SSV Jahn Regensburg failed to score in the sixth game in a row. A red card makes it even more difficult for the harmless Oberpfälzer at SC Paderborn.
Paderborn (dpa / lby) - SSV Jahn Regensburg simply can't score any more goals. The Upper Palatinate lost their away game against table leaders SC Paderborn 0:3 (0:1) and remained in the 2nd Bundesliga for the sixth time in a row without their own goal. "It's not a nice feeling when you play so many games without a goal," said midfielder Max Thalhammer on Saturday after his team's sixth game without a win.
Thalhammer continued to criticize his Regensburgers above all for creating chances. "That's the first thing we need to work on." The red card for Steve Breitkreuz in the 68th minute after an emergency brake on Felix Platte made it even more difficult for the Upper Palatinate in the game.
Whether red card or not - the past games show that Regensburg have a hard time scoring goals. In the previous zero number against Holstein Kiel, the SSV seemed to have gained security and to be able to break out of the negative series.
But the defeat in Paderborn showed that the Upper Palatinate still have a lot of work to do if they finally want to get out of their lows. "We currently have too little penetrating power and lose the balls too quickly," criticized coach Mersad Selimbegovic.
Nevertheless, the next goalless game must be "checked off". According to the Jahn trainer, the aim is "to finally score a goal and score again next week." Regensburg's next opponent is FC St. Pauli on Sunday.
