Fortuna Düsseldorf has finally secured the relegation in the 2nd Bundesliga.
The team of coach Daniel Thioune prevailed 3-1 (2-0) at 1. FC Heidenheim on the 32nd matchday and can no longer slip into the relegation place with 41 points.
Jakub Piotrowski (20th), Felix Klaus (33rd) and Christoph Klarer (56.) scored the gates of the guests on Friday evening, who are still unbeaten under Thioune. The former HSV coach, who followed Christian Preusser in February, won five wins and six draws in eleven games.
Heidenheim, who had to do without the coach Frank Schmidt infected with Corona, had said goodbye to the promotion race before the end of the season. Maurice Malone’s interim connection (47th) remained without value. The team from Brenz is the table for two outstanding match days (46 points).
In front of 7778 spectators, the Fortuna showed a very serious appearance in the first section. The Rhinelander determined the game and suffocated the combination efforts of the hosts through a very compact positional game in the central midfield in the bud.
The tour of Piotrowski’s low shot was consequently. A little later, Klaus was successful with his first goal of the season, after Heidenheim goalkeeper Kevin Müller had not been able to hold onto the ball after a put-back from Kristoffer Peterson and had Klaus’ feet bounced off. Malone only made the game exciting for a short time immediately after the restart.
