3.Liga, Round 20

Not many goals this round – 10 of the clubs failed to score at all, and only 14 total in the net. BUt there were some important results that helped the winners.

Heideneheim was held at Regensburg, and Münster did the same scoreless draw against Leipzig. A good point for the home sides in the tight relegation battle. Rostock helped themselves with a hard 1-0 over Elversberg, thereby defending their hold on 3rd. They needed it, since the clubs chasing them all got tough wins.

The biggest results did come in at the bottom. Stuttgarter Kickers dumped Wehen, who have faded into obscurity after a good start. This tightens things up at the bottom. Last place Burghausen did themselves a favor as well, getting a point at Duisburg. Wacker hasn’t yet lost contact with safety, and they could certainly use a win next week before going into the winterbreak. They’re not dead yet, but it’s getting tight.

The biggest loser was ex-Bundesligist Saarbrücken, who lost a critical home match to promoted Kiel. Holstein had been struggling, and FCS had been riding some good performances after the DFB Cup defeat to Dortmund. The visitors played well and deserved the win, clearly more prepared for the difficult relegation battle.
