Dresden in the second half with the only good chance of the game

Kaiserslautern was the better team for long stretches in the first half. Ultimately, there were hardly any compelling goal actions on either side before the break. Dynamo had to take out Paul Will after less than 20 minutes, who left the field in a daze after colliding with Daniel Hanslik. Will had to go to the hospital for observation. “He has a severe concussion. He was dizzy, he saw things twice,” said Dresden coach Guerino Capretti.

It became really dangerous for the first time in the 56th minute – from Dynamo Dresden: A cross from the left, kicked in by Guram Giorbelidze, was headed by Christoph Daferner to the right corner, but Lautern’s goalkeeper Matheo Raab saved the ball. Otherwise, there was a lack of momentum in the second half of the game, the game headed unerringly to 0-0 in the final phase – the decision will now be made on Tuesday.

FCK played the game with their new coach Dirk Schuster. He had replaced Marco Antwerpen after three defeats at the end of the season. The Dresdeners had not won a game in the entire second half of the 2nd Bundesliga. The last victory of the harmless Dresden team came on December 12, 2021 from 1-0 at Erzgebirge Aue.
