After a thrilling relegation first leg, everything is still open in the fight for the last second division place between SSV Jahn Regensburg and SV Wehen Wiesbaden.

The 2:2 (1:0) in Regensburg’s Jahnstadion means a small advantage for the Wiesbaden team, because they are 16th in the second division. has the home advantage on its side in the second leg against the third division football team next Tuesday (8.30 p.m./SAT.1 and Sky).

Noah Ganaus (27th) gave Jahn the lead in the dominant first half in front of 13,378 spectators. The guests hit back after the break with Robin Heußer (66th) and John Iredale, who had just been substituted. Jahn then also managed a comeback thanks to the outstanding attacker Dominik Kother (80th), who had already prepared the 1-0.

Wiesbaden turns the game around – and still doesn’t win

Jahn has already made it into the 2nd league twice after finishing third in the third division via relegation. In 2012, the Upper Palatinate team prevailed against Karlsruher SC, and in 2017 against TSV 1860 Munich. The current Jahn team under coach Joe Enochs initially built on their past successes in the first leg. Robin Ziegele was fouled for a long pass forward, but referee Tobias Reichel recognized the advantage. Kother released Ganaus, who finished successfully.

After three substitutions at the break, the guests found their way into the game better. Ivan Prtjain’s header was a signal (53′). Then Heusser poked the ball into the goal as he followed up. Joker Iredale followed up. Even after Kothers made it 2-2, both teams were still trying to score the winning goal.
