Hamburger SV – VfL Bochum 0:0
The home weakness of Hamburger SV is becoming more and more blatant: The relegated Bundesliga team was also unable to beat VfL Bochum in a goalless draw. For the third time in a row, the Hanseats were left without their own goal in the Volksparkstadion and missed the jump to a direct promotion spot.
In front of 51,943 disappointed spectators, the hosts found it difficult to play the game. Coach Christian Titz bet on Khaled Narey in the centre of the attack, Jann-Fiete Arp and Pierre-Michel Lasogga first pressed the reserve bench. It took 22 minutes until Hwang Hee-Chan guest goalkeeper Manuel Riemann tested with a long-range shot. In the 37th minute, Tatsuya Ito circling the ball just past the crossbar, Aaron Hunt failed Riemann (45th).

But coach Robin Dutt’s team also had their chance before the change of sides. VfL goalscorer Lukas Hinterseer created danger with a header in the 28th minute. Only 60 seconds later, he almost duped HSV keeper Julian Pollersbeck, who was positioned far in front of his goal.
Three minutes after the restart, Robbie Kruse pushed the ball just past the goalkeeper’s goal. Titz had had enough of his team’s harmlessness after 64 minutes and replaced Ito with Lasogga.
120 seconds it almost hit HSV, but Pollersbeck defused a shot from Tom Weilandt. Then the first whistles went through the World Cup arena. Bakery Jatta from Hamburg made his second league debut with these expressions of displeasure.
SC Paderborn – Union Berlin 0:0
Union Berlin missed the leap to the top of the table in the 2nd Bundesliga. In the uneventful pursuit duel at SC Paderborn, the aspirant for promotion did not exceed 0:0 on Sunday. Union remained undefeated on the 10th matchday and is still in the top group. Also the home strong Paderborner are in striking distance.
In an intensively led meeting Paderborn had in the first run somewhat more play portions. However it did not succeed to the east Westphalians to provide before the gate for danger. Also the offensive play of the defensively very stable citizens of Berlin stopped.
Also after the break both teams acted on eye level – although further on moderate spielerischen level. In the course of the second half Union became stronger and had with Sebastian Anderssons Lattentreffer (69.) bad luck.
Jahn Regensburg – SV Darmstadt 98 1:1 (0:1)
Jahn Regensburg lost valuable points in the fight for the top positions. In front of their own audience, the recently so strong Oberpfälzer had to make do with a 1:1 (0:1) against Darmstadt 98. Marco Grüttner was the scorer for Jahn (55th), who is now four points behind the second placed SpVgg Greuther Fürth. Thanks to the goal of Joevin Jones (36.), the guests managed the first point win after four defeats in a row.
The goal by Jones was unintentionally initiated by the Regensburgers themselves in front of 10,907 spectators. The hosts had caught themselves after a weak start in the meantime, had through Albion Vrenezi also the chance to lead (21.), but then they took a free-kick in the penalty area of the Darmstadt miserable: Serdar Dursun, Marcel Heller and Jones played the resulting counterattack perfectly.

Heller could hardly be stopped in the meantime. He himself had had an early chance to take the lead (2.), shortly before the break he lifted the ball with a counterattack only on the goal net his Lupfer only on the goal net (43.). Regensburg only came into play a little better after the surprising equalizer. Sebastian Stolze missed the winning goal shortly before the end (86th). In the meantime, however, Marvin Mehlem (76th) also had the threesome for Darmstadt on his feet.
