Darmstadt – SV Darmstadt 98 defied an early dismissal and second division promoted SG Dynamo Dresden spoiled the leap into the promotion ranks.
The Saxons suffered a 0: 1 (0: 1) defeat in front of 7020 spectators in the stadium at the Böllenfalltor in the Hessians. Tobias Kempe (15th) scored Darmstadt’s winning goal.
The Südhessen had to play undernumbered for a long time because Fabian Schnellhardt saw the red card for gross foul play (8th). But Dresden also had to finish the game after the yellow-red card for Julius Kade (repeated foul play, 71st) to ten. Dynamo has received the third defeat in a row.
In a hectic game from the start, the lilies took the lead after a quarter of an hour with a free kick from Kempe from 25 meters with the active help of Dynamo goalkeeper Kevin Broll. Despite being outnumbered, the Darmstadt team looked more determined afterwards. The Saxons acted largely unimaginative in their attack efforts. Christoph Daferner missed the greatest Dresden opportunity of the game with a header from close range (77th).
