Rostock is not taking chances
Terodde’s 10th goal made Schalke win
In the first match of the eighth round of the second German Bundesliga, Simone Tyrudy makes the decision again. Schalke goal guarantees the ninth and tenth hits this season. Newcomers Rostock play well, but he does not have a reliable end player.
Second Division goals 151 and 152 by Simone Tyrodi and a sudden change of goalkeeper gave the troubled Bundesliga Schalke 04 a much-needed victory. The Royal Blues won 2-0 (1-0) against newly promoted Hansa Rostock and are once again close to the first set.
Tyrodi, who is only one goal away from Dieter Schneider’s record in the second division, scored a goal shortly before the first half and shortly after (42nd and 49th places). In addition, a header from the striker fell on the post (57). The 33-year-old has scored 10 of Schalke’s 13 goals this season and has set up two more. Midfielder Dominic Drexler of Sky said: “We are lucky to have Simon. We hit a cold, that was the key. That’s how you pull your opponent.”
Goalkeeper Martin Friesel, who replaced Ralf Varmann, kept a clean sheet on his debut for Schalke 04. “Friesel has shown that he desperately wants to join the team,” coach Dimitrios Gramuzis said before the start of the Sport 1 match. Freeman, who fumbled in 1:2 against Karlsruher SC, “didn’t quite come out”. Sporting director Reuven Schroeder described the sudden goalkeeper change as “a purely sporting decision up to the coach.”
Farman contributed to the victories against Fortuna Dusseldorf (3:1) and at SC Paderborn (1:0) with strong displays. Austrian player Freisel, who was last signed with Dutch first-division club ADO Den Haag, was Schalke’s third goalkeeper in the eighth round. In the first two matches, Michael Langer, who tore his cruciate ligament during training, stood between the two posts.
Freisel, a regular goalkeeper in the second division at SV Sandhausen for a year and a half, prevented an early deficit with a superb save by Nick Umladic (11th place). Schalke initially couldn’t handle the Rostockers approaching hard – but they scored the first: Tyrode used a sharp cross from Thomas Oegan to score his ninth goal of the season. Terodde also took advantage of the guests’ second chance. Seconds before, Friesel blocked the tie.
