The 2016/17 2nd Bundesliga season promises to be an interesting one for the Lions of the TSV 1860 Munchen. In one of the last test matches ahead of the Lion’s League kick off on Sunday, August 7, 2016 against fellow First Bundesliga team SC Freiburg, Munich’s Blues have played 0:0 in a match between equals, at least during the first 15 minutes of the match we have witnessed.
In the past week there have been three spectacular transfers to the team of coach Kosta Runajic Croatian striker Ivica Olic returned to Munich, local club legend and fan favourite Stefan Aigner returned home and the young Brasilian talent Ribamar has also signed for the Munich-Giesing based team.
Merkur.de now even suspects that club investor and majority owner Hasan Ismaik might be becoming serious about his Munich sports investment. Although the official goal for this season is only to make sure the team secures another season in the second tier of German football, fans can start dreaming.
The TSV 1860 play his first match of the new season against fellow Bavarian (Franconia, to be more precise) team SpVgg Greuther Fürth, a team which usually finishes amongst the top 5 of the league. The first match on Sunday, August 7 might already give an idea about the direction in which the season could go.
The video below shows highlights of a match between Borussia Dortmund and the TSV 1860 Munchen which took place on July 16 and which the Lions won 1:0. This was before Aigner, Olic and Ribamar signed their contracts with the club.
