What a comeback! Dynamo is two goals behind and jumps to fourth place

By Thomas Nahrendorf

Dresden- One half as black as the pants, the other half as sunny yellow as the sweaters. With a performance explosion and attractive football in the second half Dynamo Dresden defeated VfL Osnabrück 3:2 in front of 21,763 spectators and jumps to fourth place.

Against VfL, SGD was 0:2 behind at halftime. Ahmet Arslan (53rd minute) with his sixth goal of the season, Paul Will (57th) and Claudio Kammerknecht (71st) with a dream goal with a heel turned the game around.

Dynamo coach Markus Anfang surprisingly changed his system. He switched back to a back four. That also meant he was more attacking and wanted to liven up the playful element by bringing in Patrick Weihrauch.

Besides Weihrauch, Max Kulke and Stefan Kutschke were also new. Kevin Ehlers, Dennis Borkowski and Manuel Schäffler had to sit on the bench in front of them.

Dresden initially took matters into their own hands and tried to build up pressure. But that was fruitless because there was a lack of speed and precision. The balls either had too much pressure or no pressure at all. That turned out again.

At best, half silver opportunities arose. There was no serious chance until the whistle of half-time.

Upon entering the cab, the dynamos heard a loud whistle as they acted uninspired not only in the front but also in the rear.

That was three minutes of bankruptcy, bad luck and bad luck: Michael Akoto headed a cross from the right back towards his keeper as usual.

Stefan Drljaca, however, slipped away and then dove in vain – 0:1 (36th). What money!

As if that wasn’t enough, Robert Tesche (39th) headed in moments later after a free kick by Florian Kleinhansl – 0:2!

At first, his elf did not change after the break tea. And that was the right decision. Loud words must have been spoken as the sports community returned to the lawn with a lot of fury in their stomachs.

Now that was the SGD as you want to see it. Aggressive, biting, willing and successful.

After a cross from Weihrauch to the far post, Arslan stood there and shoved in – 1:2 (53rd).

The home team followed. Kutschke hit the bar from close range. The Black and Yellows stayed in action, Arslan passed the ball to Paul Will, who gave a quick glance and read the ball under the roof – 2:2 (57th).

Now that the stadium was standing, the whistles were forgotten. Now there were ideas to be seen, playfulness. Everything that hadn’t been there for weeks now broke out. Dresden captured VfL.

The 3:2 was a painting, a work of art. Weihrauch got the ball after a corner and sent it to Michael Akoto. He crossed sharp and flat to the sixteen. Claudio Kammerknecht got the thing in with his hoe – 3:2 (71st). Game turned!

Dresden brought the score with heart and passion over time.
