What a wild roller coaster ride in the Eastern classic! 1. FC Lok Leipzig wins the catch-up at Chemnitz FC 3: 2 (1: 0) and after their fifth win in a row they jump to third place in the Regionalliga Nordost.
Lok initially acted defensively after the surprising cup knockout in Bautzen. The hosts are different. Andis Shala missed the CFC leadership twice (9th, 11th). The locomotive only turns on steam in the 16th minute. Goal scorer Djamal Ziane comes after a pepper free kick to the header, Chemnitz keeper Jakub Jakubov prevents the 0: 1.
For CFC captain Robert Zickert, it will be the first duel against his ex-club after moving from Leipzig to Chemnitz in 2020. In the 27th minute, Zickert can only stop the broken Theo Ogbidi with a foul – penalty! Sascha Pfeffer hammers the ball under the crossbar to make it 0-1 without humor.
After the break, pepper shines as a strong preparer. The ex-Chemnitz man dances right into the penalty area and serves Bogdan Rangelov, who only has to push in – 0: 2 (51st). The decision? No! Felix Schimmel (65th) and Okan Kurt (76th) equalize with their goals – what a crazy game.
But it doesn’t stop there in front of 3265 spectators. 78th Minute: Leipzig’s Zak Paulo Piplica lays unrestrained in front of the goal on the right corner of the penalty area. There, the recently substituted Eric Voufack can easily slide in to make it 3-2 for Leipzig.
