2.Liga, Round 34: FINAL

Paderborn completed the dream season and gain promotion to the Bundesliga, and at the bottom, Bielefeld stunned Dresden and make the relegation playoff, sending Dynamo down.

Paderborn started out nervous and soon was behind against Aalen, who had nothing to play for. The homeside quickly established control and the lead, but Aalen remained pesky throughout the match. SCP however managed to carry it through to victory, thereby gaining an incredible promotion to the Bundesliga.

Greuther Fürth was hoping for a Paderborn slip up, but had theirn hands full with Sandhausen. The Greuther eventually did their job, the victory at least assuring that they get the playoff against Hamburg for a chance to go up.

Düsseldorf overpowered Kaiserslautern in the 2nd half, ending the devils hope of sneaking into 3rd.

A wild match in Dresden, winner fights another day. Bielefeld was quite surprising, pressing back host Dynamo, and generally having the upper hand. Stefan Klos gave them a lead before half-time, and then doubled things after an hour. At that point, the Dresden crowd was furious, and bombarded the field with rockets and fire/pyrotechnics. The match was interrupted for 15 minutes as order was restored. When the match restarted, Dynamo was fast out of the gates and quickly equalized the match. But Arminia was up to the task, and immediately regained the lead. The remaining 20 minutes should have been a desperate Dynamo assault, but instead Arminia easily turned away any attacks, and in fact could have finished off the match themselves. But they achieved their goal by winning, the bitter defeat sending Dresden down. Bielefeld will face off with Darmstadt for the 2.Liga spot

Champions Köln took the day off and was beaten by FSV Frankfurt, in a rare sellout for the Bornheimers.

One thought on “2.Liga, Round 34: FINAL

  1. long time without eastern teams in bundesliga and now it seems like they’re also saying goodbye to 2.Liga… (thought I dislike RB moneybags hopefuly they are smart enough to change their logo and give Leipzig that spot)
