After three winless games, SV Darmstadt has once again celebrated a sense of success and defended its lead in the standings on Matchday 25 of the 2nd Bundesliga. The Lilies defeated 1st FC Kaiserslautern safely with 2:0 (2:0) on Saturday evening. The Swiss-Serbian winter newcomer Filip Stojilkovic shone with two goals in the 36th and 43rd minute. In front of 17,650 spectators at the sold-out Böllenfalltor, FCK coach Dirk Schuster, who had once marched through from the 3rd to the 1st league with Darmstadt, experienced a bitter evening at his old place of work.
The Südhessen are now two points ahead of 1 FC Heidenheim and three ahead of Hamburger SV. FCK are already ten points behind HSV after the newly promoted team picked up only four points from the last six games.
The team of coach Torsten Lieberknecht was stormy as usual. FCK were unlucky at the first goal as Stojilkovic's header was faked by Hendrick Zuck. In addition, Marlon Ritter had headed just past the Darmstadt housing in the 24th minute. After a long pass from Phillip Tietz, Stojilkovic made it 2-0 shortly before the break. Tietz almost made it 3-0 immediately after the change. Nevertheless, the hosts no longer had to fear for victory against harmless Lauterer. Fabio Torsiello hit the post for the Lilies in injury time.
