Dresden – Do you remember what you did on April 22nd, 2017? No? Not surprising after four and a half years. Dynamo of Dresden Chris Löwe should have the date in his head.

At that time he played in the English Championship with Huddersfield against Fulham FC. He scored the interim 1-0 for his colors at 1: 4. It was his last point goal – see you on Sunday!

A goal by the 32-year-old is remarkable in itself, but the one in Heidenheim was not only cream, it was scored from 18 meters with the right, Löwe’s actual mainstay.

With the 1: 1 (51st), Dresden believed in Heidenheim on the road to the point that was still stolen in stoppage time. Therefore, the joy at Leo was rather subdued.

“I see that the Heidenheimer slips, take the ball with him once. We actually had some goal-shooting practice that week, where we practiced such situations, even with the weak leg. Then he just goes in,” he describes the scene to compensate : “I was happy that he was there. In the end, that doesn’t bring me much good.”

Nevertheless, it was the reward for his outstanding season so far. The left-back has a run.

Leo would have liked to have accepted the congratulations on goal and point, but it shouldn’t have been.

Shortly after the kick-off and seconds before the final whistle, the Dresdeners were inattentive.

“When we conceded the first goal, we shoot ourselves a little in the leg and then run after it. But that happens in football. The decisive factor was the reaction we showed. It was particularly great in the second half in the first 20 or 25 minutes , very good, “he praised his troop.

It held up to the 90th, but then: “They had too many flanks and corners. It becomes dangerous when the opponent has five people who are eight meters tall. Then it is of course bitter that one slips through,” so Lion.

The 1: 2 was the second bankruptcy in a row, but Leo is not afraid that it will go further down the table.

“It’s the way that makes us all confident. We just have to keep working like this, then we’ll win games again. Keep working, maintain the intensity and that over the entire season, then I don’t worry.”

And maybe his next hit will help to gain points – it doesn’t have to take another four and a half years.
