League Two: The strongest HSV is now in third place – Sports

Hamburger SV is back in the middle of the promotion race in the second Bundesliga. The Hanseatic League beat its host Ingolstadt, who had already been relegated, 4-0 (2-0), and climbed to third place with 54 points. HSV’s first three goals came from headers. However, Darmstadt 98 could overtake the Erzgebirge Aue again on Saturday evening (8.30pm / Sky and Sport1).

Former Ingolstadt player Sonny Kittel (27) and captain Sebastian Schönlau (29th place) scored twice for Hamburg, who scored his third victory in a row, and paved the way for victory before the end of the first half. Robert Glatzel (57) thanks to Kittel’s pass increased the lead to 3-0 with his 19th goal of the season, and Mikel Kaufmann (81) scored the last point.

Newcomer Hansa Rostock managed to stay in the league early on. The team coached by Jens Hartl tied 0-0 (0-0) against SC Paderborn in the 32nd round, thus removing the last doubts on its own. Hansa now has 40 points, and Paderborn (48) is likely to finish a decent season in the upper midfield.

Big disappointment in Werder

On Friday evening, there was disappointment in Bremen, but great emotion in Schalke 04: a week after the 4-1 victory at Schalke 04, Werder fans were able to salvage their exhilaration after the 2-3 loss to Holstein Kiel. Werder coach Ole Werner said his team missed the win and the big step towards the Bundesliga after leading 2-0 from Niklas Volkrug and Marvin Deuts.

“We played with fire after going 2-0 up,” Bremen defender Marco Friedel said before the games. “Of course, if we play like this, we won’t go ahead. We have to be aware of that in the last two games.” At FC Erzberg Oe and against Jan Regensburg. “But we’re still looking forward,” said coach Werner. “We’ll work things out, we’ve found the right answers to backlashes in the past, and now we have to find an answer again.”

Schalke win in injury time

Hurricane-like cheers erupted at Sandhausen after Simon Tyrode’s stoppage-time winning goal. “It’s unbelievable what happened here,” the Schalke striker shouted into the microphone. “The fans pushed us to victory.” The 34-year-old didn’t know what to do with emotions. “I would have preferred to leave the field,” said Tyrodi, who scored both Schalke goals and regained the top spot with his team.

Coach Mike Buskins and sporting director Rauven Schroeder were inundated with cheers from nearly 10,000 Schalke fans. “It’s unbelievable what they’re conveying here,” said Schroeder. “It’s like ecstasy. The boys deserved it so ruthlessly that we scored exactly that goal of late. It’s going down like oil.” Büskens, who fought a lot with the club, couldn’t believe it. “I saw 25,000 fans with Schalke winning the UEFA Cup in Milan. But this was Milan’s second today,” the 54-year-old said. However, the ascent has not yet been achieved. “It was an important win for us. But we still have two tough games against FC St. Pauli and 1. FC Nuremberg,” Buskins confirmed.

In injury time FC St. Pauli lost a better place in the promotion race with a 1-1 draw with 1. FC Nuremberg. A week before the match against leaders Schalke 04, confidence in Millerntor was no longer particularly high. “We lost 1-1 today. Even as a big optimist, it’s hard for me to understand,” said coach Timo Schulz.
