For Paderborn, a streak of five consecutive victories ended in front of 10,400 spectators. Should more success have been achieved, third place in the table would have overtaken top duo FC St. Pauli and Jan Regensburg at the moment. Hannover’s Julian Burner saw the red card in the 67th minute due to the emergency brake.
SCP was still very lucky in the first half. Because Lower Saxony showed a very committed and convincing performance after six league matches without a win. The defect was again the exploitation of opportunities: Sebastian Kirk (17), Maximilian Pierre (29) and Sebastian Stolz (29) missed three good chances in the first half.
Paderborn improved a lot after the break. Now Denis Serbini alone in front of goal (58) and twice Julian Gustvan with a shot from the post (69/76) gave many great opportunities for the visitors. But 96 defended themselves against the looming defeat and hit the crossbar again with a header from Hendrik Widant (73).
