3.Liga, Round 8

The leaders were brought back to earth as the 3.Liga tightened up. Bielefeld went down at Unterhaching in an exciting match, a pity that nobody goes out to the Muncih suburbs to watch. After a couple of bad outings, Unterhaching is back in the hunt.

Osnabrück was somewhat unlucky, as their GK Riemann was red-carded in injury time, leading to the winning penalty for Babelsberg. VfL played well in the 2nd half, but the Potsdamers needed the points, and the extra man for 45 minutes proved to be enough. Huge win for Babelsberg of course, since they’ll be in the thick of the relegation battle all season long.

Heidenheim is the new table-topper, as they had a hard fought win at Darmstadt. FCH has been quite good in the 3.Liga since coming from nowhere a couple of seasons ago.

The relegated 2.Liga teams haven’t impressed at all yet, but at least one gave a sign that they’ve finally adjusted and are ready to make some moves:

Karlsruhe got back on track with a solid 3-0 win over Saarbrücken. Despite a crap season start, KSC fans still turned out and were rewarded with the best effort of the season. The 1st half was balanced, but KSC took control after the restart and overran FCS.

Aachen remains in crisis. They went down early against Kickers, and never really got in traction. For the most part, they were outplayed.

Rostock continues to struggle. They sucked badly in the 1st half, and were booed off the field at halftime by their irate fans. Hansa raised their game afterwards, but it only meant a draw with Wehen. This could get ugly, as the eastern fan blocks are definitely not the “wine and brie” crowd and use almost any excuse to riot.

Erfurt fired their coach a couple of weeks ago, after the disastrous start. It appears to have had some impact, as they thumped Dortmund II and move off the bottom of the table.

One thought on “3.Liga, Round 8

  1. Besides the fact Heidenheim kicked our arse, I quite like them as a club. They’ve show great resolve to get to the 3. Liga three seasons ago and have held their own in the top 6 since then.

    Darmstadt appear to be stuck in the bottom group and if they don’t get their shit together soon, will play another season like last year just trying to stay up.

    Disappointing crowd at the Boellenfaltor too. They normally get around 7-8000, but looks like the teams performance is affecting them. Don’t think I’ll get a ticket to Frankfurter Flughafen just yet.
