Streich eager for Freiburg to move on from DFB-Pokal humiliation

After Tuesday's 1-5 DFB-Pokal defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig, Christian Streich said his team must now move on and concentrate on avenging the defeat on Saturday when the two teams meet again.
SC Freiburg were no match for RB Leipzig on Tuesday night, crashing out of the DFB-Pokal semifinals with a 1-5 defeat.

Speaking to reporters after the match, Freiburg coach Christian Streich was clearly eager to put the loss to Leipzig behind him.

"They were so fast and so good. I've already recovered," Streich said.

"Because who are we? We are SC Freiburg. If Leipzig put up a team like that, we are the underdogs. That was the case in Wolfsburg (6-0 defeat) and Dortmund (5-1 defeat). But we always bounced back."

Freiburg will get their chance for revenge on Saturday when they host Leipzig again, but only in the Bundesliga.

"Let's see if we can do the impossible on Saturday," Streich said.

"Today's game doesn't mean we don't have a chance there."
