2.Liga, Round 30

Hertha BSC has got the job done: immediate promotion to the Bundesliga after one year in the wilderness. The clincher turned out to be difficult, as Sandhausen was desperately fighting for it’s life, and showed great defensive discipline. But Hertha broke through late to clebrate, and SVS is now probably without hope.

Braunschweig should be following Berlin soon, but Aue is fighting for it’s life and held on to a draw.

Kaiserslautern remains on course as they thumped Paderborn. FCK was clearly the stronger side, but it was more difficult than it turned out, as Paerborn gave them a match for about an hour.

FSV Frankfurt got a nice away win to 1860, and actually have a theoretical chance for promotion. The Bornheimers have had a fine season, given that they usually have to battle against relegation. Of course 1860 blows once more, disappointing their fans.

Aalen have proved they have what it takes on the field to belong in the 2.Liga. They blitzed a shockingly lame Union Berlin squad en route to an easy victory. They’ve done reasonably well and are nicely mid-table. However the next chapter is proving to be a bit more daunting. On the financial side, the club is still struggling to show they have the means to stay in the 2.Liga. Supposedly they must show access to another 6.5 million euros before they receive a 2.Liga license, so stay tuned.

Under new coach Peter Neururer there seems to be a new attitude in Bochum, who are struggling to stay alive. The hosts were rewarded with a nice crowd and proceeded to kick St.Pauli’s ass.

Dresden also got a critical win in the eastern derby with Cottbus. Unlike Bochum’s thumping win, Dynamo struggled, despite getting a man advantage for almost an hour. Dresden had a rough time with the visitors, who often came close to equalizing against the nervous homeside. In the end, Dynamo prevailed, and the last relegation position remains wide open.

On Monday, Köln needed a win at improved Duisburg to keep pace with Kaiserslautern. It was a pretty tall order, since the Zebras have been playing decently. However Köln looked good for the win, as they were dominating the match – but they forgot to score more goals and were duly punished in injury time. It’s not over, but Kaiserslautern is back in the driver’s seat.

Total attendance this round was 209,704 (avg 23,300) with a sell-out in Dresden.
