Rostock loses after 3366 days
Dresden is back with a furore
Dynamo was out of the 2nd Bundesliga for a year, now the Saxons are back with a bang. Hansa Rostock, on the other hand, cannot cope with a KSC double strike shortly before the break after nine years of abstinence from the second division. For Darmstadt, the season after corona problems begins with worries.
Dynamo Dresden – FC Ingolstadt 3: 0 (1: 0)
Dynamo Dresden clearly won the promoted duel on matchday one in the 2nd Bundesliga. The Saxons prevailed against FC Ingolstadt 3-0 (1-0). In the 41st minute, Christoph Daferner (41st) took the lead for Dynamo and also scored the 2-0 (56th). Substitute Heinz Mörschel (67th) made the final score. Brandon Borrello (35th) hit the post of the FCI housing before the 1-0. However, the Schanzer from Ingolstadt by no means hid themselves and came up with a few opportunities in the first half. Dennis Eckert Ayensa (28th) and Filip Bilbija (30th) didn’t use the chances.
Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer (18th) previously had the first good chance for the hosts with his 18-meter shot, which goalkeeper Fabijan Buntic parried. The Ingolstadt team had to take full risk after the 0: 2 and were countered. Last season Dresden had won 4-0 against Ingolstadt. On Saturday, however, it was only Dynamo’s second win against Schanzer, with five draws and four defeats. FCI captain Stefan Kutschke, who was born in Dresden, played his 100th second division game.
Hansa Rostock – Karlsruher SC 1: 3 (0: 2)
Bad start for newcomer Hansa Rostock: The team of coach Jens Härtel lost in the first game of the club in the 2nd Bundesliga for 3366 days to Karlsruher SC with 1: 3 (0: 2). Christoph Kobald (42nd), Philipp Hofmann (44th) and Sebastian Jung (79th) scored the goals of the table sixth in the past second division season. John Verhoek (52nd) meanwhile shortened for the hosts.
Hansa started stormy after six wins in seven test matches in the Ostseestadion. The alleged opening goal by Verhoek (16.) was denied after studying the video images by referee Christof Günsch (Berlin). Newcomer Streli Mamba is said to have hindered KSC goalkeeper Marius Gersbeck in an offside position – a controversial decision.
As a result, the encounter flattened before the guests surprisingly took the lead shortly before the break. After a corner, the ball came to Kobald, who hit from close range. Then Thomas Meißner frivoled the ball against Lucas Cueto, who played for striker Hofmann. After the change, Rostock’s offensive efforts were quickly rewarded by Verhoek’s goal. But it wasn’t enough to win a point.
FC Heidenheim – SC Paderborn 0-0
