The hope of promotion lives on: TSV 1860 can look forward to the most dramatic season finale in years

Munich – Just imagine the following scenario: On 14 May, TSV 1860, as most (and yes, also the media) had already spoken out of the promotion race, welcomes Borussia Dortmund II to the Grünwalder Stadium and creates with a victory on its own to take the plunge to the relegation zone. Does that sound too good to be true? Let’s wait!

After a day of play that the Lions could not have dreamed of better, that scenario could actually become a reality in just under two weeks. While 1860 confidently defeated TSV Havelse 3-0 on Saturday thanks to a strong second half, the direct neighbors made a mess in the table.

1860 can still get six points, Kaiserslautern only three

The current third place in the table, 1. FC Kaiserslautern, showed nerves in the parallel game at the sold out Betzenberg and suffered a 1: 3 defeat against Borussia Dortmund II. As a result, the Lions reduced the distance to the relegation zone to five points with their three points. What sounds like an almost insurmountable deficit with two playing days left can end in one last sprint of the season that can hardly be surpassed purely dramatically.

With the showdown against Havelse now top scorer in the 3rd league: Marcel Bär.

Background: The Lions still have their two regular matches against the already established champions 1. FC Magdeburg and Borussia Dortmund II in front of their chests. Lautern, on the other hand, will play the last match of the season next Sunday in Viktoria Cologne.

Originally, the game plan for the Red Devils would have included the match against Türkgücü on the last match day, but that will not take place after the Munich team stopped playing. Sixty can still get six points this season, Lautern only three.

If Kaiserslautern loses in Cologne: 1860 lures to a match point game in Grünwalder

The coming weekend is set to be extremely exciting. The players in six are in the grateful position that next Saturday they can build up pressure in the away game in Magdeburg and with a victory reduce the distance to Lautern to two points. The Palatinate only play in Cologne on Sunday – ideally with the warm breath of the lions breathing down their necks.

Should Lautern lose to Viktoria, Munich would actually have their match point game for relegation on the final match day against BVB, while Lautern would have to watch the match helplessly in front of the television. Those who support the lions should definitely cross their fingers for the people of Cologne next Sunday!

TSV 1860 narrowly missed promotion twice recently

The large number of subjunctive moods in this scenario shows that much must be gathered for Sechzger for the ascent to work in any way. Mathematically, the dream of returning to the second division is still possible. One would think that after the two barely missed promotions, the Lions would still have a good one in Fortuna.

“We go through to the end and see what comes out of it,” said midfield veteran Quirin Moll after the match: “You have to do your homework and move on to the last day of the match.” Coach Michael Köllner has apparently not given up on the upturn either. “The season is only over at last and not before!” Said the 52-year-old.

Regardless of promotion, the Munich team came closer to another very worthwhile goal for the season on Saturday: Fourth place, which means participation in the DFB Cup next season. For not only the top but also the bottom table neighbor made a mistake last Saturday.

Race for fourth place: TSV 1860 gets air

At SC Freiburg II, VfL Osnabrück suffered a surprising 4-1 defeat. Before the game day, Lower Saxony was on point with 1860 and was only in fifth place due to the goal difference being one goal worse. Now the two clubs are not only separated by three points, but also by seven goals. At the very least, this last minimum target should never be abandoned.

The Lions still have a lot to gain in the next two weeks – but also to lose. It could be the most gripping and memorable season finale in years!
