Disappointing Season Opening for the Lions

By  Sunday, 7.8.2016, 19:34    News

The TSV 1860 Munich lost the opening match of the new season this afternoon, August 7 against Greuther Furth with 1-0 at the Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer Stadium in Furth in Franconia. But worse than the result of the match, was the way the team played with seven new players which came this summer, amongst them Croatian star Ivica Olić, merkur.de reports today, Sunday, August 7, 2016. “We aren’t playing at 100%,” Coach Kosta Runajic told the press after the match, adding that Spvgg Greuther Furth had deserved to win.

The TSV didn’t look well in the defence, the midfield nor the attack, even though Olić caused for some trouble for Furth in the beginning of the match and at the beginning of the second half. Both reporters for Merdur.de Ludwig Krammer, Claudius Mayer concluded with the conclusion: “Playing like that, you can’t win against anyone.”

The next chance for the team of the Lions to make a better impression is the home match against Arminia Bielefeld at the Allianz Arena on Sunday, August 14.
