VfB Lübeck started the new year with the Mission Aufstieg and showed a performance that was quite respectable. The Lübeck team received the second representation of Holstein Kiel at the start of the second round. After the top scorer of the league, Ahmet Arslan twice (7th, 11th) showed what he is capable of, the Lübeck team put on a 3-0 lead even before the break by Morten Rudiger. Even though they lost Ryan Malone with a red card and from minute 61 on only 10 men were on the pitch, VfB were able to follow up with a 4-0 lead by Elsamed Ramaj shortly before the end. A well deserved victory and the best omens for next week, when they will face the Wolves in a direct championship duel.
