2nd league: HSV climbs to the top of the table and exacerbates Hertha's crisis

With a deserved win in the top game against Hertha BSC, Hamburger SV has at least for a day at the top of the table in the 2nd Bundesliga.

The Hanseatic League clearly won their home game against the Bundesliga relegated team 3-0 (2-0) and moved up to first place with seven points. At the same time, HSV exacerbated the crisis at Hertha, who still have no points after three games and are at the bottom of the table for the time being.

In the one-sided first half, Bakery Jatta (38th) gave the hosts the lead against the weak Berliners in front of 57,000 spectators in the sold-out Volksparkstadion. In injury time before the break, Laszlo Benes increased with a converted hand penalty. In the second half, Robert Glatzel (82nd) ​​made the final score with the third goal.

Paderborn and Hannover with away wins

Meanwhile, Hannover 96 managed to break free after a disappointing start to the season. On Saturday, the team of coach Stefan Leitl, who was criticized, won 2-1 (1-0) at Hansa Rostock, who had started the season with two wins. Phil Neumann (22nd minute) and Cedric Teuchert (87th penalty) ensured Hannover's first win of the season. An own goal by Neumann (58th) had led to the equalizer in between.

SC Paderborn also achieved their first win of the season in a 2-1 (1-0) win at Fortuna Düsseldorf. There was a disappointing zero number between Greuther Fürth and FC St. Pauli. Instead of the expected offensive spectacle in the traditional second division duel, the two highly traded teams largely neutralized each other. SC Paderborn also achieved their first win of the season in a 2-1 (1-0) win at Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Paderborn without injured Kruse

96 had previously drawn twice and failed in the DFB Cup at second division relegated SV Sandhausen - not enough for the ambitious 96 lead around Martin Kind. Hannover initially had everything under control against Rostock, but also benefited from a serious positional mistake by Hansa goalkeeper Markus Kolke when Neumann took the lead, which is well worth seeing.

Even without the injured prominent new signing Max Kruse, Paderborn initially showed a strong performance at Fortuna, who found no means against the strong defense of the guests in the first half. Florent Muslija (5th) provided Düsseldorf's first goal of the season early on.

Only after the change did the ambitious Fortuna increase the pressure and only played on the guest goal. Coach Daniel Thioune's team was only briefly rewarded with the equalizer after a header from Jordy de Wijs (57'). Paderborn's Sirlord Conteh (59th) completed a counterattack for the now happy Paderborn lead, which lasted until the end.
