Darmstadt shakes to victory over KSC


Second division leaders SV Darmstadt 98 remain on course for the Bundesliga. The Südhessen celebrated a happy 2-1 (1-1) victory against Karlsruher SC and returned to the road to success after the 0-1 defeat at Fortuna Düsseldorf.

In front of 17,650 spectators in the sold-out stadium at Böllenfalltor, Braydon Manu and Phillip Tietz (50th) scored the goals for the lilies in the 26th minute. Fabian Schleusener (11th) gave Baden an early lead.

Darmstadt set the tone at the beginning and had the first chances. However, a goal by Filip Stojilkovic (3rd) was denied due to offside. A header from Tietz (9th) was too unplaced. The hosts didn’t let themselves be deterred by Schleusener’s surprising deficit, who skilfully steered the ball over the line from close range.

After the equalizer, Tietz (34th) again missed a good opportunity. Shortly before the break, Darmstadt goalkeeper Marcel Schuhen saved his team from going behind again after a shot by Marvin Wanitzek. Tietz rewarded the efforts of the leaders at the beginning of the second half, shortly afterwards Stojilkovic missed alone in front of KSC goalkeeper Marius Gersbeck. After that, the KSC reared up energetically, but could not take advantage of several good chances. Lucas Cueto alone missed the equalizer three times.
