3.Liga, Round 2

The top clash was in Leipzig, and RedBull was probably the stronger side, but Münster gave indications why they are a co-favorite, as they toughed it out and grabbed a good away point against the new money side.

Osnabrück had problems with an aggressive Dortmund B, and wasted clear chances. As a result, it was a nervous struggle to maintain the lead and keep their perfect start.

Wehen vaulted to the top with a solid performance, but it certainly looks like Kickers are crap and have a lot of work to do.

Erfurt looked strong, largely controlling Halle in an eastern clash. The guests tried, but were basically overpowered.

Darmstadt largely outplayed their hosts in Stuttgart and probably should have won the match, as they were given a man advantage for about 25 minutes. Wasted opportunities almost did them in last season and they’ve already thrown away 4 points.

Rostock looked ho-hum at Elversberg, but a double strike b Blacha was enough to get them the points.

Heidenheim was the dominant team, but essentially dicked around and were duly punished as Regensburg grabbed an important away point. FCH showed last season they can be very streaky, but they’ll need to focus more if they are to contend.

Unterhaching got a late equalizer to stave off defeat, but Chemnitz looked the better team throughout.

Interesting match in Kiel as the newly promoted side debuted at home against Saarbrücken. After a ho-hum 1st half, the guests came out and immediately grabbed a lead. However Holstein reacted with aplomb and launched a brilliant 2nd half in which they overran FCS and won in a rout. An important match, sure to give them confidence.

Duisburg got it’s first 3rd division win since 1989 (when the won the then 3 division Oberliga Nordrhein). Burghausen was a bit unlucky, but wasted some promising chances and therefore deservedly lose.
