That was nothing! In the first game after the separation of 96-coach Mirko Slomka defeated the 1. FC Heidenheim the "Reds" with 4: 0 (1: 0). Heidenheim's Tim Kleindienst at the beginning of the two halves (2nd / 49th minute), Marc Schnatterer with a converted penalty (53rd) and Sebastian Griesbeck (70th) made for the goals in front of 11 100 spectators in the Voith Arena. Hannover's Marcel Franke saw the red card because of an emergency brake before the penalty.
Heidenheim shocks 96 early
Heidenheim shocked the guests with the early leadership by Kleindienst and other very good opportunities right after. The changed to five positions Lower Saxony survived the initial phase with luck without further conceding goal and had even with a post shot by Miiko Albornoz in the 26th minute their first own good offensive action.
Until the break, Hannover was able to break free and make the game increasingly open. However, the team did not recover from a double strike by Kleindienst's fourth goal of the season and Schnatterer's penalty goal. The 1. FC Heidenheim has won after two games without victory and has climbed to fourth place in the 2nd Bundesliga.
