Freiburg goalkeeper responsible for ALL THREE Hamburg goals | inside World Soccer

Oliver Baumann had a day to forget on Sunday as the Freiburg goalkeeper was at fault in all goals scored by Hamburg in a 3-0 defeat at the Mage Solar Stadion.

Baumann's difficulties began on 37 minutes when he raced off his line but misjudged the bounce of a long ball to Maximilian Beister, who had no trouble in slotting the ball home into the unguarded goal.

There could only be one person to take the blame for the goal, yet the home fans were exemplarily forgiving, chanting Baumann's name to lift his spirits.

But it clearly did not have the desired effect as the custodian made a similar error early in the second half to allow Pierre-Michel Lasogga to score his sixth goal in the last four games.

A miserable performance was completed when Baumann spilled a shot from Beister to the path of Rafael van der Vaart, who made it three and ended Freiburg's hopes after little over an hour of the game.

"For the first mistake, I misjudged the flight of the ball, for the second I tried to intercept it, and the third I should have done much better," Baumann explained afterwards.

"I'll come back stronger and there's no reason to doubt my abilities."

Freiburg teammate Julian Schuster added: "Oliver has won us plenty of points down the years so of course we'll still support him.

"It's unfortunate this happened but it doesn't make us doubt him. We just need to put it behind us as quickly as possible and move on."
