The guests of the Alm show a strong performance against the promotion candidate and earn a point. Crucial: the second half.
The two promotional candidates Union Berlin and 1. FC Heidenheim left in the 2nd Bundesliga points. The Berlin came against the trained former Uwe Neuhaus competition rivals Arminia Bielefeld only to a 1: 1 (1: 0) and thus could lose the second place in the course of the 23rd matchday. Heidenheim had to be satisfied with a 0: 0 on SpVgg Greuther Fürth.
Joshua Mees (23) took the lead on Friday when he rebounded with his knee. Bielefeld pushed the second half on the equalizer and was rewarded: First, Andreas Voglsammer hit the post (47), then defeated Jonathan Clauss (61) and saved the guests the deserved point. Bielefeld is eleventh and has nine points ahead of the relegation degradation place.
Union was in the beginning the more ambitious team and earned the lead. But then Bielefeld came into the match better. Neuhaus, who coached the Berliners from 2007 to 2014 and joined Arminia from December 2018, drove his team forward. After the tying run, Reinhold Yabo (81.) would have scored almost 2: 1.
Heidenheim and Fürth had a hard time
Heidenheim, who finished fourth with 39 points, found hardly a remedy against Fürth, who was very alert in the defense. Only in the 38th minute the guests got the first chance from Nikola Dovedan, but Fürth goalkeeper Sascha Burchert was on hand.
Also in the second half, both attacking rows were difficult to create opportunities. The Kenny Prince Redondo of Fürth just headed over the cross after a cross by Maximilian Wittek (66 & # 39;). A free kick by Heidenheimers Robert Andrich clarified Shamrock captain Marco Caligiuri before the finish (75.).
