SC Paderborn, VfL Osnabrück and Eintracht Braunschweig celebrated important victories at home in the 2nd Bundesliga.
Ostwestfalen led Jahn Regensburg 3: 1 (1: 1) in front of the empty stands at the Benteler Arena, the first loss of the season and jumped to seventh in the table.
Eintracht Braunschweig only managed a 3-2 (1: 2) win against 1. FC Nürnberg on Matchday 6 with a controversial injury-time penalty and scored important points against relegation. The “club”, however, is still stuck in the basement of the table. Osnabrück beat SV Sandhausen 2-1 (2-0). Holstein Kiel could not overcome a 1-1 (1-1) at FC Erzgebirge Aue, but had to play with few numbers for a long time and initially defended second place in the table behind Hamburger SV, who are now five points ahead of Kiel.
The Paderborns continued their October uptrend. Two-time striker Uwe Hünemeier (20./79.) And substitute Marco Terrazzino (62.) ensured coach Steffen Baumgart’s team the deserved second victory of the season. Andreas Albers (23) meanwhile had achieved the 1: 1 equalization for Jahn, who failed to establish himself at the top. However, the previously undefeated Upper Palatinate suffered two unlucky injuries. Shortly before kick-off, captain Benedikt Gimber had to pass. And then goalkeeper Alexander Meyer got injured, so backup goalkeeper Kevin Kunz made his second division debut after just under half an hour. However, Ostwestfalen could only use their superiority for more shots in the second half of the game.
Nick Proschwitz was the winner of the match in Braunschweig in the duel between the former Bundesliga clubs. In front of 2,788 spectators, he used a controversial penalty in the third minute of injury time to score the winning goal against the “club”. Before that, Danilo Wiebe (21st) and Martin Kobylanski (52nd) met for Eintracht. Pascal Köpke scored both goals in Nuremberg (31./42.).
The other two games were much less dramatic. In a 1-1 draw at Aue, the Kielers had to play the under-numbered Phil Neumann (15th) for a long time after the red and still saved a point. Janni Serra (9th) was able to offset Auer’s initial lead by Florian Krüger (2nd). In Osnabrück, Timo Beermann (42nd) and Bashkim Ajdini (45th) scored the goals for VfL, Kevin Behrens could only cut short for the guests of Sandhausen (61st).
