Relegation: Regensburg back in the 2nd league – victory at SV Wehen

Jahn Regensburg takes the last place in the 2. Bundesliga for the new season. SV Wehen is annoyed about two penalties not being given.

SSV Jahn Regensburg has returned to the 2nd Bundesliga, thanks in particular to Dominik Kother. The left winger scored the opening goal in the relegation second leg of the 2-1 (1-0) victory for coach Joe Enochs’ team at SV Wehen Wiesbaden (45th + 2 minutes). Konrad Faber also scored for the third-placed team in the third division, following a penalty shoot-out on the other side (47th minute), after Kother had helped the team along.

After the 2-2 draw in the first leg, the Hessians were unable to capitalize on their home advantage on Tuesday evening despite a late goal by striker Ivan Prtajin (82′) and have to return to the 3rd division after just one year.

Wiesbaden struggles with referee

However, Wiesbaden had problems with referee Martin Petersen: The Stuttgart referee did not award a penalty seconds after the restart of the second half when Franko Kovacic was knocked over by Oscar Schönfelder. Faber scored the 2-0 goal on the counterattack that followed. In the closing stages, the hosts also complained about a handball in the opponent’s penalty area.

In front of 11,000 spectators in the Brita Arena, Regensburg celebrated its direct return to the top. Left winger Kother kept Regensburg’s hopes alive last Friday with a goal and an assist. Jahn had already managed to move up a division twice before via the relegation round: in 2012, the Upper Palatinate team beat Karlsruher SC, and in 2017, they beat TSV 1860 Munich.

SVWW interim coach Döring back on the bench

Last year, Wehen secured promotion to the 2nd division in the relegation match against Arminia Bielefeld. After a strong first half of the season, SVWW ended up in a tailspin and parted ways with head coach Markus Kauczinski at the end of April.

Interim coach Nils Döring – the 44-year-old had to sit in the stands in the first leg due to a suspension – was able to coach his team from the bench again. After a quarter of an hour, he had to watch as Kother shot just wide of the goal.

Prtajin missed the first good chance for Wiesbaden, who have not won in eleven competitive matches, five minutes later. Otherwise, the Hessians hardly had any chances in the hectic match with some shortcomings in their play. After the 1:2, they chased the equalizer in vain.
