Darmstadt 98 has lost the lead in the 2nd Bundesliga. In Hanover it is only enough for the south Hesse to a draw.
SV Darmstadt 98 couldn’t get past a draw in Hanover. On Sunday, the two teams separated 2:2 (1:1). Sebastian Stolze with an own goal (18th minute) and substitute Aaron Seydel (62nd) scored for the lilies. Cedric Teuchert (35′) and Julian Börner (50′) were successful for the home side.
Hanover puts Lilien in the lead
Led by athletics coach Kai-Peter Schmitz, who took charge in the absence of head coach Torsten Lieberknecht, who was ill with Corona, Lilien started with Mathias Honsak on the left to get some pace into the game. Marvin Mehlem instead took a seat on the bench. The implementation was not really successful at first. But then 96 midfielder Stolze played into the Lilien’s cards.
The youngster unluckily headed a corner kick into his own net and surprisingly gave the South Hesse team the lead (18′). In principle, the lilies themselves had not previously posed a goal threat. The busy Hanoverians were clearly more present and actually the better team.
Shoes saves a draw at the break
With the opening goal, however, the Lilien were able to counterattack and had the necessary speed on the pitch with Honsak and his counterpart Tim Skarke on the right. It would have made it 2-0 quickly, but Skarke aimed just wide of the far post after a pass from Honsak (25′).
As suddenly as the lead came, it was gone again in the 35th minute. After losing the ball in midfield, Lower Saxony makes it quick. Teuchert took measurements from afar and didn’t give Lilien keeper Marcel Schuhen, who had only half-heartedly rushed out of his box, no chance. When it came to shoes, however, the Lilien were able to show that they couldn’t go behind at the break because the goalkeeper sensationally turned a pointed ball from Niklas Hult around the post (45th).
Standard over there, standard over there
Five minutes after the restart, Hannover then took the lead after Darmstadt lost sight of central defender Börner completely in a corner kick and the defender only had to head the ball (50′). This time it was Lilien’s turn to fight back, also by standard. Seydel headed a free-kick cross from Tobias Kempe into the net from a suspected offside position (62′), but after consulting the video referee it was clear: no offside, 2:2. Hult missed the renewed direct response from the 96ers with a powerful shot at the post (69th).
In the last 20 minutes both teams pushed forward and wanted to force the win. But neither Frank Ronstadt (78th) nor Hendrick Weydandt (82nd, 84th) could decide the game for their colors.
If you want to see it positively: The lilies now have 40 points on their account and have practically managed to stay up. As fourth in the table, the southern Hesse have not been promoted for a long time. Before the match day, the lilies had led the league.
