2.Liga, Round 32: Disadavantage Fürth

Well, last week it looked like Greuther Fürth had taken the huge step in returning to the Bundesliga. This week they turn around a wail away like a limp noodle and are in trouble…They basically sucked in the Bavarian derby with 1860, and got punished in injury time. Paderborn took full advantage to vault over them. SCP overcame stiff resistance from Sandhausen to get the win. SVS was bunkered down to fend off the host attacks, but when captain Kulovits was ousted on a double yellow, it took only a few minutes for the damn to spring a leak. After that, there was no way back, and indeed Paderborn continued to press for the finisher.

Kaiserslautern missed this golden chance to get back in things, but they were held to a draw in a hard fought battle at Union Berlin. Union has already announced that coach Uwe Neuhaus is finished, but that didn’t seem to effect the team, as they came out strong.

St.Pauli ended their tiny promotion hopes with a stinker at home to Aalen. They had no idea what they were doing, so Aalen kicked their ass.

Dresden is still in hot water because they can’t win. They were always on the back foot against Karlsruhe, and once again settle for a draw. A league leading 17th! But problem is, it’s a 3-1-0 world, not the old 2-1-0. In the old world, they’d actually be tied with Bochum and FSV Frankfurt. But today, they’d better look back as well, since Bielefeld is making a last gasp effort for the playoff spot. Karlsruhe continues a decent return to the 2.Liga, and even has a mathematical chance for promotion.

Arminia was all over a horrible Bochum side and got an impressive win on the road. The visitors jumped all over Bochum from the start and kicked them mercilessly. This was clearly one of their better performances all season – or perhaps it was equally one of Bochum’s worst. But it keeps hope alive that they can still catch Dresden and then save themselves in the playoff against (most likely) Darmstadt.

FSV Frankfurt officially sent Cottbus down, and helped themselves, placing one leg in the safety zone. FSV continues to hang on in the 2.Liga, which is pretty impressive considering they’re pretty much ignored in Frankfurt, have a tiny budget and basically have to rebuild every season.

Ingolstadt might have had a famous win against Köln, as they were the better side, but wasted chances. Köln acted like a champion and struck when they saw the opportunity to salvage a point when they were still hung over from the promotion celebrations last week. For the Schanzer, perhaps a consolation that they are assured from relegation worries.
