2nd League: Kiel's soaring brakes - Elversberg strong again

Holstein Kiel missed the potential jump to second place in the 2nd Bundesliga. In the duel with 1. FC Nürnberg, coach Marcel Rapp's team suffered a 0-2 (0-0) defeat in front of their home crowd.

Tim Handwerker (68th) and Can Yilmaz Uzun (77th) ensured the well-deserved victory for the courageous guests. This increased the gap between fourth-placed Kiel and leaders St. Pauli to four points.

SV Elversberg continues to play a surprisingly good role. The 2:1 (2:0) in Magdeburg helped the promoted team to seventh place. The goals from Jannik Rochelt (12th) and Maurice Neubauer (35th) paved the way to victory before halftime. However, success was once again in danger after Connor Krempicki's goal (70').

In the third Sunday game, SV Wehen Wiesbaden managed a 1-0 (0-0) win over Hansa Rostock. Thanks to Ivan Prtajin's late goal (89th), the hosts moved away from their opponents who were previously tied on points and improved to eleventh place.

FC St. Pauli (23 points) remains the leader of the lower house of football after the hard-fought 2:1 (0:1) against Karlsruhe on Saturday. The Kiezkickers moved two points ahead of their local rivals Hamburger SV (21), who had previously had the same number of points, but a few hours later in Kaiserslautern they couldn't go beyond 3:3 (1:2). The new second place is Fortuna Düsseldorf (21) due to the better goal difference compared to HSV.
