Dynamo President Holger Scholze stated that it would be a challenging game before they faced Duisburg at home. However, Dynamo secured their eleventh unbeaten game in a row with a 2-0 victory over MSV in front of 21,904 spectators. Coach Markus Anfang altered his winning eleven from the previous game against Dortmund to two positions. Christian Conteh, who had recently been suspended, played on the right wing instead of Jakob Lemmer. Additionally, the ailing Robin Becker was replaced by Max Kulke at right-back.
In their previous game against Dortmund, Dynamo had already led 3-0 after just 17 minutes. However, this time around, Dynamo struggled against MSV in the first half and only began playing more rapidly after the break. Borkowski missed a great opportunity to score, failing to beat MSV keeper Müller while being completely free-standing in the 48th minute, and captain Kade hit the post in the 51st minute.
Finally, the deadlock was broken in the 66th minute as Kammerknecht headed in Arslan’s free kick to give Dynamo a 1-0 lead. Ironically, Kammerknecht received his fifth yellow card, rendering him unavailable for the following match against Ingolstadt. Kammerknecht’s fourth goal of the season was nearly a reparation for the stupid yellow card. The second goal for Dynamo arrived in the 76th minute after another set piece. Arslan lobbed a corner on Knipping’s head, gaining his first goal of the season, putting Dynamo down to the relegation spot for the first time this season.
