the 44-year-old the moment and had almost as hard to find the right words as midfielder Danneberg. "It's generally crazy," said the 32-year-old. "I have only one word: cool!"

"It's a chaos of emotions right now, full of euphoria, which is just awesome and what we have to carry as long as possible," thought the veteran ahead. "It can go anywhere, we know how last season went, we have to keep working, like the whole time," added Alvarez. The fact that VfL will not be willing to relinquish the comfortable six-point advantage over the relegation ranks made Danneberg clear: "You can rely on that: we kick every single one's ass."
