Often, the rating “important” in terms of significant league games is used inflationary. The encounter of MSV Duisburg against SV Darmstadt 98 last Friday had the character of a groundbreaking match but absolutely earned. Because in the struggle for relegation, the direct competition from Sandhausen and Magdeburg victories entered, the zebras threatened in the event of another defeat against the lilies not only a raven-black match day, but also the overall sixth league defeat in a row. Fortunately – from the perspective of coach Torsten Lieberknecht – this worst-case scenario could be avoided. Against the Hessen were a strong start phase and two goals after 25 minutes to get security. The 3: 0 after just under an hour meant the presumed preliminary decision, although the two late goals once again signaled that the relegation candidate of sovereignty or even defensive stability is far away. In the end, however, counted for the zebras, the three points, with the kicker of the Wedau still hang on the penultimate place.

In ten matches in front of their own fans, there were two wins and eight defeats. The nine goals scored and the 20 goals conceded that the blue and white striped in both categories are in front of home crowd in last place. A descent into the 3rd league would be a disaster for the further development of the former Bundesliga, which is why there is no need for two opinions, that the daily life of league enjoys the highest priority. So, although the actors take no opportunity to say that they want to get as far as possible in the cup, the question must be asked, whether subconsciously swimming with small doubts, the potential quarter-final in the German club as an additional burden, be it physically, but before all mental, attest. Although the aforementioned defeat series was stopped by the 3-2 win, yet the Meidericher SV always caught at least two goals in the recent six competitive matches.
