Arminia Bielefeld at the low point

When Frank Kramer made a little joke, his continuous-starred expression brightened briefly.

“You can see it, if you go now: the more technology, the better. Because then the technique can overrange the technology,” the coach of Arminia Bielefeld described the curious breakdown of the Torlinientechnik, which at the 0: 4 in Mainz on the Clock by referee Felix Zwayer mistakenly showed a goal of hosts. Only after the use of the video evidence, the supposed hit was not given correctly. But for the East Westphalia was no help.

“That must have been the low point,” warned Kramer. He no longer spoke about striking technology, but about the fourth defeat in series without its own gate. Before the spent seven end games starting with a home game against the VfB Stuttgart, Kramer has a convenience pause time to bring his team back on course. Otherwise the role of the 49-year-old is likely to be frighted critically in the season end spurt.

Escape in phrases

In Mainz, the Arminia fled in floors. Pause the mirror, the sleeves roll up, show another face, ask questions and find answers, led Kramer. Like the Bielefelder in almost two weeks to fix the offensive harmlessness and the defensive susceptibility specifically, which remained open to this memorable football afternoon.

Especially not only because of the technical ratio, but also because of the three foul feet, the Mainz was awarded within 15 minutes. After the sharpest gate of the current season by Jonathan Burkardt after 27 seconds, Moussa Niakhaté, Burkardt and Marcus Ingvartsen turned a penalty.

Goal note on Shiri watch

For the final score, the curious scene played a role after the 15th minute. After a header of Niakhaté, Zwayer had received much late at home on his watch. Mainz Jubel broke out, in the middle of the game, which was long ago continued. Zwayer went to the sideline and checked by video proof – and the supposed 2-0 did not count again.

“Curios, it was extraordinary,” Zwayer said. “We have heard that the system has been checked in the course of the game and that actually a malfunction has set.” The final clarification then took Zwayer himself. “I wanted to make myself a picture. It also offered me the opportunity to avenge the players authentic,” he said.

Prietl is in debt two penalty

So the Bielefelds were not at a short time with 0: 2, but only with 0: 1 rear. But then his players also gave himself “plump,” Kramer said he did not want to contradict as it was about the worst seasonal performance. “Every single player wants to play Bundesliga next year. And I have to see that. In the game I have to see it differently than today,” said the coach. Manuel Prietl, who had caused two penalties, acted as well: “In the end, it is so that every game will be a final.”

Kramer also contributed a technical proposal. “If it leads to a fair football, we hang everyone around the neck, so we know it for sure,” the coach joked.
