Hennings lets Fortuna Düsseldorf cheer – Darmstadt beats Sandhausen

2. Bundesliga Friday

Fortuna Düsseldorf continued the streak of success in front of their home crowd and propelled SC Paderborn to the top of the 2nd Bundesliga table. After the 2-1 victory at 1. FC Magdeburg on Friday night, Düsseldorf, unbeaten at home for six months, also won against Paderborn 2-1 (2-1) and first sat at the top of the picture. The East Westphalians celebrated a 5-0 win against Karlsruher SC last weekend.

The Rhinelanders, who have suffered just one defeat in 15 games under coach Daniel Thioune, took a 1-0 lead after 81 seconds in front of 22,634 supporters thanks to Dawid Kownacki’s blistering start.

In an intense match worth seeing, the guests equalized through Felix Platte (21st) before striker Rouwen Hennings brought the hosts back in front (30th). Paderborn still had a good chance to make it 2-2 through Platte, but could no longer overcome Fortuna’s defence.

SV Darmstadt celebrate three points against SV Sandhausen

Darmstadt 98 celebrated their first win in the second game of the season. Fourth in the table last season, they won against SV Sandhausen 2-1 (1-1) and thus showed the reaction demanded by coach Torsten Lieberknecht in the face of the defeat at the start of the season in Regensburg. In front of 13,620 spectators in the sold-out Böllenfalltor stadium, Braydon Manu (9th) and Marvin Mehlem (55th) scored the goals for the Hessians. Aleksandr Zhirov (24th) scored for Sandhausen to equalize in the meantime.

The locals set the tone from the start. Manu capitalized on the second good chance with a shot from the left side of the penalty area into the top right corner for an early lead. Midway through the first half, Zhirov scored a surprising equalizer for Palatinate with a free-kick from a well-placed shot into the right corner.

Before the break, Darmstadt’s most active players were lucky that a shot from Janik Bachmann (38th) from six meters was too badly placed. After the substitution, Mehlem put the Hessians back in front after a remarkable one-two with Manu. In the last half hour, the game became more divided. The hardness of the duel increased and there were practically no dangerous situations.
