That much is certain after the draw by the sailor Boris Herrmann, because the regional soccer team Rot-Weiss Essen welcomes the second division Holstein Kiel in the last eight. © Jan Woitas / zb / dpa The quarter-finals in the DFB-Pokal will take place on March 2nd and 3rd. “I'm not unhappy,” said Essen's trainer Christian Neidhardt, commenting on the draw on Sunday during the ARD “Sportschau” in Cologne.
Coach Filip Jicha hit the stomach that THW Kiel had to compete against Magdeburg at all - then there was also anger because of a controversial referee decision. But Flensburg only came to a draw.
Filip Jicha was really angry after the 24:24 against SC Magdeburg at the cold start after two weeks of corona quarantine. "I am extremely proud, but also angry. It is amazing what the boys have achieved when you consider that they sat on the couch until Saturday," said the coach of the record champions THW Kiel and wanted a verbal swipe at them Bosses of the handball Bundesliga do not resist: "We feel we are being treated unfairly. This is not how a member of the handball family is treated. I do not wish anyone that and I am curious to see what arrangement will be made if such a situation should arise again."
Fröhlich: Referees are doing an “overall good job”

"All in all, our referees do a good job - better than the current discussions suggest," said Fröhlich in an interview published on the homepage of the German Football Association (DFB).
Although the Kiel team could only complete one training session before the game, the HBL had rejected the THW application to postpone the game. "We are under enormous time pressure, but the players shouldn't suffer," said Jicha. "I have absolutely no understanding of that. It's dangerous for the body and you have to protect the players."
The lack of match practice was evident in the defending champion in the top game against Magdeburg. "It was an extremely tough game, we were almost always behind," said Kiel keeper Niklas Landin. Nevertheless, the Kielers, who moved up to third with 23: 3 points, could even have won the game. But in the last attack by THW, the referees only gave a free throw instead of seven meters. "That is unbelievable. You feel treated unfairly," said Jicha.
