The wild ride of the serial offenders
Fortuna struggles to keep Fürth at bay
Fürth underpins its reputation as the best away team in the second division, but only brings one point from abroad despite the 2-0 lead. Düsseldorf, on the other hand, maintains its flawless home record. In the second game Osnabrück is expanding its home complex.
Fortuna Düsseldorf vs Greuther Fürth 3: 3 (1: 2)
Fortuna Düsseldorf saved a point in the spectacular top game of the 2nd Bundesliga against Greuther Fürth and thus also defended the promotion relegation place against the Franks. Thanks to Kevin Danso (83rd), the Rhinelander, who were still undefeated at home, secured 3: 3 (1: 2) in a wild game against the clover on matchday 17. Fürth remains the best away team.
Andre Hoffmann (26th / own goal), Julian Green (30th) and Sebastian Ernst (53rd) met for Fürth. Kenan Karaman (35th) and Kristoffer Peterson (49th) made up for the 2-0 deficit in the meantime, in the final phase Danso was then on the spot after a corner – in which Fortuna goalkeeper Florian Kastenmeier also caused confusion in the opposing penalty area.
After a cautious start, an interesting game developed after Hoffmann's own goal, in which Fürth immediately followed up. After a direct game Karaman brought Fortuna back on, after the equalization by substitute Peterson, Uwe Rösler's team seemed to be on the trigger – at least until Ernst brought the guests forward again after a great combination.
VfL Osnabrück vs Erzgebirge Aue 0: 1 (0: 1)
The black home series of VfL Osnabrück continues. The Lower Saxony lost to Erzgebirge Aue with 0: 1 (0: 1) and lost for the fifth time in a row at the Bremer Brücke. It was also the fifth defeat in the last six games. While the guests improved to seventh place in the table, Osnabrück is stuck in eleventh place in the lower midfield.
At the first half of the season, Aue was the dominant team from the start. The team of coach Dirk Schuster seemed more snappy and was rewarded after 13 minutes. A cross from Dimitrij Nazarov headed Strauss from a very short distance into the Osnabrück goal to lead 1-0.
The Schuster-Elf was more determined in the course of the game, but missed an earlier decision. They were also unlucky with a free kick from Jan Hochscheidt, whose shot landed on the post (56th).
VfL coach Grote tried to bring new momentum with new staff. Joker Luc Ihorst (89.) did not have more than a header chance. The striker also saw the red card in stoppage time (90th + 1).
