2.Liga, Round 8

A hard fought clash in K-town, as both Kaiserslautern and Braunschweig remain undefeated. Level of play was quite good, and after taking the lead, FCK was pushed back by Braunschweig and weren’t able to raise their game to hold onto the lead. Good result for the visitors, who continue their stay at the top.

1. FC Köln may have been sucking, but a couple of things have happened. 1) They seem to have figured things out, and they’ve started stabilizing their free-fall. 2) They’re still a big club and hence a huge draw in the lower league. So a Paderborn sold-out match, and a good Köln performance to boot. The visitors were pressed by Paderborn, but showed solid organization and flexibility. Köln dominated at the start and presented the hosts with lots of problems, especially when moving forward. In the 2nd half Paderborn got back in the game, but the ex-Bundesligist raised their game and take home deserved points.

Union is another squad that seems in recovery. The Berliners won a hotly contested eastern derby with Cottbus, who themselves have been in fine form. The decisive moment was in the 71st minute, Union hanging on to a lead, and GK Haas stopped Cottbus’ Sanogo’s penalty. Overall, it was a deserved Union win, as they showed better attacking formation and discipline in defense.

Aalen is in great form, and here-to-fore sensation FSV Frankfurt is being brought back down to earth. Despite having more of the possession, Frankfurt looked way too clumsy, and Aalen was quick and decisive. So they kicked the Bornheimer’s ass and get a deserved win.

It was just a walk in the Biergarten for 1860, as they demolished a hapless Sandhausen side. The Lions could have scored double digits, but they basically scored a few and decided to relax. Probably their easiest win in ages.

Another disastrous outing for St.Pauli, Regensburg dominated and kicked their ass. The Paulistas fired their coach last week, so maybe they should un-fire him and can some players instead. They sucked. Jahn was considered an outsider to stay up, but they looked solid and confident, and even managed to attract a few fans. Good for them.

A Sachsen-derby in Dresden, and Dynamo gets the win, which they needed after some crap outings. They were the better side, jumped out in the 1st half, but didn’t go for the jugular. Erzgebirge has mostly sucked, and it took a long time, but they realized that Dynamo was dicking around too much and got back into the match very late in the 2nd half. Luckliy for the riot police, Dresden woke up and proceeded to pay more attention and got the finisher right at the end.

Bochum continues to be crap. Their fans should probably storm the club house or something. They continue to look listless and uninterested. Ingolstadt was having an easy time, and it wouldn’t have been surprising if they had coasted to the win. The hosts finally got their act together and scored late, preventing an embarrassing result.

Monday night sees Duisburg host Hertha. Hertha seems to have figured out the 2.Liga, and the Zebras have stunk, so you’d figure a Berlin win. But MSV showed some signs of life in the last outing, so maybe they’ll do something. Anything…
