It was time for the Vikings to renew the rivalry with GAS. Both teams have been struggling to get points on the board so in terms of relegation this was a really important encounter. As Marcus was unavailable it was Breitner who took on the keeper position. Ruj and Joel were missing as well.
Lineup: Breitner; Hallas, Mikkel, Stein, A; Fran, Chris, Martin V, Jannik; Mofok, Claus.
During first half there was not a lot separating the two teams. Vikings had the better chances as Chris hit the crossbar and Claus had a goal disallowed. It seemed to be goalless until the strong German midfielder broke through and passed the ball across goal to an unmarked player. GAS held on to their lead until halftime where the score was 0-1.
In second half the Vikings looked for the equalizer but the team never really managed to put GAS under pressure. It was mostly chances from long throw-ins and corner kicks but nothing ever looked too dangerous. But with only one goal down it wouldn’t take much to turn the game around and the GAS players started to look nervous as they couldn’t close the game. However they did get the second goal as the referee awarded a penalty. For a moment it looked as if Stein had saved the GAS players shot with a great sliding tackle but the ref gave the penalty anyway. Minutes later GAS scored again and Vikings lost 0-3.
