1. Fc kaiserslautern wins basement duel in darmstadt

The 1. FC kaiserslautern can continue to hope to stay in the league, while SV darmstadt 98 comes ever closer to its second relegation in a row.

In a repeat of the 2. Fubball-bundesliga won the last in the table on wednesday evening with 2-1 (1-0) at the second to last and thus jerked up to one point to the lilies.

"We are overjoyed, no question about it," said FCK coach michael frontzeck. "I’ve been coach at kaiserslautern for a good three weeks now and i’m very happy with what i’m seeing from the team."With a win on saturday at FC erzgebirge aue, the team from lauter, which was still far behind during the winter break, could even come within one point of the non-relegation places.

Brandon borrello in the 16. And phillipp mwene in 61. The FCK goals were scored in the 17th minute in front of 17,400 spectators. Darmstadt shortened in injury time by felix platte only to 1:2 (90.+1). While the red devils already celebrated the third victory in the fourth game under frontzeck, the darmstadter lost for the fourth time in a row.

"We played a good home game and tried everything until the last minute," said lilien coach dirk schuster. "In terms of readiness and attitude, it was absolutely okay. If we continue to show this, we will also score the necessary points."

The game was played on 24. January already started once, but stopped at 0:0 during halftime break. The FCK coach at the time, jeff strasser, had to be taken to hospital with cardiac arrhythmia. "We will now send jeff a whatsapp immediately after the game so that he knows that we are thinking of him today," said FCK goalkeeper marius muller. Midfielder nils seufert also emphasized: "of course we also played for jeff strasser today!"

Darmstadt was clearly superior for a half and missed a goal through artur sobiech (20.), dong-won ji (21.) and yannick stark (30.) also several good opportunities. But the hosts did not recover from the second loud goal.
