2.Liga, Round 10

Good away win for Köln, overcoming adversity. Helmes and Risse each shot penlaties against the bar and post, which could have set Köln on the way to an easy win at Karlsruhe. Instead they fell behind, but to their credit, they attacked furiously and were rewarded at the death with Brecko’s winner. Overall, an impressive performance as Köln looks more and more growing into their role as a promotion favorite. KSC put in a good effort, but was clearly the inferior side.

An easy win for Union, as they controlled Sandhausen and banged in a few goals to get the points.

Solid performance by Kaiserslautern, driven by Idrissou. FCK outplayed Bielefeld, who never really got into the match.

St.Pauli laid an egg as they got mugged at home by Paderborn. The Paulistas were hoping to vault into the middle of the promotion race, but this setback hurts. Paderborn needed the points, as they are struggling in the bottom zone.

Dresden got a key home win against Aalen, although it was a bit of a struggle. Despite having the upper hand, Dynamo was in trouble for much of the 2nd half, as Aalen proved to be a tough nut. However a combination of luck and determination allowed them to hold onto the valuable points.

FSV Frankfurt had a relatively easy time against Aue and continue to do well. One has to wonder if they would draw better if they had a bigger stadium, but I doubt it, since they can’t even fill up the one they have. Still, it does seem odd that a city the size of Frankfurt has no room for a second club.

Speaking of second clubs, 1860 kinda sucked again and got nothing against Cottbus. Visiting Energie had no energy, basically having one chance in the whole match. Their GK was sharp however, so when 1860 finally started trying to win in the 2nd half, they were able to ride it out and get a point.

Bochum is in crisis, losing at home to Ingolstadt, who are showing signs of life. The Blues have lost 3 in a row, and coach Peter Neururer may start feeling the heat, despite coming in as a saviour not too long ago. Meanwhile the “Schanzer” have done well in the last couple outings and no longer look totally hopeless. They’re still dead last, but within striking distance.

Monday Night had crisis-torn Düsseldorf hosting contender Greuther Fürth. Fortuna needed a result badly, but the favored guests from the south were controlling the match and looked to be well on the way to victory. But in the 2nd period, Düsseldorf came out flying and turned things around with a double from Dutch forward Charlison Benschop.
