Second division: Schalke loses in Regensburg and slips into crisis

Soccer Clap in Regensburg

Schalke is also slipping into crisis in the second division

FC Schalke goes under in Regensburg and is currently only mediocre in the second division. The lifeless appearance raises doubts about the high ambitions of the royal blues. Werder Bremen has not yet made it into the league either.

ÜSurprise leader Jahn Regensburg brutally embarrassed FC Schalke 04 and celebrated a great victory in the second division against the relegated team. After the impressive and well-deserved 4: 1 (1: 0) there is maximum football euphoria in the Upper Palatinate – at the traditional club from Gelsenkirchen, on the other hand, alarm mood breaks out again. The pressure on coach Dimitrios Grammozis is growing, the gap to the league leaders is already eight points after four games of the season.

In front of the permitted 5324 spectators in the Jahnstadion, only one team performed like a top team: Regensburg. In the fourth win in a row, the fans cheered the goals of Jan Niklas Beste (9th minute), Steve Breitkreuz (55th), David Otto (73rd) and Saspreet Singh (86th).

The fourth goal of the season by Simon Terodde (81st) did not tear Schalke away. Jahn was greedy, well-rehearsed and very effective. The team of coach Mersad Selimbegovic triumphed as a strong collective.

Schalke sadness and Regensburg jubilation

Schalke lacked the bite and a game idea. Striker Terodde was mostly signed off, there were hardly any chances. Before conceding the first goal, defender Florian Flick also had the ball chased away from Otto’s own penalty area. Goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann prevented the 0: 2 with a save against the strong Otto before the break.

Substitute loan player Ko Itakura was also unable to stop the defense after the break. The approximately 600 Schalke fans who traveled with them were served, the rest celebrated the Jahn professionals for minutes. “Oh, how beautiful is that”, the Regensburg audience chanted.

Karlsruher SC – Werder Bremen 0-0

SV Werder Bremen did not win in the third competitive game in a row. Despite more than 30 minutes of excess, the second division did not get beyond a 0-0 at Karlsruher SC.

The relegated player, who, in addition to the first round of the DFB Cup in Osnabrück and the 1: 4 swatter against Paderborn in the league, recently had to cope with a few player departures, has five points after four match days. KSC, still unbeaten this season, lost midfielder Marvin Wanitzek in the 57th minute to yellow-red, has eight points.

SC Paderborn – FC St. Pauli 3:1

SC Paderborn continues its winning streak and wins 3-1 against FC St. Pauli. Thanks to the victory, the team jumped to second place and is thus the first pursuer of Regensburg. Burgstaller gave St. Pauli the lead in the first half, 1: 1 Dzwigala with an own goal, and Michel turned the game around for Paderborn.
