In one of the surprises of the last round, Oldenburg won away from home against the best home team Mannheim by 1-3. After Hallescher’s win over Rot-Weiss Essen, they absolutely need to beat Zwickau to maintain theoretical hopes of staying ahead of the final round. After seven years in the 3. Liga, Zwickau returns to the Regionalliga. The oxymoron of the case is that its relegation was „sealed” mathematically in the 0-1 home defeat by Dynamo Dresden, a team with which they maintain excellent relations. The image they had in that match is reflective of the current season. They are completely out of shape with 5 defeats in the last 7 games (1-1-5) and have some absences like Göbel (32/1), König (21/1), Kruger(13/1), and Kusič (12/0). Oldenburg is in fine form with only 1 defeat in the last 5 rounds and this is simply a must-win match for them.
