Kaufmann is the addressee of a steep pass to Pherais in the offensive center. However, the pass from the new signing from Borussia Dortmund II is imprecise and ends up with home goalkeeper Müller.
The FCN is approaching for the first time. Gyamerah crosses from the right to the five, where Daferner lets the ball slide over the crown. Linde intercepts nonchalantly.
Both teams are struggling in the finding phase. It shows that the guests are interested in an active participation. Overall, however, not much is working together on both sides.
Here we go!
Heidenheim versus Braunschweig – round one in the Voith Arena is open!
Now the game is running. The sun has disappeared on the Kiel Fjord. The sky is cloudy at 17 degrees. However, there should be no threat of precipitation during the course of the game. In this respect, the conditions in the Holstein Stadium in front of around 12,000 spectators are excellent.
Shortly before the start of the game there is a minute’s silence for Uwe Seeler, who died on Thursday at the age of 85.
There is a minute’s silence for the DFB honorary captain Uwe Seeler, who died on Thursday. All actors on the pitch wear black ribbons for this occasion.
A few moments ago, the teams led by referee Deniz Aytekin entered the pitch.
The shamrocks are still waiting for him. Despite the playful superiority, at home against Holstein Kiel it was only enough for a point division (2:2). The big problem of the eleven from the new coach Marc Schneider: the exploitation of chances. Especially in the final phase they had numerous great chances to pull the game on their side. So now it should work against Nuremberg.
These two clubs meet for the sixth time. The first three settlements date from the 1950s and 1960s and all went to Lauterer. Since then, they have only met in the 2017/2018 second division season. At that time there were always home wins. Kiel celebrated their only win against FCK so far with a 2-1 win at the Holstein Stadium.
Coach Michael trusts the Lower Saxony, who won the last competitive match with FCH 1-0 in the Eintracht Stadium at the end of January 2021 and who presented another new signing during the week with Keita Endo (1. FC Union Berlin, loan). Also squint at the staff who started last weekend in the 2-0 home defeat to Hamburger SV. With Hoffmann (Sunderland AFC), Decarli (VfL Bochum), Kaufmann (Karlsruher SC) and Pherai (Borussia Dortmund II), four players signed in the summer are back in the starting XI.
Kaiserslautern had the honor of playing the opening game of the season at home against Hannover 96 on Matchday 1. A goal by Kevin Kraus in added time gave the newly promoted team from the Palatinate a much-celebrated 2-1 win and thus a tailor-made start. It now has to be confirmed. Incidentally, FCK were also largely successful in their preparations, only suffering a defeat against FC Lugano from Switzerland (2:3). The other games against SV Rülzheim (9:0), SpVgg Unterhaching (3:0) and KAS Eupen from Belgium (4:1) were victorious.
At the start of the season, KSV had to compete in Fürth last Saturday. Thanks to a converted penalty by Alexander Mühling in the 80th minute, Kiel got a point (2:2) in the Bundesliga relegated team and were thus able to confirm their series of unbeaten friendly matches. Since the end of June, Kiel has celebrated three wins in four games against St. Pauli (2-0), Wolfsberger AC from Austria (1-0) and Silkeborg IF from Denmark (3-2). They drew 2-2 against Qarabağ FK from Azerbaijan.
Speaking of winning: The club didn’t have that on the last day of the game. At the start of the season there was a bankruptcy (2:3) in the top duel at 1. FC St. Pauli. Things didn’t look good at the time, they were 3-0 down at half-time, but came back just before the final whistle. So today the next highly interesting match is coming up – is it enough against your arch-rival to win the first game of the new season?
On the side of Ostwuerttemberg, who had the second-best home team in the 2nd Bundesliga with 34 points last season and who are looking forward to the first six-point start in this league, coach Frank Schmidt gave up in comparison to the 1-0 away win at FC Hansa Rostock on personnel changes. In the 4-3-3, Beste (SSV Jahn Regensburg) is once again the only newcomer to play from the start.
Of the newcomers to the Storks, only Timo Becker (Schalke) was considered from the start. Jann-Fiete Arp was on loan from FC Bayern last season at the Kiel Fjord. Marvin Schulz (Lucerne), Tim Schreiber (on loan from RB Leipzig) and Marvin Obuz (on loan from Cologne) are at least on the bench. At FCK, Andreas Luthe (Union Berlin) and Erik Durm (Frankfurt) are two newcomers to the starting XI. As already indicated, Ben Zolinski is injured. Lex-Tyger Lobinger and Lars Bünning are sitting outside again today and are hoping for a substitution.
Eintracht Braunschweig had to admit defeat to Hamburger SV 2-0 on their return to the national football lower house, but in the meantime caused great difficulties for the promotion favorites. The lions missed a number of good counterattack chances in the first half, while their defense did not allow the red trousers to make any clear shots. Even after the change of sides, they convinced with a good defensive performance, before HSV turned to winning ways before the start of the final phase (67th, 76th).
Compared to the start of the season last Saturday, Marcel Rapp only makes one change. Instead of Johannes van den Bergh, who will take a seat on the bench today, Simon Lorenz will start in Kiel. There is also a change on the part of the guests. However, this is due to Ben Zolinski’s knee injury. Daniel Hanslik takes over his place in the Lauterer initial formation.
After one year of being part of the Fürth Bundesliga, the time has come again: The Frankenderby is coming up! The two clubs will meet in a competitive game for the 86th time – incidentally, this was the first time in 1945/46 when both teams drew in what was then the Oberliga Süd (2-2). Overall, FCN is ahead: in 22 draws, it won 37 times, while the game association only won 27 times.
1. FC Heidenheim 1846 has successfully started its ninth consecutive season in the 2. Bundesliga. Last year’s sixth, whose big problem last season was the attack (43 goals), won the away game at FC Hansa Rostock 1-0 with a diving header from Schimmer shortly after the break (50th minute). At the Baltic Sea, however, the blue-red-whites were still far from performing at the level hoped for and only improved slightly in the second half after a nervous first half.
