2.Liga, Round 24

Dresden got an abosultely crucial win against Leaders Hertha. Dynamo used the strong home support and clever positioning to neutralize the superior Berlin side. Fighting passionately for every ball, Dresden looked even the better side at times. However, they are incompetant in front of goal, so luckily a Hertha own goal ended up giving them the victory.

Kaiserslautern looked like crap against Bochum. It was impossible to guess that FCK is fighting for promotion, as they were actually outplayed by the visitors, who we all know are crap this season. In the end, perhaps Bochum was satisfied for a point away in their relegation battle, and FCK is fortunate they pulled the wool over their eyes.

1. FC Köln couldn’t take full advantage of Lautern’s crap performance. They dominated at FSV Frankfurt (the Bornheimers having a rare sellout), but wasted their chances, and when they were on target, FSV GK Klandt was in position. The home side fought hard, but were clearly inferior, but managed to take a late lead, which Köln eventually pegged back. Overall, given the fact that Köln
wasted too many opportunities, a deserved point for FSV on effort.

Union Berlin dominated from start to finish against Aue and move within potential striking distance of Kaiserslautern.

1860 dominated in a Bavarian derby against Ingolstadt, but as their wont, they dicked around and wasted a ton of chances. The Schanzer then counter-attacked late and kicked the Lions in the balls, stealing a point they didn’t deserve.

St.Pauli got critical points against relegation with a lucky win at Aalen. After a boring 1st half, hosts VfR took control and attacked furiously. Luck and poor finishing allowed Pauli to hold on, and then at the final whistle they were awarded a dubious penalty and completed their highway-robbery and grabbed all the points.

A weak match in Regensburg, but a critical relegation duel. Sandhausen was a bit more fortunate, and took their chances. Jahn had more of the play, but dicked around in front of goal and lose. This gives SVS some hope for getting back into safety, but it looks about over for Regensburg.

On Monday Duisburg played much better than usual, and Braunschweig ended up with a rare loss. The Zebras were compact, fighting well. Martin Exslager decided the match with a hammer shot from 16 meters. Braunschweig seemed stunned and was unable to mount a successful response, giving MSV desperately needed points…

Total attendance this round 140,911 (avg 15,657), with one sellout (Frankfurt) and an almost (Dresden).
