Kiezkicker fans were in party mood ahead of Sunday’s match at the Millerntor-Stadion. They have been out of the Bundesliga since 2011, but a point at their home ground would secure a long-awaited return. Fabian Hürzeler’s side started the match well, thanks to a goal in the seventh minute by Dapo Afolayan, and they went in at half-time 1-0 up.
