The relegated Bundesliga arrived in the second division on the second day of the match.

Werder Bremen and FC Schalke 04 each had their first sense of achievement.

The Revierklub won 3-0 (2-0) against last year's third Holstein Kiel on Sunday and achieved their first second division win in more than 30 years.

The Bremen team recorded a spectacular last-minute success, winning an exciting game at Fortuna Düsseldorf 3-2 (1-0) in stoppage time.

Hamburger SV, on the other hand, had to be content with a 1: 1 (1: 0) against the strong promoted Dynamo Dresden at the home premiere of their new coach Tim Walter.

Schalke cheered goal scorer Simon Terodde.

The 33-year-old, who scored on matchday one, initiated the first win of the season for his new team with his two goals (2nd / 21st) and scored his second division goals 144 and 145. New signing Marius Bülter (68th) also scored on the Baltic coast against the Kielers, who have fallen back to the last place in the table.

Bremen wins too

The lucky people from Bremen were extremely relieved after their 3-2 win in Düsseldorf on Saturday evening and, according to captain Ömer Toprak, experienced a “rollercoaster of emotions”. Only a penalty converted by Maximilian Eggestein in the sixth minute of stoppage time gave the guests the victory. “This victory was so important to have finally won another competitive game,” said coach Markus Anfang. The last victory in Bremen was almost five months ago.

In front of 12,850 spectators in the Düsseldorf arena, Joshua Sargent (39th / 64th) took the lead twice with his first competitive double, which Rouwen Hennig's (47th) and Fortuna's newcomer Khaled Narey (90th) were each able to equalize.

For Düsseldorf it was a first setback after the 2-0 win in Sandhausen.

Nevertheless, board member Klaus Allofs emphasized in the "Doppelpass" on Sunday: "We remain ambitious and want maximum success."

KSC at the top

At their home premiere, the goal from Ludovit Reis (5th) gave Hamburg an early lead and gave up further good chances through David Kinsombi and Robert Glatzel. This gave the guests the chance to score an equalizer from Tim Knipping (68th). This meant that HSV missed their second win in a row. FC St. Pauli also failed to make the second point three and had to be satisfied with a 0-0 win at Erzgebirge Aue. For the Saxons it was already the second 0-0 after the start of the season.

At the top of the table were Karlsruher SC and Jahn Regensburg with two wins.

“That is exactly how we imagined that we would start the new season on a positive note,” said Regensburg's captain Benedikt Gimber after the 3-0 win against SV Sandhausen.

For the first time in the single-track second division, the Upper Palatinate managed two wins from the start.

KSC, which jumped to first place with a 3-0 win against Darmstadt 98, also celebrated a perfect start to the season.

Philip Hofmann contributed two hits.

"To start with two wins is wonderful," said the striker.

Sports director Oliver Kreuzer warned against too high expectations.

“This is a snapshot.

You have to see where the KSC comes from.

The candidate for promotion is a little too high. "
