Babelsberg celebrates the feeling
First division failure in DFB Cup
In the first main round of the DFB Cup the Bundesliga clubs were unaffected for a long time, but since the evening, Grutherford were eliminated. The Franks lost on penalties against Babelsburg in the fourth division. Nornberg and St. Paulie did not avoid surprises.
SV Babelsburg – Grutherford 5: 4 iE (2: 2, 1: 1)
Penalty Thriller in the Movie City: After a disappointing performance in the first round of the DFB Cup, the Bundesliga-promoted SpVgg Greuther Furth failed. At regional league club SV Babelsburg 03, the Franks had to concede defeat 4: 5 (2: 2.1: 1) and lost an emotional mood a week before the start of the season at the top of football. David Tango converted the decisive penalty for Brandenburg’s brave playing State Cup winner. Earlier, goalkeeper Marco Flegel divorced Fortis’ Maximilian Bauer.
Pranimir Harcotta took the lead in the 22nd minute through a penalty kick. Marcel Rash equalized for Babelsburg in front of 3030 spectators in the 37th minute. After Marcus Hoffman’s goal (70th minute) it seemed like a sensation. But Julian Green (85th) brought Ford back into the game – wasted in the end.
Exactly 22 years ago, Babelsberg had already won 1-0 against Spiviji Underhawking and knocked out the first division climber from the trophy. For Ford coach Stephen Lead, this could not be comforting. Against VfB Stuttgart, a significant increase in performance is needed next week to prevent a bad start in the Bundesliga.
SSV Ulm – 1. FC Nürnberg 0: 1 (0: 0)
Four-time DFB Cup winner 1. FC Nürnberg narrowly escaped the first main round, thus returning in favor of an old Cup humiliation. Coach Robert Klaus’s team won the regional division SSV Ulm 1-0 (0-0) in 1846, unlike in the previous season, passing the first hurdle. The goal was scored in the 79th minute by the recently converted Dylan Duman. The traditional club from Franconia had previously played only a draw in the first two second division games, thus missing the start they wanted to measure.
At the Danube Stadium in Ulm, the Nuremberg team rewarded themselves in the final stage for solid performance with an increase in chances. Fabian Nார்rnberger (50th) should have noticed the starting goal beforehand. However, in the final stage, the guests, fortunately, did not use the two best chances to equalize Ulm late. 20 years ago, FCN – then a Bundesliga team – lost 1: 2 to Ulm in the fifth division. This time Nuremberg won, although there were two clubs except two leagues between four leagues as there were in 2001. For Nuremberg, the second division season continues next weekend with a home game against Fortune Dசsseldorf.
1. FC Magdeburg – FC St. Paul’s 2: 3 (1: 2)
Third Division Club 1. FC Magdeburg lose surprise against FC St. Paul. The foreigner was defeated by a very efficient second division 2: 3 (1: 2), despite a clear chances of being overweight. In front of 14,405 spectators, Guido Burkestoller (3rd / 59th) and Djokovic Medic (40th) met Hamburg twice, with Chirod Conte (31st / 54th) equalizing each time.
Macbeth started for the third time with the same team, FC St Bowley started with a Dennis Smarck goal and the second change was Simon Magnioque in the storm. The guests started powerfully and led the way before FCM found each other – Burgustler hit the narrow corner. FCM had more game now as St. Paul’s waited and missed more opportunities. Although Conte was able to equalize after the counterattack, St Pauli Medic went for a lead after the title.
FCM continued to rely on fast outfielders and high pressure, with the second division only doing minimal. The balance fell again after a long ball – Conte turned around Smarsh and pushed inside. St. Bowley came back immediately, after receiving a free kick from Liard Bogarda, and Burkstoller finally dusted off. The guests dominated the game at will, but one of the guest players was always at all closures.
The Bundesliga-promoted VfL coach also had to go extra time in the afternoon with a 2-1 win over regional division Wuppertaler SV. For a long time, Oxburg battled it out 4-2 at Griffswalter SC and Peelfeld 6-3 at the regional SPVG borough. Promoted Pocham Bundesliga was eliminated 2-0 in the 3rd Division VfL Osnabrück.
