SC Paderborn has preserved its chance of promotion to the Bundesliga. The East Westphalians won at Wehen Wiesbaden despite an early deficit. There was also a narrow away win in the spectacular top game between Kiel and St. Pauli.

Second division football team SC Paderborn 07 remains in the fight for the promotion places. The East Westphalia team celebrated a 2-1 (1-1) win at newly promoted SV Wehen Wiesbaden on Friday evening and reduced the gap to the relegation place to just one point before Saturday’s games. The goals for the away win for the SCP were scored by Koen Kostons (39th minute) and Filip Bilbija (82nd). Franko Kovacevic (30th) gave the SVWW a 1-0 lead in front of 6,119 spectators in the Brita Arena.

In a first half with only a few penalty area scenes, the guests had a little more of the game and had their first opportunity thanks to a free kick from Raphael Obermair, which goalkeeper Florian Stritzel directed onto the crossbar (9th). The Hessians surprisingly took the lead after half an hour through Kovacevic, who completed a counterattack after an opponent’s corner with a shot from a tight angle. Before the break, the SCP managed to equalize through Kostons, who ran freely towards Stritzel and fired into the bottom left corner from twelve meters.

But Bilbija scored in the final phase and completely turned around a game that was generally of a mediocre level.
