Sandhausen (dpa) – In the second game of the evening, SpVgg Greuther Fürth missed a liberating blow after a disappointing start to the season. The Bundesliga relegated had to settle for a 1-1 (0-0) lead at home in the crisis duel against Karlsruher SC.
Sandhausen’s Janik Bachmann sealed with his winning goal shortly after the break (46th) the second defeat of Düsseldorf’s Fortuna in the 17th competitive game under coach Daniel Thioune. After a goalless first half, Bachmann scored just 45 seconds after the break. Fortuna ran in the final phase, but could no longer prevent the second victory of the sand houses.
In front of 9678 spectators in Fürth, however, Ragnar Ache gave the Franconians the lead (57th minute), Marvin Wanitzek equalized with a hand penalty (66th). Both teams are stuck further down the table.
After a sluggish initial phase, the game association determined the game for a long time. But Fürth also missed the goal threat. Karlsruhe’s offensive power Paul Nebel was lucky before the break not to be sent off with yellow-red after a hard challenge (40th).
In the second half there was more goal danger. After a one-two with Branimir Hrgota, Ache scored the lead from around 18 meters. This didn’t last long. After the video assistant was deployed, KSC was penalized after Oussama Haddadi had deflected a shot from Wanitzek with his hand. Wanitzek transformed placed. Centimeters were missing from Karlsruhe to make it 2-1 because Jerôme Gondorf was offside when he assisted Wanitzek. In the closing stages, KSC was closer to victory.
