Board member Klaus Allofs said it very clearly at halftime: 12 points from the last 4 games – only then may there be something in terms of promotion. The first threesome has been in the bag since Monday …
Düsseldorf starts really badly against Karlsruhe (3: 2): After 9 minutes it’s already 0: 1. Because Danso hits his own goal …
But Fortuna shows morale, comes into play better and better. Karlsruhe Heise then fouls Klaus, penalty. Kownacki steps up and equalizes to 1: 1 (35.) After a wonderful Hennings heel trick, Borrello, who has just been substituted, even hits the 2: 1 (73.) game finally turned? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that…
As is so often the case this season: Fortuna doesn’t have her nerves under control: Kranjnc wipes Hofmann’s face in his own penalty area, Wanitzek converts the penalty to 2-2 (80th).
But Düsseldorf absolutely wants victory. Until the last second – and even longer!
In the 5th (!) Minute of stoppage time, Iyoha slams the ball against the crossbar, the ricochet pushes Appelkamp to a 3-2 victory over the line.
The goalscorer at Sky: “I can’t put it into words. It was extremely dramatic. We believed in ourselves and made a giant leap. “
After the 2: 2, Rösler folds his hands in prayer
Trainer Uwe Rösler (BILD rating 1) does EVERYTHING right against KSC:
► He leaves Chancentod Kownacki in the starting line-up – goal to make it 1-0.
► Change Borrello – goal to 2: 1.
► Bring Iyoha (template) and Appelkamp, who scores for a 3-2 win.
Clearly: The wobbly coach (not yet a contract for next season) is the match winner, looks for help from the top and prays with the 2-2 in the meantime.
Fortuna is suddenly level on points with the 3rd HSV – the fans can look forward to an insane season finale!
