Kiez kickers are not given a chance and are now ahead of their city rivals from Hamburg in the second division table. There is also a movement at the top – Paderborn goes down Regensburg.
Big win for FC St Pauli: The Kickers broke up FC Ingolstadt on Sunday 4:1 (1:0) and moved into third place in the second division table. Pauli (13 points) is now one point ahead of Rothussen.
Luca Milan Zander (34th minute), Maximilian Dettgen (50th), Guido Burgstaller (61) and Christopher Buchtmann (73) scored the favorites’ goals in a one-sided match. 19-year-old Merlin Rolle cut his first Serie A goal down to 1:3 for the FCI. But the best player in the penultimate standings was goalkeeper Fabijan Pontic, who prevented an even bigger defeat.
While the rookie side suffered their fifth defeat in Game Seven of the season, St. Pauli still had an impeccable home record: all four games were won at Millerntor Stadium. Saturday’s first away win should come in the derby in Karlsruhe.
Paderborn explains Aue
However, Paderborn showed FC Erzberg Owe once again and climbed to the top of the table. After 8:3 the previous season, the Ostwestfalen reached 4:1 (3:0) in Aue on Sunday. With this, Paderborn outperformed SV Jahn Regensburg with the same number of points thanks to the number of goals scored. Marco Stebermann (fourth) used the first attack to take the lead, before Sven Michel (26) and Felix Platt (38) surged ahead of the change. After the restart, he met Stiepermann again (48). Aue could only be limited to 5,150 spectators by Babacar Gueye (51st place).
New Auer coach Alexei Shepelevsky changed his starting lineup to two positions, bringing in newcomer Nikola Troic behind leaders Babacar Gui and Antonio Mance for the first time. Aue started with a lot of pressure and commitment. But Paderborn was more effective. Stiebermann, who was made his first starting lineup by coach Lukas Kwasniuk, withdrew from 17 meters and advanced with a predictable shot into the lower right corner.
Darmstadt disturbs Dresden
SV Darmstadt 98 challenged an early dismissal and the second tier promotion team SG Dynamo Dresden spoiled the jump in the promotion ranks. The Saxons suffered a 0:1 (0:1) defeat in front of 7,020 spectators on the field at Böllenfalltor on Sunday. Tobias Kembe (15) scored the winning goal for Darmstadt.
Südhessen had to play in the minority for a long time because Fabian Schnellhardt saw the red card for foul play (8th). But Dresden also had to play the match to ten points after the yellow and red card of Julius Kade (repetition of foul play, 71). Dynamo received the third defeat in a row.
