Venue: Continental Arena
Even in the 2nd Bundesliga, the season on the last weekend has actually been completed with the encounters of the 34th game day. However, the last remaining starting place for the coming season will also be played in the second division in the relegation. On Friday, 26 May at 18:00, the second league will be played between the third-league Jahn Regensburg and 1860 Munich.
The club Jahn Regensburg played a good part in this season in the 3rd league and accordingly, the team of coach Heiko Herrlich the chance to the rise to the 2nd Bundesliga over the relegation in any case deserved. It was really exciting until the end and only on the last day of the match was Jahn Regensburg finally able to bring the 3rd table place under the roof. For the direct rise to the 2nd Bundesliga it was not quite enough at Regensburg, because the team on the 35th matchday in the home game against the direct competitor for the 2nd place Holstein Kiel had no chance.
In the end, the team of coach Heiko Herrlich in this game also had to be deserved in the high score with 3-0 defeated. In the last 3 league games Jahn Regensburg knew again much better to please and could by a series of 3 wins still the 3rd table place before the pursuer 1. FC Magdeburg defend. Here, the Regensburgers at the Red-and-Weiß Erfurt, with 2 goals by Marco Grüttner and Jann George, were 4-1. In the home game against Chemnitzer FC after a 2: 2 Marc Lais with his goal but still for the happy 3: 2 home win. On the last Saturday, the trip to Prussia, where the Regensburgers were able to celebrate a 1: 0 away win a few minutes before the final whistle.
Through the success on the last day, Jahn Regensburg has now the chance to meet the dream of the rise to the 2nd Bundesliga via the relegation. Basically, the team is certainly an outsider in the two upcoming relegation games. Nevertheless, the coach will surely try everything to ensure a surprise. It remains to be seen whether the last selected Markus Palionis and Ali Odabas will again belong to the squad.
Provisional lineup: Pentke; Hofrath, Nachreiner, Knoll, Saller; Gaipl, Lais, Thommy, Pusch George; Grüttner
At the club 1860 Munich simply no rest returns and the team is despite great ambitions before this season again just before the descent into the 3rd league. At the request of the investor Hasan Ismaik, the club has once again exchanged the active persons a few months ago. As a coach, the lions with the Portuguese Vitor Pereira have brought a man who has previously worked for such prestigious clubs as FC Porto, Olympiakos Piraeus and Fenerbahce. But Pereiera did not manage to position 1860 Munich permanently in the middle of the table during his term of office. From the last 5 games in the league, the lions won only one victory and went on the other side 4 times as losers from the court.
The win was won by 1860 Munich on 32nd matchday at Dynamo Dresden, where the team managed to score a 2-1 win over Christian Gytkjaer and Levent Aycicek. The next blow was then in the home game against VFL Bochum, when the team went with a 1: 1 draw in the half time, but in the second round about 10 minutes before the end but still the decisive hit to the 2: 1 defeat had to. On the last Sunday we went to Heidenheim, where the team managed to reach the 14th place in the table after Stefan Aigner’s 1-1 draw. But after 1860 the game at 1. FC Heidenheim but still lost with 2: 1 and the competitor Arminia Bielefeld parallel a point in Dresden fetched, 1860 Munich could not leave the relegation place.
At 1860 Munich, the fans had also dreamed of an upturn as a new Cheftrainer after the commitment of Vitor Pereira. But this did not happen, and the lions had to detain themselves in the relegation. In the relegation match in Regensburg, the coach may have to refrain from Sebastian Boenisch, Felix Uduokhai and Frank Boya, who last had to deal with various injuries.
Provisional line-up: Ortega; Pongracic, Ba, Boenisch; Lumor, Liendl, Lacazette, bush; Aycicek, Gytkjaer, Aigner
