Freiburg Scores Last-Minute to Knock Out Tuchel’s Triple Dreams in DFB-Pokal
In a game that saw high levels of intensity and a closely contested match between two sides, it was Freiburg who emerged victorious over their illustrious opponents, Paris Saint-Germain. With a last-minute winner, it was the least the German side deserved after working tirelessly for the entire game. PSG, on the other hand, will rue the opportunities they squandered in the final third.
The match started with PSG as the favourites, given their star-studded team and history of success. However, Freiburg was up for the challenge and pressed PSG high up the pitch from the start. This approach paid dividends in the 35th minute when Vincenzo Grifo scored after a brilliant solo run.
PSG, being no strangers to coming back from behind, started the second half with renewed purpose. Their talisman, Kylian Mbappe, scored a sublime equalizer in the 52nd minute. However, despite their efforts, they were unable to find the winner, with the Freiburg defence holding firm.
The Last Minute Drama
With a tense match and the end in sight, it was Freiburg who rose to the occasion. In the 90th minute, Luca Waldschmidt scored the decisive goal, sending the home fans into a frenzy. PSG tried to reply quickly but the Freiburg defence stood firm till the final whistle.
The End of Triple Dreams
With PSG still chasing domestic and European honours, this defeat is a significant blow to their aspirations of winning the treble. Their manager, Thomas Tuchel, will be disappointed with the performance of his team, even though they were not at full strength. The Parisians will now have to regroup and shift their focus to their remaining competitions.
