Game goes down in history: Dynamo messes up promotion when relegated | Sports

The 1:4 defeat of Dynamo Dresden on May 22, 2023 in Meppen will go down in the history of German professional football.

It was the last Monday night league game. The last third division home game for the time being of the Meppener, who were already relegated before the game. And the probable knockout of Dynamo in the fight for promotion to the 2nd division.

“Never again, never again, 3rd league”, the 1,500 or so Dynamo fans who had traveled along sang in the 24th minute. Ahmet Arslan had scored the 1-0 lead with his 23rd goal of the season. After a foul on Jonathan Meier in the penalty area, he sunk the penalty kick that was due.

Everything went according to plan! But the people of Dresden were happy too soon.

After 33 minutes, Paul Will Dynamo’s midfield engine had to leave with knee problems. As a result, the game lost its structure.

What happened in the second half is difficult to put into words. The black and yellow could buy the cutting. Park saw a yellow card after a time game, then immediately after a foul yellow-red (68th).

What stupidity of the South Korean! Because the following free kick led to the 1:1 equalization (69th Soares). With a man down, Dynamo was rock solid.

The relegated team dismantled the black and yellow: 1: 2 Risch (78th), 1: 3 Fedl (82nd), 1: 4 Janssen (90th + 2)

A second half to forget! In 21 minutes Dynamo slipped from second to sixth place, also losing the better goal difference.

Trainer Markus Anfang on MagentaSport: “It hurts extremely after the great second half of the season. Now we don’t have it in our own hands anymore.”

After the defeat, Dynamo is only sixth in the 3rd division and has to hope for support from BVB II (playing near Osnabrück), Halle (playing near Wiesbaden) and Viktoria Köln (playing in Saarbrücken) on Saturday.
