Pyros, smoke and few goals
Paderborn is storming inexorably towards the Bundesliga

In the Lower Saxony derby between Hannover 96 and Eintracht Braunschweig there is an early interruption and late two goals and no winner. The KSC strives for a draw against Heidenheim. Only SC Paderborn wins, sovereign. The Westphalians are storming towards the Bundesliga.

Hannover 96 – Eintracht Braunschweig 1: 1 (0: 0)

The winning streak of second division soccer team Hannover 96 has broken. After four wins in a row in the Lower Saxony derby against Eintracht Braunschweig, the team coached by Stefan Leitl had to settle for a 1-1 (0-0) win, but is still part of the extended top group. Braunschweig improved at least temporarily to relegation place 16 by winning the point.

Anthony Ujah (69th) gave the guests the lead, Havard Nielsen (78th) saved Hannover from their third defeat of the season. The guests did not hide. Immanuel Pherai (14th) provided the outsider with the first goal approach. Hannover found it difficult against the well-organized Braunschweig team, and numerous interruptions also disrupted the flow of the game.

Nicolo Tresoldi (22nd) also narrowly missed. Nevertheless, the hosts almost went into the break with a lead. Eintracht goalkeeper Jasmin Fejzic deflected a Nielsen header just over the crossbar (45+3).

Braunschweig remained courageous even after the change. Fabio Kaufmann failed from an acute angle but at 96 goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler (51). Hanover lacked accuracy and creativity. Nielsen also found his master again in Fejzic (64th). Ujah then shocked the hosts, Nielsen was unlucky with a header to the aluminum (71st). The ex-Brunswick did it seven minutes later

SC Paderborn – Jahn Regensburg 3: 0 (1: 0)

SC Paderborn has regained the top of the table. The Ostwestfalen came against Jahn Regensburg to a 3:0 (1:0) and were able to push Hamburger SV back from first place. HSV initially took the lead in the standings on Friday with a 3-2 win at Holstein Kiel.

Marcel Hoffmeier (21st) gave the SCP the lead on preparatory work by Julian Justvan. Robert Leipertz (69th) made it 2-0 with a margin shot, Marvin Pieringer (86th) made the final score. In the 68th minute, Regensburg’s Steve Breitkreuz saw the red card after an emergency brake according to video evidence.

Paderborn has 19 points and ranks one point ahead of Hamburg. In the fifth home game of the season, it was the fifth win for Paderborn. Regensburg, on the other hand, has been without a three for six games. The hosts, who have been unbeaten in six games and celebrated five wins in the process, had to make a change in personnel at short notice. Goalkeeper Jannik Huth was injured while warming up and was replaced by Leopold Zingerle.

Paderborn started rather cautiously, but after the opening goal the hosts increased the pressure and created further chances. Florent Muslija (30′) forced Regensburg goalkeeper Dejan Stojanovic to make a brilliant save with an 18-metre free-kick. A minute later, Muslija hit the crossbar of the Oberpfälzer goal again. In injury time in the first half, SCP midfielder Leipertz (45+2) failed with a lob on the well-reacting Stojanovic.

Karlsruher SC – 1. FC Heidenheim 0-0 (0-0)

1. FC Heidenheim keeps in touch with the top teams. FCH drew 0-0 at Karlsruher SC in the Baden-Württemberg duel. Heidenheim is in third place with 15 points, while Baden are in midfield with eleven points.

The FCH is unbeaten in six games, but has only drawn three times in the last four games. Both teams acted in a very disciplined manner, were well staggered and thus largely neutralized each other. Scoring chances were scarce. It wasn’t until the 38th minute before Karlsruhe captain Jerome Gondorf came to the penalty spot with a direct acceptance of assists from Marvin Wanitzek. However, he didn’t hit the ball properly.

In the second half, Heidenheim repeatedly put pinpricks on the offensive, but the guests lacked the necessary fortune in the end. Tim Kleindienst did score (62′), but the team of referees decided it was offside.
