Karlsruhe celebrated their second home win of the season in the second German Bundesliga. Thanks to increased performance in the second half, coach Christian Eichner’s side beat FC Erzgeberg Oe 2:1 (0:0), who were still without a win and slipped down the table under new duo Mark. Hensel and Karsten Muller.
After a weak first half, Karlsruhe appeared in front of 12,000 spectators and came with a goal from substitute Fabian Schleusner (46) and the fifth goal this season from first striker Philip Hoffmann (67) to the deserved victory. Baden initially advanced to fifth, three points behind the boarding zone. Aue could only shorten the final stages with a free kick from Anthony Parilla (83). KSC goalkeeper Marius Gerbeek had previously seen the red card after a foul (80).
Aue was initially the better team. The Saxons made space tight in midfield and created good scoring opportunities. But Nicholas Cohen failed to hit Gersbeek (16th), and Babakar Gaye hit the left side (18th). After the break, the picture was completely different: KSC came out of the cab with great momentum and found its way to the winning path with the fast-paced Schleusener 1-0.
