2.Liga, Round 7: Midweek results

Midweek action in the 2.Liga saw a few minor surprises, although the biggest is that none of the favorites have really established any authority in the league. Bochum probably comes closest, but they’re dropped points left and right and haven’t established any control. Kaiserslautern has eeked out results, but hardly impressed. The others, such as Fürth and Braunschweig have been disappointing, and St.Pauli and Nürnberg have stunk.

Thig match was a traditional derby between Bochum and Düsseldorf. The winner could have taken the lead, so it’s only fitting it ended square. The hosts started off stronger, but Fortuna got back in the 2nd half. Both sides had decent chances to win, but the draw is a fair result.

The new leader is quite stunning: Darmdtadt! The Lilies had a crunching win in a Hessenderby with FSV Frankfurt, as they spanked the bornheimer silly. The vistors actually started brightly, but it only last a quarter of an hour. Then the 98ers grabbed a lead and dominated from then on. Basically they kicked their guests all over the place

The Rasenballsportler had one of their better matches of the season as they eventually overran Karlsruhe. Despite falling behind, Leipzig kept up the pressure and KSC cracked.

Kaiserslautern had to struggle, but held the win against Union. FCK was dominant early and looked ready to sail home with a win, but Union made it tough in the 2nd period as the hosts were losing control of the match.

Greuther Fürth was lazy against Aalen, and even though a man up, were unable to win.

Ingolstadt dominated against Aue, but wasted all their chances. They should have won easily, but couldn’t hit the side of a barn. Erzgebirge has shown recent improvement, but this one also due to luck.

A crap match in Hamburg, but St.Pauli will take the win over Braunschweig. Neither side seemed to know what they were doing, which is perplexing considering both were pre-season favorites to contend. Instead they’ve sucked, but at least the home side is happy to get out of the drop zone.

Nürnberg was horrible in Heidenheim, and deservedly got their ass kicked. Der Club better fire somebody, because they really stink and could be a relegation candidate. Heidenheim jumped on their guests right at the start and was firmly in the saddle for a somewhat historic win.

Sandhausen outplayed 1860 in a surprisingly decent match. They wanted it more and were rewarded in injury time.
