3.Liga, Round 25

Leaders Karlsruhe showed they are serious about staying on top, and they ripped Aachen to shreds away. On Sunday, Osnabrück kept pace with a hard fouht win over Stuttgart.

Bielefeld remained on track as they strangled Erfurt.

Heidenheim is back in the promotion race, as they dumped Preußen Münster to join the fray.
By and large the hosts outplayed their guests, and they deserved their win. FCH had been sliding along, but they’ve recently put things back together and look serious about challenging.

A weak relegation eastern duel, but Halle’s win over Babelsberg gives a bit of breathing room for HFC. The Potsdamers didn’t help themselves as Matthias Kühne got his ass tossed right after the restart.

There are a couple of makeup games scheduled for midweek, the biggest is the critical relegation battle as Darmstadt hosts Babelsberg. The 98ers desperately need a win, else they lose virtually all hope.

Kickers Offenbach didn’t play, but they fired head coach Ari van Lent midweek. Despite a great run in the DFB-Cup, Offenbach has basically stunk in league, where they were expected (by management and fans) to contend for promotion.
