2nd League: FCK continues to tremble – Rostock faces relegation

While Hertha is all about the coaching question, FCK needs points in the relegation battle. Nuremberg, on the other hand, has already been saved.

Hertha BSC gave Pal Dardai a win in what was probably his last home game as Berlin head coach and caused further tremors in the relegation battle at 1. FC Kaiserslautern. The Hungarian team, whose contract will not be extended according to consistent media reports, won 3-1 (2-1) against the Palatinate team in front of 67,144 spectators in the Berlin Olympic Stadium.

The Lauterers, who return to the Olympic Stadium in two weeks for the cup final against champions Leverkusen, will definitely avoid direct relegation from the 2nd Bundesliga because Rostock did not win at Schalke. The FCK can still slip into the relegation place.

If Wiesbaden loses at Eintracht Braunschweig on Sunday, the Palatinate team will be assured of relegation before the last matchday. Next weekend, the team of veteran Friedhelm Funkel, who took over the team in February, will host Braunschweig am Betzenberg.

Goal scorer Haris Tabakovic with a penalty kick (19th minute), Jeremy Dudziak (45th + 3) and Fabian Reese (67th) scored for the hosts in Berlin. Marlon Ritter had meanwhile equalized with a direct free kick (39th).

Rostock: Relegation possible on Sunday

FC Hansa Rostock lost at FC Schalke 04 and can be relegated from the 2nd Bundesliga this Sunday. Coach Mersad Selimbegović’s team lost 1:2 (1:2) to Gelsenkirchen. For Rostock it was the fifth defeat in a row. The team from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania remains second to last in the table with 31 points. If Wehen Wiesbaden wins at Eintracht Braunschweig, Hansa can no longer reach the relegation place.

Kenan Karaman (22nd minute) and Paul Seguin (45th+5) scored the goals for Schalke. Sarpreet Singh scored Rostock’s only goal (32′). The Hansa goalscorer saw a red card in the second half after a hard foul on Schalke’s top talent Assan Ouédraogo (70th).

Nuremberg frees itself from worries

1. FC Nürnberg saved themselves from trembling until the end and dispelled any remaining doubts about staying in the league. In the first game after the separation from sports director Dieter Hecking, the passionate Franconians powerfully ended their series of five defeats in a row with a 3-0 (1-0) win against newly promoted SV Elversberg on the penultimate matchday. With now 40 points, the “club” can no longer be relegated and can start the final business trip to Hamburger SV next Sunday without pressure.

Coach Cristian Fiel’s players compensated the 34,031 spectators in the last home game of the season a little for the sobering season in the second half of the season. Felix Lohkemper (43rd minute), captain Jan Gyamerah (52nd/hand penalty) and Can Uzun (64th) scored the goals.
