Second German League: Dusseldorf returns to third place by defeating Braunschweig 2-0

Dusseldorf – Fortuna Düsseldorf can still hope to return to the Football Supreme Council. With a 2-0 (1-0) win over Eintracht Braunschweig, Daniel Theune's side regained third place, which they lost the day before, and now sit one point ahead of chasers Hamburger SV in the second division table. In front of 52,000 spectators at the Merkur Spiel Arena, Felix Klaus (42nd minute) and Christos Tzoulis (55th minute hand penalty) secured Fortuna's deserved victory on Sunday. On the other hand, guests still have to worry about staying in class. After their sixteenth defeat this season, the team returned to the danger zone, occupying third place from last.

In the third match at the “Fortuna for All” project with free entry for fans, the Düsseldorf team seemed to have recovered well from the knockout in the cup in Leverkusen (0:4) and controlled the match from the beginning. This was rewarded before half-time with Klaus' strike from a central position to put the team ahead 1-0. Even after the resumption of play, the hosts remained in control of the course of the game. A handball from Florian Krüger in the Braunschweig penalty area paved the way for an early decision. Tzoulis, on loan from Norwich City, converted the penalty with confidence. The 2-0 lead was in danger only once in a one-sided game for so long, when Braunschweig's Youssef Amin (84') hit the post.
