First division relegated SpVgg Greuther Fürth does not get going in the 2nd Bundesliga. After the derby bankruptcy against 1. FC Nürnberg and the embarrassing cup loss against the Stuttgarter Kickers, the Franconians did not get beyond a 1-1 (0-0) draw against Karlsruher SC. The goals were scored by Fürth’s Ragnar Ache (57′) and KSC midfielder Marvin Wanitzek (66′).

    The new Kleeblatt coach Marc Schneider is still waiting for his first competitive win after the fourth attempt. Karlsruhe is also still on the spot, but after two defeats at the start, coach Christian Eichner’s team got the first point of the season.

    After a weak first half, the duel between two insecure teams at least picked up speed in the second round. Ache used the best combination of the game to score his first second division goal and put Spielvereinigung ahead. But that didn’t last long: Oussama Haddadi jumped the ball in the penalty area – Wanitzek converted the penalty kick confidently. A little later, the 29-year-old almost followed up, but his second goal was denied for offside (79′).
