3.Liga, Round 22 – restart

The restart of the 3.Liga was somewhat similar to the Bundesliga: the runaway leader continued happily, while the challengers got stopped, and some of the lower clubs showed that they want to turn things around.

Leaders heidenheim had no problems, as Marc Schnatterer nailed a hat-trick for the win. But RedBull Leipzig stubbed their toe sensationally at home and lost to tail-end Burghausen. Hansa Rostock was even worse as they got owned in Stuttgart, undoing some of the hard work they had done to climb into contention. A fierce battle in Osnabrück ended in a draw, which allowed Darmstadt to claim 3rd place.
Erfurt bit their teeth out against a stubborn Münster and were unable to move up. Wehen continues to fall (firing you coach doesn’t always work), as they got bitch-slapped at home by Halle.

However perhaps the most interesting was the Saarland-derby in Elversberg. Consodering that Saarbrücken is well-known and an ex-Bundesligist, and Elversberg is just some village, it’s not really a derby, but the excitement knew no bounds. So for the first time in club history, the home ground was totally sold out and packed to capacity. The fans weren’t disappointed, as SVE overran their more famous brethren in route to a historic win.

Total attendance 46,701 (avg 4,670), legendary sellout in Elversberg
