2.Liga, Round 4

Apparently last season’s beat-down wasn’t enough for Greuther Fürth, and they’ve indicated they want to return to the Bundesliga for more punishment immediately. The leaders faced a strong Karlsruhe side, but good organization and wil-power eventually saw them through to a good result. KSC had the upper hand early, but the increased Greuther pressure eventually had them breaking.

Kaiserslautern dicked around too much against Aue, as this should have been a lopsoded crushing win. Instead FCK fell asleep and were only awakened when Aue kicked them in the balls. To their credit, the hosts immediately bounced back and then remained a bit less lackadaisical in seeing the game out.

Köln has largely sucked so far, mainly because they can’t score. So having Sandhausen show up at least meant they could finally get a win, which they did, albeit making it harder for themselves than it needed to be.

A wild Ostwestfalen derby saw Bielefeld come back against Paderborn, an uphill battle all the way.

Exciting match between two familiar sides, Bochum and St.Pauli. The hosts dominated, but St.Pauli’s Verhoek turned the game on it’s head with a double. Bochum attacked furiously and were eventually rewarded with an equalizer, but the Hamburgers held firm and escape with a point.

Boring match in München in which should have been decent, as it’s a Bavarian derby. But both 1860 and Ingolstadt apparently didn’t want to be there, and fittingly this was decided in the Lions favor by an own goal.

Cottbus ripped Aalen’s ass, giving notice that they could be a force to reckon with. This might be the 3rd time that Cottbus makes it’s way to the top flight, never an enjoyable prospect for the Bundesliga squads. The Stadion der Freundschaft is a tough place to play, and Aalen felt the full brunt.

Dresden was shockingly crap at home to FSV Frankfurt and got owned. Dynamo was so bad they never even managed a decent shot. Meanwhile the Bornheimers did whatever they wanted, and Albanian international Edmon Kapllani (who seems like he’s bounced around in the lower flights of German football for several decades) notched a hat-trick in a superb match. Dynamo better get their act together or we’ll be hearing about riots in Dresden before long.
