Werder at the beginning 1: 1 – promoted Dresden with a dream start | Free press

Düsseldorf (dpa) – Werder Bremen was spared at least one defeat at the start of the 2nd Bundesliga. The first division relegated team was able to be more satisfied than the guests with a 1: 1 (0: 0) at home in the north derby against Hannover 96 on Saturday evening.

Hanover’s Simon Falette gave Werder the lead in the 49th minute with a header own goal, while Marvin Ducksch managed to equalize the more dangerous 96 team just six minutes later.

«I think we could have closed the game at times. But we can also be lucky that Hanover didn’t kill us in the end, ”said Werder captain Ömer Toprak after the game on Sky TV. Hanover’s coach Jan Zimmermann mourned the missed opportunities from the final phase a little. “We got the first point today, a good point, but only one point,” said Zimmermann.

The other relegated FC Schalke 04 started on Friday with a 1: 3 against Hamburger SV. Dynamo Dresden took over the lead, at least for the time being, with a 3-0 (1-0) win in the promoted duel against FC Ingolstadt. Double goalscorers Christoph Daferner and Heinz Mörschel scored the goals for Alexander Schmidt’s team.

Hansa Rostock, who is playing in the second division for the first time after nine years of absence, experienced a false start and lost to Karlsruher SC with 1: 3 (0: 2). SV Darmstadt 98, which had to compete with a decimated squad due to the corona, also suffered a home defeat at the start with a 0: 2 (0: 1) against Jahn Regensburg. 1. FC Heidenheim and SC Paderborn separated 0-0.

For Dresden, Daferner scored the well-deserved lead in the 41st minute and the second goal after the break (56th). The decision was made by Joker Heinz Mörschel (67.), who after his solo run gave Ingolstadt goalkeeper Buntic no chance with his low shot from 14 meters. “A big compliment to the team,” said Dynamo coach Alexander Schmidt on Sky. «We were hungry for our first home win. “It was a great atmosphere, unfortunately I’m a bit hoarse now, but I’m happy to accept that. Now we’re enjoying victory. Of course, we know how to classify the victory that it was only the first step. “

In Rostock, a goal by John Verhoek that was subsequently disallowed in the 16th minute brought the well-starting home side a little out of step. KSC took advantage of this, taking a 2-0 lead through Christoph Kobald (42nd) and Philipp Hofmann (44th) before the break. The subsequent goal by Verhoek (52nd) gave the Rostock hope only briefly. Sebastian Jung made the decision with the 3-1 in the 79th minute.

In Darmstadt, Sarpreet Singh, new signing and loan from FC Bayern, put the guests in the lead in the 21st minute with his first second division goal. After the break, Benedikt Gimber increased to 2-0 (61st) against weakened Darmstadters, in whose ranks three players had tested positive for the corona virus before the game. The responsible health department had ordered all unvaccinated and non-recovered professionals to be quarantined at home. In order not to jeopardize the start of the season, the Hessians had filled their own squad with players from the U19.
