2.Liga, Round 13

Leaders Braunschweig had a tough time at Aue. The Lions were getting schooled by an energetic Erzgebirge, but of course their superior talent was enough to hold off the hosts, and indeed, grab a somewhat fortunate lead. The 2nd half was more of the same, and Aue got the deserved equalizer. Still, it shows the progress Braunschweig has made, as in previous seasons they would have lost this.

Hertha BSC applied some major bitch-slapping, as they kicked Sandhausen’s ass. But although the Berliners were dominating, the hosts didn’t truly collapse until a bit after an hour, when GK Langer got red carded for a foul. Hertha smelled blood and proceeded to rip the hapless Sandhausers to shreds.

Neither side looked particularly good in Paderborn, where Kaiserslautern got a tough draw. The hosts tried to press for a win in a equal match, as they had a man advantage for the last 20 minutes, but no dice.

A tense hard fought eastern derby in Cottbus? Hardly. Energie jumped out to a quick lead and then coasted, as Dynamo was total crap. In the 2nd half Dresden woke up and played better, but were still too lame to really threaten the home side. Solga crowned the visitors incompetence by getting his ass tossed late in the match, so basically a total “Fail” for Dresden. They now are in a dead heat for relegation. Energie’s easy win keeps them in the promotion battle.

Ingolstadt continues their good season with a tough win over Regensburg. The match was ho-hum, but then went into over-drive in the last 20 minutes. A wild scramble saw the Schanzer get the upper hand, and Jahn didn’t help their cause by getting a player tossed and giving up a second penalty. FCI stays within striking distance of the leaders, whereas Jahn is right in the middle of the relegation mess.

Union Berlin was the dominant team hosting Aalen, but were unable to breakthrough in the hard fought match. Good point for Aalen.

Another sorry-ass performance by 1.FC Köln. Visitors Duisburg gifted them an advantage when Baljic got his ass tossed after only 20 minutes. But despite a man advantage, all that Köln could demonstrate was incompetence, hardly creating any chances. Given the circumstances, a good point for the Zebras.

1860 was somewhat lucky in getiing a win at FSV Frankfurt. The hosts were largely dominating, but too lame when it counted. The Lions break their run of crap results and get an away win. FSV should have got something from this, but you have to score goals.

Struggling St.Pauli and Bochum on Montagnacht-fussball…a 1-1 draw that helps neither side. St.Pauli was largely in control of the match, but at least Bochum showed energy in defense. The Hamburgers wasted too many chances, so really can’t complain.

One thought on “2.Liga, Round 13

  1. Great to see nearly 40,000 people braved the cold to watch a nil all draw between two bottom half teams. These are amazing stats really for a second division competition.

    And nearly 10,000 for a neighbourhood derby between Ingolstadt and Regensburg isn’t bad either given both cities probably lose some of their fan base to FC Hollywood and der Klub.
