Greuther Fürth is going up, and St.Pauli may have missed the boat. Ironically, it was veteran Gerald Asamoah, with St.Pauli last year, who stabbed the Paulistas in the heart.

Let the riots begin. (Well, I suppose they’ve been ongoing in Rostock). With Hansa showing some signs of life, Rostock and their fans certainly could expect a good effort and high probability of a win against fellow relegation struggler FSV Frankfurt. BZZZZT! Biatch-slap!!! Hansa ran around aimlessly like chickens with their heads cut off, but FSV was determined and ruthless. The Bornheimers must have felt like shooting fish in a barrel, as they romped home to a famous victory.

Seeing what their little cousins did to Rostock, Eintracht was in the mood to do the same to another eastern team. Erzgebirge Aue tried, but was inferior across the board, so it was only a question of when and how much. Alex Meier, probably the top player in the 2.Liga, opened up the scoring under a half hour, and it was one way football for the whole match. Easy win for Eintracht, probably sealing their immediate return to the Bundesliga. Aue might as well just forget this one and concentrate on avoiding relegation.

Aachen could have won in Duisburg, but they didn’t take their chances. The Zebras did, and took a big step towards eliminating their relegation worries.

Bochum needed a win, but once again was feeble. On the plus side, they finally scored a goal, but they were outplayed by 1860 for most of the match, and were on the way to another deserved loss. However deep into injury time Kevin Vogt scored the equalizer and gained what might be a precious point.

Ingolstadt remains unbeaten since the winterbreak, and the win over Karlsruhe basically ensures the Schanzer stay up. Somewhat umlucky match for KSC, as they fell behind early, but worked very hard to get back into the match. They chased the lead for a hour and then got the equalizer, but near the end they conceded the bitter goal that leaves them in the relegation zone. They might still have a chance against Cottbus and Aue, since those clubs are sinking like a stone, but most likely their only hope is to defend the relegation playoff spot against Rostock and Aachen.
