Bochum goes down to Freiburg, extending its winless streak to four games

FREIBURG, Germany (AP) — Vincenzo Grifo was the only one to score in a game of multiple chances as Freiburg beat Bayer Bochum 1-0 in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Gert Holtman hit the target twice for Bochum, who are looking for their first point of the season after three defeats including a 7-0 drubbing at home to Bayern Munich last weekend.

Michael Grigoritch hit the post for Freiburg and Neil Peterson also hit the crossbar for the home team. Pietersen then sent a long-range effort past Bochum goalkeeper Manuel Reimann, only to see the ball bounce in front of an empty net and go over.

Grifo scored at the third attempt in the 48th minute, when Reimann saved his penalty and another shot off the rebound. Grifo was lucky to get a third chance after Bochum’s defenders were too slow to clear the danger and he thankfully put away what proved to be the winning goal.

The spot-kick was awarded after Reimann took the ball and then held Roland Slay’s hands in an unsuccessful attempt to stop him. Sally felt dizzy and threw herself to the floor in the theater to make sure others noticed. Referee Marco Fritz awarded the penalty after consulting the video replay.

Freiburg coach Christian Streich was forced to change his starting line-up for the first time in the league this season due to Maximilian Egstein’s hand injury. Yank Kettle replaced the defensive midfielder.

Freiburg have three wins from four games, with the exception of an unfortunate loss to Borussia Dortmund.
