Challengers keep up pressure on Freiburg
With league-leaders Freiburg II not playing, there was an opportunity for their nearest rivals to keep up the pressure and close the gap with just nine games remaining.
Offenbach hammer Stadtallendorf
Offenbach did not waste the chance and hammered hapless Stadtallendorf 4-0 with all the goals coming in the second half.
David Tuma broke the deadlock in the first minute of the second half, before Mathias Fetsch notched his 15th of the season eight minutes later. Flo Bojaj and Tunay Deniz added a goal each to complete the rout.
Der gestrige 4:0-Heimsieg war ein erfolgreicher Abschluss der englischen Woche – und gleichzeitig auch der Auftakt in die nächste. Schon am Mittwoch tritt der OFC im #Hessenpokal-Viertelfinale in Alzenau an. 🔴⚪️#OFCTSVE: ✅#FCBOFC: 🔜#kultsindwir #nurderOFC pic.twitter.com/TlDu3pVrly
