Game rotated, league leadership expanded: FC St. Pauli continues to swim on the wave of success in the 2nd Bundesliga. Hamburg won 4: 2 (0: 1) at 1. FC Heidenheim despite an early deficit and after their fourth win in a row they have three points ahead of pursuers Jahn Regensburg and Schalke 04. Heidenheim missed out on the top group. Tobias Mohr (4th minute) shocked the guests in front of 8013 spectators with his early opening goal, but a brace from Guido Burgstaller (55th, 60th) and Maximilian Dittgen (56th) turned the game in favor of St. Pauli within five minutes. Dittgen (81st) increased to 4: 1, before Tim Kleindienst (85th) still corrected the result.
"There is no reason for me to change anything in the starting XI," said St. Pauli's coach Timo Schultz before the game.
Why should it? His team had played strongly before the international break and celebrated three wins in a row.
But the Hamburg team did not come into play at all and were caught off guard: After a defensive mistake by the guests, Mohr was able to insert free-standing from 13 meters.
The Heidenheimer remained the more dangerous team and came to deals again and again.
Only after the break did the Kiez kickers wake up - and how.
Burgstaller and Dittgen met from close range before the former Schalke scored his ninth goal of the season with a brilliant shot.
No winner between FCI and Holstein
Coach Marcel Rapp missed three points in his first game with second division club Holstein Kiel.
The storks had to be content with a 1: 1 (1: 0) at the previous bottom of the table, FC Ingolstadt.
The Austrian Benedikt Pichler (13th) headed the North Germans in the lead, Stefan Kutschke (46th) was also successful with a header to equalize.
The Kiel could not break away from the end of the table with the point.
The new FCI coach André Schubert, who used to work as a trainer in Kiel, was able to score at his home premiere and lead his protégés to the penultimate place in the table with five points.
The Schanzer ended a negative series of four bankruptcies in a row.
Both teams had problems finding their rhythm of the game.
The teams' game was characterized by numerous ball losses, and the game did not flow properly.
However, Kiel took the first chance to take the lead.
Mikkel Kirkeskov did the preparatory work for Pichler's goal.
Ingolstadt tried to turn the game around, but there was a lack of assertiveness and the last pass into the depths.
So scoring chances remained scarce.
Pichler and Phil Neumann (each 40th) had the chance to make it 2-0.
Marc Stendera (45 + 1) was the hosts' first player to cause danger in front of the Holstein goal.
Immediately after the restart, the Ingolstadt team had more fortune in the end, Kutschke, who was not marked tightly enough, used the cross from Marcel Gaus to make it 1-1.
KSC sends Aue back to the bottom of the table
Karlsruher SC celebrated their second home win of the season. Coach Christian Eichner's team won 2-1 (0-0) on Saturday thanks to an increase in performance in the second half against FC Erzgebirge Aue, who were still without a win and slipped back to the bottom of the table under their new coaching duo Marc Hensel and Carsten Müller.
After a weak first half Karlsruhe turned up in front of 12,000 spectators and came through a goal by substitute Fabian Schleusener (46th minute) and the fifth goal of the season by top scorer Philipp Hofmann (67th) to the deserved victory. The Baden initially moved up to fifth, there they are three points behind the promotion zone. Aue could only shorten in the closing stages with a free kick from Anthony Barylla (83). KSC goalkeeper Marius Gersbeck had previously seen the red card after a foul (80th).
Aue was initially the better team.
The Saxons made the space tight in midfield and created good chances to score.
But Nicolas Kühn failed to Gersbeck (16th), and Babacar Gueye aimed just past the left (18th).
After the break, however, the picture was completely different: KSC came out of the cabin with a lot of momentum and found their way onto the winning road with Schleusener's quick 1-0.Keywords: tobias mohr, front, goals, table leadership, guido burgstaller, st. pauli, timo schultz, league, game, stefan kutschke, aue, front runner, 2nd bundesliga, points, andré schubert
