Dynamo again benefits from red card: duplicity of events. As in the 3:1 against Arminia Bielefeld, Dynamo Dresden also benefited from a red card in the 2:0 home victory over FC Ingolstadt and eventually used the numerical superiority to win. It was the fourth win in the fifth game, underpinning the top spot in the table. But the scene that led to the dismissal of Lukas Fröde ignited discussions after the end of the game. "A huge injustice happened to us today," said the center back, criticizing Stefan Kutschke for not reporting the wrong decision to referee Oldhafer: "I think there would have been the opportunity. There is an extreme amount of pressure and of course you want to win the game. Then often any advantage is fine. In such a moment, you lack foresight," said Fröde at "MagentaSport".
Kutschke, before his return to Dynamo active in Ingolstadt, countered: "That was now no red card, at least I have not felt this Nachtreten so, quite honestly. But I should reward a player for insulting me for a minute. I do not see that."
The coaches also disagreed. "A clear wrong decision, if you look at the pictures, but also in the game. In the whole stadium, only one person saw it that way. That's actually a penalty for us - Kutschke pulls down our captain. Suddenly the assistant, who was very far away, raises the flag. And suddenly there is the red card. Unfortunately, we were not able to reward ourselves for our strong fighting performance. The red card already ensured that we lose the game here," said Ingolstadt coach Michael Köllner. Dynamo boss Markus Anfang didn't even notice the sending-off. "The decisive factor for me was that we didn't take our chances in the first half. If we had made the, we would have been on the winning side anyway."
Bear, of all people, kills the lions: Marcel Bear had waited a long time for this moment. With his first competitive match goal for FC Erzgebirge Aue and the subsequent submission to 2:1 by Maximilian Thiel, the former Munich player was the matchwinner against TSV 1860. "I had in the halftime break still quibbled with me. It can't be that I work so hard and put in so much effort and it just doesn't want to work out," Bär said of the missed opportunities before the break. But he said he had "mega teammates" who cheered him up and predicted the goal. At some point, the knot just bursts," said the attacker.
Coach Pavel Dotchev has managed in a short time to form a team that believes in itself until the final whistle and decides games late." The result is important for me, but the manner is much, much more important. If you are fit, then you have mental strength, then you are mentally stable. What's crucial for me is clearly our style of play. A lot of teams have to work brutally against us on the ball. And we have to remain patient. We have to soften up the opponent, so to speak, to beat them," said the Auer coach.
Halle impresses with half-time two against Sandhausen: with a show of strength, Hallesche FC turned the game against promotion contender SV Sandhausen and made a giant leap in the third league table with the 4:1 (1-1). The charges of coach Sreto Ristic clearly defeated the second division relegated team in front of 6427 spectators at Leuna-Chemie-Stadion on Sunday. After Tim Maciejewski (23rd) trailed 0:1, Timur Gayret (41st) was able to equalize before the break. In the second half, Tunay Deniz (46th, 64th) and Dominic Baumann (76th) scored for the Saalestädter, who set off offensive fireworks. The second win of the season allowed HFC to leave the relegation zone. From rank 17, it went up to tenth place.
"Basically, I do not care how we make the goals, we have many facets in our game, today everything came up. But we don't want to hang it so high," Ristic said. Just 18 seconds after the restart, Henry Crosthwaite broke through on the right and passed to Deniz, who scored with a rich shot into the far corner. The Halles midfielder then made sure of the preliminary decision in this match after just over an hour with a directly converted free kick. Four minutes later, Baumann's goal removed the last doubts about Halle's second success of the year.
