Slapstick goal shocks “Club”
Hansa Rostock cannot stop the fall
04/15/2023, 3:08 p.m
On the 28th matchday of the 2nd Bundesliga, SV Sandhausen managed a surprise: With the first win after nine games without a win, the bottom of the table reported back in the relegation battle. Hansa Rostock, on the other hand, loses the seventh of the last eight games.
SC Paderborn – Hansa Rostock 3:0 (0:0)
Hansa Rostock suffered the next setback in the relegation battle of the 2nd Bundesliga and also lost at SC Paderborn. Coach Alois Schwartz’s team lost to the SCP 0:3 (0:0). Five days after the Rostock team parted ways with sports director Martin Pieckenhagen, they suffered their fourth defeat in a row. FC Hansa has not won since February 10th. The team started the second half of the season from ninth place in the table. Now the Rostock table is penultimate.
Paderborn is fifth. Coach Lukas Kwasniok’s team is probably too big to get involved in the promotion race. Maximilian Rohr (48th minute), Florent Muslija (78th) and Felix Platte (87th) scored the goals for the hosts. Paderborn also benefited from the fact that Rostock’s Lukas Scherff saw the red card after an emergency brake in the first round (27th).
1. FC Magdeburg – SV Sandhausen 1: 2 (0: 1)
The renewed change of coach at SV Sandhausen has had an effect. The bottom of the table, managed by interim coaches Gerhard Kleppinger and Oscar Corrochano, won 2-1 (1-0) at 1. FC Magdeburg after nine games without a win. Dario Dumic gave the guests the lead in front of 23,156 spectators in the MDCC Arena (25th minute) and then increased it to 2-0 (66th). Cristiano Piccini (89th) only managed to get the goal back for FCM.
Sandhausen, who parted ways last Monday with coach Thomas Oral and then with sporting director Mikayil Kabaca, got off to a weak start in terms of play. But the efficiency was right: Dumic used a corner kick to take the lead. This came practically out of nowhere, because Magdeburg had taken control of the game. However, Baris Atik (13th) failed before from a promising position. FCM could have equalized before the half-time whistle: Atik rounded three opponents and staged Herbert Bockhorn – whose cross Leon Bell Bell (45.+1) shot just wide of the goal.
After the change, FCM coach Christian Titz increased his offensive efforts, brought in Tatsuya Ito and, for the first time after the death of his father, Kai Brünker, but too many chances remained unused. The guests concentrated entirely on the defensive. The calculation worked: After a free kick in midfield, Alexander Esswein crossed to the second post, where Dumic (66th) pushed the ball in to make it 2-0. Piccini’s goal (89′) came too late for Magdeburg.
Holstein Kiel – 1. FC Nuremberg 2: 1 (2: 0)
1. FC Nürnberg is still stuck in the relegation battle with Dieter Hecking as coach. The table-13. lost 2-1 (0-2) at Holstein Kiel and has only won two out of seven second division games under his sporting director and interim coach Hecking, the third coach this season.
The first goal conceded in front of 12,938 spectators was particularly bitter from Nuremberg’s point of view: FCN goalkeeper Peter Vindahl shot Kiel’s Lewis Holtby in the 19th minute. From there the ball rebounded to Holstein striker Steven Skrzybski. Florian Flick then deflected his harmless shot over his own goal line. When it was 2-0 in the 39th minute, Fabian Reese put the ball in front of himself and shot from the turn, which is well worth seeing.
Somewhat surprisingly, the “Club” came back through a goal by substitute Felix Lohkemper (65th). Shortly before, Kiel had missed two good opportunities to score a third goal. Nevertheless, the hosts controlled what happened in the second half, also because Nuremberg’s Jens Castrop saw the red card in the 74th minute. FCN’s offensive game was too harmless.
