Hamburger SV suffered a setback in the promotion of the 2nd Bundesliga.
At Hannover 96, HSV lost 0: 1 (0: 1).
Dynamo Dresden won 3: 1 (0: 0) against Karlsruher SC and Heidenheim beat the surprise team from Regensburg surprisingly 3: 0 (1: 0).
After twelve league games without a defeat, Hamburger SV has remained without points for the first time. Robert Glatzel already hit his head in the 11th minute to make the alleged 1-0 at Hannover 96, the goal was previously withdrawn by the video assistant because Bakery Jatta was offside. Shortly afterwards, Hanover's Linton Maina converted a ball that had ricocheted off the post to make it 1-0 (14th). The HSV protested against the goal, which in their opinion preceded a foul by Sei Muroya on Jatta. The video assistant did not intervene.
The guests dominated the action on the lawn, especially in the first half, but rarely came to a conclusion. Glatzel missed the greatest opportunity, his header just a few centimeters past the 96 goal in the 41st minute. After the break, little changed in the course of the game, HSV continued to set the tone. In the 63rd minute Jatta failed from close range at the Hanoverian goalkeeper Martin Hansen. For the hosts threatened with relegation, it was their first victory in eight games under interim coach Christoph Dabrowski.
SSV Jahn Regensburg also lost its path to success.
1. FC Heidenheim prevented Jahn's jump to second place and is now intervening again in the promotion race.
Thanks to the third win in a row, Heidenheim has now moved up to sixth with 27 points.
The gap to Regensburg, which is still in third place, is only one point.
On the second, Darmstadt 98, there are two points.
Christian Kühlwetter gave the hosts a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute with a nice flick into the top right corner of the goal.
After the ex-Heidenheimer David Otto saw the red card after an assault on Kühlwetter (42nd), Regensburg had to play outnumbered for more than one half.
Robert Leipertz (77th) and Jan Schöppner (90th + 1) used the weakness of the guests for more hits.
Thanks to Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer, Dynamo Dresden celebrated an important victory in the relegation battle.
In the Rudolf Harbig Stadium, which was empty due to corona restrictions, the U20 national player scored two goals against Karlsruher SC (47th, 55th minute) for the promoted team, and Christoph Daferner (69th) scored.
Fabian Schleusener (52nd) managed to equalize, KSC also had to deal with yellow-red against Kyoung-rok Choi (61st).
Dresden expanded the lead over Erzgebirge Aue on relegation place 16 before the direct duel to five points.
