Direct promotion screwed up?: Kaiserslautern’s momentous BVB dropout

Screwed up direct advancement?
Kaiserslautern’s momentous BVB dropout

While Braunschweig has won five out of six games in the 3rd division since March, FC Kaiserslautern is showing nerves on the home stretch of the promotion battle. In front of almost 50,000 fans, the Red Devils, who were currently second in the table, went down against the reserves of Borussia Dortmund. Now everything is in danger.

Severe setback for 1. FC Kaiserslautern in the battle for promotion to the 3rd soccer league: On the 36th matchday, the Red Devils lost 1:3 (0:1) to Borussia Dortmund II. The defeat could have been even worse. Bradley Fink (32′) gave the Black and Yellows the lead, Justin Njinmah (59′) and Immanuel Pherai (81′) made it 3-0 for BVB II. Felix Götze (90’+2) scored the consolation goal for them Palatinate.

With 63 points, FCK slipped to third place in the table behind champions and second division promoted team 1. FC Magdeburg (72 points) and Eintracht Braunschweig (64). On Friday, FCM lost the top game at Eintracht 1:2 (0:0).

Before the game in Cologne “we have to collect ourselves first and check off the defeat and the wasted second place in the table,” said FCK trainer Marco Antwerpen at MagentaSport: “It will now take a few days and it won’t be easy. ” The game in Cologne is the last of the season for FCK. Lautern should have met Türkgücü Munich on the last day of the game. The Munich club had withdrawn from play during the season for economic reasons, and all of Türkgücü’s games were removed from the rankings. So FCK is doomed to watch in the season finale.

1860 creeps up on FCK

The Würzburger Kickers have also been confirmed as another relegated from the 3rd division since Friday evening. After Viktoria Berlin’s victory against 1. FC Saarbrücken (2-1) on Friday evening, they can no longer stay up in the league, even with three wins. At SV Meppen, the Kickers scored three points on Saturday with a 4:2 (1:2) – but the victory came too late.

TSV Havelse had previously been relegated. 1860 Munich beat Havelse 3-0 (0-0) on Saturday, five points behind Lautern – but with one game less. SC Freiburg II defeated VfL Osnabrück 4-1 (1-1), which meant the Lower Saxony lost their last vague chances of promotion. SC Verl won 3-0 (2-0) against SV Wehen Wiesbaden. Hallesche FC and Viktoria Köln separated 1:1 (1:1).
