European Cup: Gregorich helps Freiburg to the promotion

European Cup: Gregorich helps Freiburg to the promotion

European Cup

With his 13th competitive goal of the season on Thursday, Michael Gregorich played a crucial role in Freiburg’s early rise to the European League.

The Austrian Football Federation (ÖFB) striker scored the goal 2-0 (71) against the French Cup-winning Nantes, and in the end the Germans won 4-0. Freiburg can no longer be left out of the top two places in Group G on its way to winning the group, which will be rewarded with direct entry into the Round of 16. This is the third time Gregoritsch has scored in four EL matches.

Philipp Leinhart has been an active part of Freiburg’s defense all season, with Gregorich playing the “Joker” from the 65th minute. Lukas Kobler (26) gave the lead, but it was the Austrian who made a rather preliminary decision at the start of the final stage. After him, Kevin Shad (82) and Jeong Woo Young (87) also scored. With 12 points from four matches, Freiburg is ahead of Karabagh (7), Nantes (3) and Olympiacos Piraeus (1).

In addition to Freiburg, Fenerbahce Istanbul (2-1 in Larnaca) and Stade Rennes (1-0 against Dynamo Kyiv) in Group B got an early boarding ticket. Betis tied Sevilla 1-1 with its guest, Roma, to ensure an early lead.

Things are looking bleak for Florian Caines and Cologne at ECL

Ahead of the two remaining group matches against OGC Nice and 1. FC Slovacko, Cologne is third in the table (four points) and four points behind the Serbs. The match in the Serbian capital was stopped twice in the first half due to obstruction of vision after the Serbian fans used fireworks. After the riots in Nice, Cologne fans were not officially allowed into the stadium.

In the first group, the two clubs with the Austrian Legion are also threatened. The Scottish club Heart of Midlothian drew 5-1 with Peter Haring in Fiorentina, and the Latvian club lost 3-0 to Basaksehir with Kevin Friesenbechler until the 65th minute in Istanbul. Basaksehir tops the table with ten points, ahead of Fiorentina (7), Hearts (3) and fourth win (2).
