On Saturday, the Eintracht around coach Michael Schiele initially missed the early promotion through a 2: 3 (1: 2) at SV Meppen. For the Lauterer (63 points), who comfort three with relegation rank and now have to compete against the second division-third-last Dynamo Dresden, it was the last game of the season. Moritz Fritz (27th) and David Philipp (38th) met for the Rhinelander who secured relegation.
