Regensburg vs Heidenheim 3:2

Just like Dortmund, Heidenheim came into the final round dependent on itself and needing a win. Just like Dortmund, Heidenheim fell behind twice as much. But unlike Dortmund, they managed to complete an unimaginable turnaround in extra time and celebrate at the end of the lockout cycle.

Regensburg, already practically relegated, improved to a sensational 0-2 thanks to a dramatic pair of Prince Osei Owusu (51 and 57). A minute after the second goal, the visitors shrank thanks to an own goal by Benedict Zeller, but the real drama unfolded in extra time.

A precise penalty by Jan Niklas Basta gave Heidenheim hope in the 93rd minute, and the long-awaited winning goal came in the 99th minute from the feet of Tim Kleindienst. Hamburg fans had already burst onto the pitch for the match to prepare for the promotion celebrations, but were informed that they would have to wait a little longer for a return to the top division.
