Good start for Fürth’s coach Zorniger

SpVgg Greuther Fürth gave their new coach Alexander Zorniger a perfect debut and left the bottom of the 2nd Bundesliga table. 1. FC Heidenheim, meanwhile, missed out on third place in the table after conceding a late goal.

The Franconians won 1-0 (1-0) against Arminia Bielefeld and shot the Bundesliga relegated to the bottom of the table. Zorniger succeeded the hapless Marc Schneider on Sunday.

In the first game under Zorniger’s direction, Fürth put in a decent performance – but didn’t have too much resistance against largely harmless guests. Armindo Sieb (30th) gave the hosts the lead, shortly afterwards referee Felix Brych left the field for a short knee treatment. The long-time FIFA referee was able to continue the game.

Fürth started the game with a lot of momentum, especially Branimir Hrgota was involved in many attacks. However, both teams failed to create chances at first. Significantly, the Fürth goal came from a mess in the Bielefeld penalty area. Goalscorer Sieb was ultimately shot by Guilherme Ramos and the ball flew into the visitors’ goal.

With the lead behind them, Fürth pushed to make it 2-0, but Hrgota’s shot cleared Ramos on the line for goalkeeper Martin Fraisl, who had already been beaten (45’+3′). After that, Fürth remained more dangerous and was closer to the second goal. Bielefeld hardly came to conclusions, played much too erratic and harmless.

Late goal: Heidenheim missed third place

The team coached by Frank Schmidt only drew 1-1 (1-0) at newly promoted FC Magdeburg and remains in fourth place with 24 points, three points ahead of pursuers Hannover 96.

“It’s hard to put into words. We played a very good away game for 93 minutes and 30 seconds,” Heidenheim’s defender Tim Siersleben summarized the game: “Of course it’s extremely bitter.”

Denis Thomalla’s opening goal (23′) was equalized by Tatsuya Ito (90’+3′) and thus not only prevented Heidenheim’s triumph, but also secured an important point for Magdeburg in the relegation battle. Coach Christian Titz’s team is still in 15th place with 14 points.

Heidenheim gave the hosts complete control in front of 19,352 spectators and defended resolutely. The guests used mistakes made by Magdeburg’s back line several times to finish off with quick counterattacks. Patrick Mainka (8th) and Tim Kleindienst (18th) had good chances to take the lead early on. The Magdeburgers could not capitalize on the many ball possessions, shot attempts were blocked again and again.

Titz had bet on the eleven that had recently won 3-2 at HSV. The hosts tried to put pressure on from the start, but weren’t forceful enough.

Instead, the Heidenheimers used one of their numerous counterattacks. After a cross by Jan-Niklas Beste, Thomalla was served by Kleindienst and finished effortlessly. Shortly before the final whistle, Ito struck for Magdeburg.
