TSG Backnang overtook table leaders Sport-Union Neckarsulm with a victory at SSV Reutlingen on Friday, who in turn took a lead at FC Nöttingen. Title contender SGV Freiberg showed rising form against Ravensburg and could rely on goal-hungry Dominik Salz.
Powerful shot: TSG Backnang (in gray) laid the foundation for victory at SSV Reutlingen early on.
Friday evening already set the course at the top of the table: Since Sport-Union Neckarsulm lost 1: 2 in Nöttingen, TSG Backnang took the lead in the parallel game. At the Reutlinger Kreuzeichene in the 7th minute, a Binakaj flank found Doser’s head, who skilfully let the precise cross slip over the skull, so that the ball landed in the corner unsustainable for goalkeeper wisdom. Binakaj then made it 2-0 himself with a low penalty shot into the corner. Before that, he fooled several Reutlingers in the penalty area, one of whom only knew what to do with a foul.
But Reutlingen had a good chance to come back after half an hour: Backnang’s goalkeeper Guttenson ricocheted off a long-range shot, Zukic put the ball past him, but hit the post from a somewhat acute angle. Since the SSV otherwise posed too little danger and Backnang acted very confidently overall, the victory was never in serious danger. Reutlingen’s Denis Lübke was annoyed after the final whistle: “The gaps were way too big, we couldn’t pull it off. We weren’t on the pitch at all. That was way too harmless.”
The Sport-Union Neckarsulm did not have to undertake such a relentless analysis, but the 2-1 defeat in Nöttingen was still attributable to coach Marcel Busch’s men. After a decent start, which was crowned with the penalty goal by Pander (28th), the Sport-Union missed one of the existing counter-chances to convert it to 2-0. And so Nöttingen, which was also dangerous from time to time, to equalize in the 54th minute by de Santis, who hit from an acute angle. Now Neckarsulm ran out of ideas, the FCN got the upper hand and turned the game through Gür in the 70th minute. The final offensive of the guests remained without profit, so the table lead was gone again for the time being.
Ostrich shock is only short-lived
The SGV Freiberg, which has two games less than many competitors, but did not start as desired with just one win from four games before, also wants to go to higher regions. Against the much better started FV Ravensburg there was the first step in the desired direction. In the 7th minute it rained in the back for the first time, Paul Strauss met for the early FVR lead. That only affected the well-known sports and singing club for a short time, Salz equalized in the 29th minute and took the lead in the 50th minute. With his second goal of the season, Grüttner increased this by twelve hand revolutions, before salt was again on the spot in the 77th minute. Freiberg drove unassailable on the road to victory, the 2: 4 by Rahman Soyudogru only marginally diminished the joy. The Freiberg victory was all the more remarkable as the SGV had to play ten from the 40th minute after a yellow-red card.
FC 08 Villingen also felt joy, with a 3-0 win at Astoria Walldorf II in the top group. Yahyaijan scored after just seven minutes, then Villingen had everything under control and Sautner was a sure shooter to make it 2-0 (40th). Twelve minutes before the final whistle, Albrecht added the 3-0 he deserved. FSV 08 Bietigheim-Bissingen is tied on points with Villingen, who successfully completed the mandatory task against TSV Ilshofen (3: 1).
While the home games of the Stuttgarter Kickers (against SV Linx) and FV Lörrach-Brombach (against 1. CfR Pforzheim) were canceled due to Corona, SV Oberachern was able to leave the relegation zone with a 3-1 win against Rielasingen-Arlen. Göppingen jumped 2-1 against Freiburg FC in the upper middle of the table, while Dorfmerkingen narrowly won the cellar duel with 1. FC Bruchsal.
