3.Liga, Round 6: Midweek action bad for the top

This midweek round proved to be fairly tough for the erstwhile leaders, as they had poor results. It seems to indicate that the 3.Liga is going to be fairly compact, and should be wide open for the promotion slots.

Stuttgarter Kickers are the surprise new leaders as they overpowered Chemnitz. The Kickers are usually struggling, but they’ve started well this season.

Wehen held 2nd but went down in Cottbus, as they were totally dominated by Energie. Cottbus seems like they have what it takes to contend, and are indeed one of the pre-season favorites.

Unterhaching was shocked at home by Halle, getting biatch-slapped silly. Halle has proven to be a nasty guest, as they had previously creamed Bielefeld 5-1 away. (Of course they suck at home, so are currently in no man’s land).

Dynamo Dresden continues to slink as they were stunned late by Kiel, despite another big home crowd. They’ve got the largest support in eastern Germany, although RedBull money seems to helping Leipzig, as the fans are starved for a winner.

It’s back to crisis mode on the Ostsee as Hansa stunk and lost against newcomer Großaspach. Not sure what to make of this, but dropping down to the Regionalliga would be a real disaster. For a long time Hansa was the flagship of ex-GDR football, but they have certainly been struggling the last few years.
