UPDATE, March 18, 10:20 p.m.: Darmstadt regained the top of the table with a win against Kaiserslautern
Fully deserved, Darmstadt beat Kaiserslautern 2-0 and returned to the top of the table with the home win. In a game that was at times very heated and characterized by numerous fouls and nicks, the guests from the Palatinate hardly played an offensive game at all. The south Hesse had little trouble to keep the zero defensively, but missed numerous big chances in the game. However, the usury of chances was not punished because passive Red Devils remained extremely far from a possible goal until the end. FCK remains without a goal in their fourth away game in a row. The last time that happened in Lautern was 14 years ago.
UPDATE, March 18, 9:25 p.m.: Darmstadt dominates the first half against Kaiserslautern
Darmstadt leads 2-0 at the break against Kaiserslautern and overall the lead is well deserved. Right from the start, the Palatinate brought a lot of fire and gall to the game, which was characterized over long stretches by numerous fouls and nicks that disrupted the flow of the game. Although the Hessians had the ball for long stretches, they didn’t know enough how to start with it.
Only when FCK had a good finish out of nowhere from Ritter (24th) did Lilien develop an increasing pull towards the opposing goal, but took the lead through a set piece. Stojilković only scored from a corner (36′) before he was even able to increase the lead shortly before half-time after a brilliant pass from Tietz (43′). The passive Red Devils have to increase their offensive significantly.
On the 25th matchday of the 2nd Bundesliga, the previous table leaders SV Darmstadt welcome the newly promoted 1. FC Kaiserslautern to the top game.
While the lilies can take another step towards promotion in this duel against the Palatinate, it is also a great opportunity for FCK, currently sixth in the table, to get even more involved in the promotion race with a threesome. With Dirk Schuster, the Lauterers also have a coach who knows exactly how to get promoted to the Bundesliga. He did that once with the FCK opponents from Saturday evening, the Darmstadt team.
Even the first round duel between FCK and Darmstadt on the Betzenberg was a real football festival for the neutral observer. In the 3:3 draw, Darmstadt only averted the imminent defeat to the newly promoted side by equalizing in added time. Aaron Seydel scored the late 3:3 for the lilies.
