SV Darmstadt repelled Hamburger SV's direct attack and scored a point in the top game of the 2nd Bundesliga. The Hessians fought a 1:1 (0:1) at home at the Böllenfalltor.
After just four minutes, Darmstadt fell behind through a goal from Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer. In the event of a win, HSV would have moved up to one point behind the leaders and hosts in the table. Filip Stojilkovic scored the equalizer in the 81st minute. This leaves the Darmstadt four points ahead of the second-placed Hamburgers.
Paderborn also only plays a draw
Previously, SC Paderborn missed the leap to third place in the table and had to settle for a point-sharp after four wins in a row. The East Westphalians, who provide the best attack in the league, did not get more than 1: 1 (1: 0) at Holstein Kiel and remain in fourth place with 39 points behind 1. FC Heidenheim (40).
Maximilian Rohr (31st minute) gave the guests a 1-0 lead with his first second division goal, Fabian Reese equalized with a converted hand penalty (66th) to make it 1-1 for Kiel.
Wins for FCK and Fortuna
The pursuers 1. FC Kaiserslautern (38) and Fortuna Düsseldorf (35) celebrated three points and remain in wait. Scorer Terrence Boyd (22nd) with his eleventh goal of the season and Philipp Hercher (66th) and Kevin Kraus (69th) with a brace led the Palatinate to a 3-1 (1-0) win against SpVgg after two defeats in a row Greuther Fuerth.
The strong team from Düsseldorf defeated Eintracht Braunschweig 3-1 on Friday evening. "It wasn't our most stable performance, but we worked a lot," said Fortuna coach Daniel Thioune.
Hecking's successful coaching comeback
With Dieter Hecking returning to the trainer after 32 months, luck has returned to 1. FC Nürnberg. In a weak basement duel with bottom-placed SV Sandhausen, the Franconians won 1-0 (0-0) in the 86th minute with a penalty kick converted by Kwadwo Duah and inflicted the fifth defeat in a row on the guests, who were coached for the first time by new coach Tomas Oral to.
