2. Bundesliga: Braunschweig wins against Nuremberg

Tim Kleindienst shot 1. FC Heidenheim to the top of the league. The striker decided the chasing duel with Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday evening with his winning goal to make it 2-1 (1-0). At least until Saturday, the Heidenheimers will take the lead in the standings. Fortuna could have taken first place with a threesome. The defeat keeps coach Daniel Thioune’s team in fifth place.

In an intense game, Heidenheim took the lead through Adrian Beck (22′) before Dawid Kownacki made it 1-1 in the 59th minute. Düsseldorf put pressure on, but the goal came for Heidenheim through Kleindienst (87th). Kownacki missed the early lead for the guests after 15 minutes. Things went better for Beck on the other side. After a header from Kleindienst, he steered the ball over the line.

After the change of sides, the midfielder remained the most conspicuous Heidenheimer. But once he failed on the crossbar (56th) and only two minutes later Fortuna goalkeeper Florian Kastenmeier stood in the way of the 2-0. So Düsseldorf could continue to hope for a point – especially after Kownacki’s equalizer. Fortuna was more active in the final phase, but Kleindienst took advantage of one of the few chances and secured Heidenheim’s fourth win of the season.
