Hanover and Braunschweig had the first meeting in three years. In the derby of Lower Saxony, the H96 took the Braunschweiger apart – Regensburg could also convince.
In the derby of Lower Saxony between Hannover 96 and Eintracht Braunschweig emotions boiled high. First Braunschweig led with the first shot on goal by Martin Kobylanski (51st), then Hannover followed with lightning speed by Linton Maina (54th).
And from that moment on it was unstoppable. First Hendrik Weydandt scored the 2: 1 (71st), then Niklas Hult scored 3: 1 (74th) and Genki Haraguchi crowned the victory with the 4: 1 (86).
Regensburg with twice as much luck
SSV Jahn Regensburg also went well at home against KSC. First Andreas Albers made it 1-0 (44th), then a penalty kick for KSC was discussed for minutes, which was awarded.
But Philipp Hofmann did not take advantage of the opportunity, Regensburg goalkeeper Alexander Meyer stopped with a brilliant save (52nd). The Regensburg side were also lucky towards the end, as ten of them managed to defend the lead after Benedikt Gimber saw yellow-red (81st) through repeated foul play.
