3.Liga, Round 27

Osnabrück struggled, but did enough against desperate Babelsberg to get the win and re-take the leadership over Karlsruhe. KSC stubbed their toe in a open match at Saarbrücken that somewhat surprisingly ended scoreless. FCS hit the post twice, but their defense also cleared off the line at least 3 times, so a draw is probably in order. Heidenheim thumped Darmstadt to remain in the hunt, but the relegation threatened 98ers did themselves no favors in the tight match as Benjamin Gorka insulted the ref and got his ass tossed, making a close match soon an FCH runaway. Münster was snowed out, but both PM and Bielefeld have a game in hand to potentially shake things up at the top.

Bielefeld was a big winner as they ripped Unterhaching, creeping closer.

A hard fought eastern derby in Halle. It looked like only a matter of time before a superior Chemnitz side would win the match, but HFC fought them off and then grabbed the lead. Then near the end they scored again to secure the points against relegation and leave the visitors with zilch for the season.

Also of note was Aachen kicking Stuttgart's ass. Admirable how Alemannia continues to battle on, trying to avoid relegation on the field, even though it will take a miracle to avoid the drop financially. 

This weekend saw total attendance of 43,736 (avg 6,248)

N = Neuling just promoted

1st line: Promotion to 2.Liga
2nd line: Promotion Playoff with 2.Liga 16th place
3rd line: Relegation to Regionalliga

Alemannia Aachen basically relegated due to pending insolvency.

One thought on “3.Liga, Round 27

  1. Not looking good. Not good at all. The only positive I take from this weeks game is that Heidenheim have made the fight for third spot interesting again. At least there is some mathematical possibility, but I don’t think the Lillien really have the cattle to make much of a difference this season. And their coach has shown nothing at all.
