Dennis Srbeny and Robert Skov both marked early goals as Hoffenheim and Paderborn spread their winless streaks at the Benteler-Arena with an amusing draw.
As Pavel Kaderabek hopped past Jamilu Collins on the right and squared for Robert Skov to glide into the net ‘s roof, Hoffenheim blazed all the guns and scored instantly.
The mishit of the Bosnian swirled nicely into Dennis Srbeny ‘s route, who wasn’t even touched before twirling in a 25-yard equalizer, but their good early work was then incomplete by a mistake from center-back Bicakcic.
Paderborn: Zingerle – Dräger (Jans 81′), Hünemeier (c), Schonlau, Collins – Vasiliadis (Jastrzembski 82′), Gjasula, Antwi-Adjei – Pröger (Sabiri 81′), Srbeny (Zolinski 76′), Holtmann (Mamba 65′)
Hoffenheim: Baumann – Posch, Bicakcic, Hübner (c) – Kaderabek, Grillitsch, Rudy (Geiger 76′), Zuber (Dabbur 63′), Baumgartner – Skov, Bebou (Beier 76′)
In Freiburg on Sunday Leonardo Bittencourt gave them a 1-0 win, the game’s only goal. Werder Bremen finished a seven-game winless streak to pick up just their fifth season win.
The deadlock break was inevitable and it was the visitors who put their noses in front as Leonardo Bittencourt fired past Schwolow after being released from the sweeping of Davy Klassen through the ball caught a cold of the Freiburg defence.
Freiburg: Schwolow – Schmid, Gulde, Koch, Günter (c) – Sallai (Kwon, 81′), Haberer (Abrashi, 71′), Höfler, Grifo – Höler – Petersen
Bremen: Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander (c), Friedl (Lang, 82′) – M. Eggestein, Vogt (Bargrede, 35′), Klaassen – Bittencourt (Bartels, 63′), Sargent (Osako, 63′), Rashica (Selke, 82′)
