As the new coach of second division soccer team SpVgg Greuther Fürth, Alexander Zorniger celebrated a perfect start against Bielefeld. Japan's Tatsuya Ito saved a lucky point for 1. FC Magdeburg in added time on Friday against 1. FC Heidenheim.
Against 1. FC Heidenheim, Magdeburg's Ito (90.3 minutes) used the first shot on the opposing goal to win a point. So the climber came to a happy draw with the 1: 1 (0: 1). Denis Thomalla (23rd) had previously given the guests the lead in front of 19,352 spectators in the MDCC Arena. The Ostalbstädter ranked fourth, the Elbestadt in 15th place.
After the 3:2 at Hamburger SV, FCM coach Christian Titz made no changes. Magdeburg had more than 70 percent possession of the ball, but the ripped-off guests were not impressed. The free-standing Thomalla used the fourth chance to counterattack deliberately to take the lead.
