3.Liga, Round 35

Another exciting week at both ends of the table. Karlsruhe defended their lead with an emphatic thumping of Chemnitz, and the Badeners have one foot in the 2.Liga. One more win should just about do it. Münster had a rough time at Erfurt and could only draw. The host Erfurters gave no quarter and pressed the Preußen throughout the match, and fully deserved their point. This gave Bielefeld a window of opportunity, but they needed some luck against Halle. The visitors gave up and own goal in the dying seconds to allow Arminia leapfrog into 2nd. Chasing clubs Osnabrück and Heidenheim benefited as well, sneaking up clsoer to challenge for the playoff spot.

At the bottom end, some huge results in relegation battles. Darmstadt was more active in the Hessenderby with sinking Offenbach, and eventually were able to turn their advantage into goals and pick up a needed victory. Stuttgarter Kickers got a huge win against direct rival Babelsberg to keep their head above water. Dortmund II suffered a severe setback as they lost at home against tough Wehen. However they have some additional hope: Babelsberg and Dortmund will square off in a massive makeup match on Tuesday in Potsdam, and the BVB side also has a makeup with Erfurt.

A = Absteiger just Relegated 
N = Neuling just promoted

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

Aachen and Offenbach deducted two points for financial shenanigans
Aachen is also basically relegated due to pending insolvency.

  1. Everyone’s focussed on the CL matches with Dortmund and Bayern. The Babelsberg / Dortmund 2 match is just as important.

  2. Draw. Now a loss for Dortmund 2 to Erfurt and Darmstadt might just stay up. They still need to play well though and need to win games against Erfurt and Kickers. Nail biting stuff.
