4/10/2022 3:33 p.m
Hamburger SV simply can’t get through against extremely efficient and defensive Kielers and screwed up the chance to move up to the top of the 2nd Bundesliga again. At first the game has to be interrupted. Sandhausen collects important points against Dresden in the relegation battle.
Holstein Kiel – Hamburger SV 1:0 (1:0)
Hamburger SV can almost write off the Bundesliga return they are aiming for for the fourth time. The Hanseatic League lost the second division northern derby at Holstein Kiel 0-1 (0-1). The gap between sixth place and relegation place three is seven points.
Kwasi Wriedt scored the goal of the day in the 13th minute for the hosts, who are still unbeaten against HSV in the second division. The goalscorer completed a solo effort ice-cold, preceded by a loss of the ball by Bakery Jatta.
In front of 15,034 spectators in the sold-out Holstein Stadium, the guests didn’t let themselves be put off by the early deficit, but they couldn’t get through against the defensively oriented Storks. Holstein goalkeeper Thomas Dähne quickly destroyed HSV’s first big chance against Robert Glatzel in the 54th minute. Even in the period that followed, Hamburg was unable to convert their clear field advantages into goals.
After HSV fans ignited Pyro, the game was interrupted for ten minutes shortly after the start of the game. Because of the smoke, referee Daniel Schlager temporarily sent both teams into the cabins. Meanwhile, HSV coach Tim Walter and sports director Jonas Boldt managed to have a calming effect on the HSV attachment.
SC Paderborn 07 – Karlsruher SC 2: 2 (1: 1)
Karlsruher SC is only getting closer to the “magical” 40-point mark in small steps. Despite being outnumbered in the midfield duel at SC Paderborn, the Baden team couldn’t get more than 2:2 (1:1) and thus have 39 points on their account.
Kai Pröger (30th) gave Paderborn the lead, Marvin Wanitzek (36th) equalized with his ninth goal of the season. Then the home team lost defensive chief Uwe Hünemeier (47th) after a foul play on Benjamin Goller, Philipp Hofmann (69th) used the majority against his former club to score his 50th goal in the 100th competitive game for Baden. Maximilian Thalhammer (84th) equalized for Paderborn. 9652 spectators in the Benteler Arena saw a lively game. Hofmann (4th) had a good chance early on, both teams quickly looked for a way down. Pröger initially narrowly missed the 1-0 lead (12′).
After another good opportunity for KSC through Marc Lorenz (20th), Pröger kept his cool in a counterattack against four Karlsruhers and scored. The 1-1 came after a misunderstanding between SC goalkeeper Jannik Huth and Hünemeier. When Hofmann scored, video evidence had to be produced and made it clear: the ball was behind the line. Thalhammer successfully completed a nice outnumbered attack.
SV Sandhausen – Dynamo Dresden 2: 1 (1: 0)
SV Sandhausen has taken a huge step towards staying up. Coach Alois Schwartz’s team beat Dynamo Dresden 2-1 (1-0) in front of 6012 fans. With the eighth win of the season, Sandhausen increased the lead over Dresden, who are relegated, to six points.
Dario Dumic scored the opening goal for SVS (7th). The preliminary work came from Dennis Diekmeier, who had given the fans good news before kick-off: In a video message, the captain announced the extension of his contract by two more years. Erik Zenga (48′) made it 2-0 before Dresden scored a goal through Tim Knipping (65′). In the final phase, Dynamo pushed in vain for an equalizer.
A hard-fought game developed in the Hardtwald stadium from the start, in which both teams fought doggedly for every ball and meter. Symbolic of this was the formation of a pack shortly before the half-time whistle, when numerous players attacked each other. In added time, the hosts missed the early decision to make it 3-1 twice.
