1860 Munich Sneak Through In DFB-Pokal
A penalty from Osei Owusu was the difference between 1860 Munich and FC Wegberg-Beeck
1860 Munich 1 - 0 FC Wegberg-Beeck
After drawing a non-league side in their opening fixture of the 2021 DFB-Pokal, 1860 Munich played a second-string side against FC Wegberg-Beeck in a bid to ensure their starting players would avoid injury prior to their opening Bundesliga fixture the following week.
It was a decision which did not appear to be too promising when Die Löwen entered the half time break without producing a clear chance. Sensing an opportunity, FC Wegberg-Beeck came out in the second half playing with high energy and aggression, seeing three players receive yellow cards in the space of fifteen minutes, applying constant pressure on the 1860 Munich players.
Despite the pressure, this approach would then become the downfall of FC Wegberg-Beeck when Aldin Kljajic brought down Robin Hack inside the box, receiving his second yellow card and putting his side down to ten players. It was Osei Owusu who stepped up to take the penalty for 1860 Munich, placing the ball into the bottom right corner to break the deadlock and seal victory for his side.
1860 Munich have drawn Bundesliga 2 side FC St. Pauli in the second round of DFB-Pokal, it is expected to be an interesting match with FC St. Pauli come away victorious in their two league fixtures last season.
TheLFCFan & MJK46:
Barrow is a player I have always wanted to bring in from past editions of FM, really looking forward to seeing what he can do.
Hoever will certainly be an upgrade at the position but whether a young player can be consistent at this level is yet to be seen.
