In front of the southwest blast between Kaiserslautern and Saarbrücken, FCS fans had set up crosses and a coffin at Lauterer Betzenberg – it was by no means a funeral for the Red Devils, who were threatened with relegation. The 2: 1 against FCS could be more of a resurrection in the relegation battle.
There is no scanning at all, both teams get started right away – and produce errors …
Sverko loses the ball in midfield, Lautern switches over at lightning speed and Hanslik dusts off Lautern’s early lead (11th). The early goal that FCS coach Lukas Kwasniok wanted to avoid. But Saarbrücken strikes back. Free kick Barylla, FCS captain Zeitz heads to 1: 1 in the corner (22nd). But the Saarlanders give the game back too quickly, Breitenbach with Mega Bock, Hanslik hits again to 2: 1 (24th).
And it goes back and forth. Saarbrücken’s Shipnoski is through, Lautern keeper Spahic directs his shot around the post with his fingertips (34th), then he also has Uaferro’s head safe (43th).
The Saarlanders come better from the break, Sverko’s shot from nine meters goes over it (51.). Only a short time later, Spahic is back when he fends off Jänicke’s Knaller (55th). The derby – classy and heated, in front of the stadium Lautern’s fans celebrate loudly, the FCS said goodbye to hundreds of fans in Saarbrücken with Bengalos and firecrackers.
In the urge phase of the FCS Bakhat can make everything clear, his shot from five meters misses to the right (64th).
Saarbrücken gives Lautern the victory because they miserably miss the best chances: Jänicke promising in Spahic’s arms (67th), Jacob’s header from an acute angle goes right over (68th) and Froese with a poor attempt from eight meters (74th). Lautern does it very well, keeps the ball safely in its own ranks – and brings the very important victory over time.
The FCS finally loses fourth place out of sight, Lautern is now level on points with Bayern II on the first relegation place – and can dream of relegation again. FCK captain Jean Zimmer is relieved after the final whistle: “It is important that we have scored these three points. I don’t really care how! “
