Gelsenkirchen – This 2nd league is absolutely crazy! After second-placed SV Darmstadt 98 lost 2-1 at Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday, giving SV Werder Bremen a ball deep in the fight for promotion, leaders Schalke 04 had a crazy game against FC St. Pauli Saturday evening – and thus made the prematurely perfect direct return to the Bundesliga.

versus FC St Pauli Coach Mike Büskens’ side turned a 2-0 break deficit into a dramatic 3-2 home victory in a turbulent game at the local Veltins Arena. That’s it FC Schalke 04 a match day before the end of the season, the return to footballBundesliga no longer take. But it didn’t look like it at first. Hosts Hamburg took an early 2-0 lead (9th and 17th) thanks to a brace from just 19-year-old Igor Matanovic. However, Schalke were undeterred and cut time short by converting a penalty from Simon Terodde (46th).

It was also this Schalke striker who scored the 2-2 equalizer (71st). At least now the same Veltins Arena an absolute madhouse. But it was even stronger: five minutes later the substitute made the change Rodrigue Zalazar the arena with his cracker at 3:2 in absolute ecstasy. The now dismayed Hamburgers weakened – Marcel Beifuss rightly saw the red card (80th) after a too hard entry. In added time, double scorer Matanovic also saw the red card (90+4). After that, Schalke won over time and returned to the Bundesliga after just one year.

Steep template for Werder Bremen: Darmstadt 98 drops feathers, Schalke 04 makes advancement clear

Behind them, the situation on the board is tighter than ever with one game to play before the end of the season: behind leaders Schalke with 62 points, three teams are tied on 57 points each. Of Hamburger S.V. is Knappen’s top chaser as he did his homework in the 2-1 win over Hannover 96 on Saturday afternoon and thanks to the fourth win in a row he has by far the best goal difference of any promotion candidate (+31).

Darmstadt 98 (+22) are currently in third place, closely followed by the fourth-placed team Werder Bremen (+17), which still has the Aue game up its sleeve. Coach Ole Werner’s team is enough for the direct ascent four points in the last two games at Aue and against Jahn Regensburg. It doesn’t matter what the competition is doing. FC St. Pauli, who remain in fifth place (+13) after the bitter defeat at Schalke, now have almost no chance of entering the promotion to the Bundesliga. (mwi)
