Osnabrück vs. Braunschweig: draw in the duel of Lower Saxony

Osnabrück (dpa/lni) – Eintracht Braunschweig kept VfL Osnabrück at a distance in the race for promotion from the 3rd football league. Eintracht came to a happy 1-1 (1-1) in the duel between the two teams relegated from the second division on Saturday and, third in the table, is four points ahead of VfL, who, however, played a match least in fifth place. . In front of 12,881 spectators at the bridge stadium in Bremer, former Osnabrück player Sebastian Müller gave the guests the lead in the 18th minute. Marc Heider scored the deserved equalizer for the rojiblancos seconds before the break.

The game was supposed to take place on February 19, but had to be canceled at that time because the stadium had been damaged by storms.

Osnabrück, who had to do without Ulrich Taffertshofer and Andrew Wooten, who tested positive for the corona virus, were the better team in the first round but, like so many times this season, were initially unable to take advantage of their chances. So the Braunschweigers took the lead with the first significant opportunity. Suddenly Müller was completely free in the penalty area and did not give VfL goalkeeper Philipp Kühn a chance to defend himself.

The hosts did not seem surprised and bravely continued to play forward. The reward: With the last scene of the first round, Heider managed to equalize. Before the match, the club had announced the extension of the captain’s contract for one more season.

After the change of sides, the hosts continued to determine the game and continued to have better opportunities. But it was not enough for the winning goal. Eintracht, on the other hand, had no more chances to score and in the end they could settle for a draw. However, the Braunschweig side failed to level on points with second-placed 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
