Due to the defeat at the direct promotion competitor in Fürth, Holstein Kiel missed the table lead in league two. The Franks, on the other hand, jump to a direct promotion position due to the narrow success.
SpVgg Greuther Fürth won the top game of the 2nd Bundesliga against Holstein Kiel and is now the first pursuer of front runner Hamburger SV. Thanks to the 2-1 victory in the entertaining Monday game, the Franks improved to second place in the table. HSV, Fürth, VfL Bochum and Kiel are now tied with 42 points each.
Joshua Mees (4th minute) brought the Kielers, who negligently handled their chances, an early lead. Havard Nielsen (27.) managed the flattering equalizer with a picture book header.
Mühlings unlucky header own goal
A second goal from Nielsen (67th) was not given due to video evidence due to offside. Alexander Mühling (83) hit his own goal shortly before the end after a corner from Fürth and sealed the first defeat in the back of the season for Kiel. It was also the first away bust of the entire season for the storks.
Fürth’s sporting director, Rachid Azzouzi, said on “Sky”: “I’m proud of the team. We were missing five important players today very important victory. “
The aggressive and strong sprinters from Kiel played the Fürth almost dizzy again and again in the first half. The lack of the three important midfielders Paul Seguin and Sebastian Ernst (both suspended) and Julian Green (positive corona test) could clearly be seen in the Franks.
Reese: “You were callous”
Kiel’s Fabian Reese then said: “It can, it may even have to be 2-1 or 3-1 for the break. Then the game is different. Those are the moments that are decisive in a top game. They were a bit today far more callous. “
Coach Ole Werner’s team set the tone even after the break. Jae Sung Lee repeatedly escaped the Fürthers around the insecure Abdourahmane Barry. The Franconians now acted with more conviction and approached the Holstein gate. Mühling then involuntarily gave the home side the win with his own goal.
