There are still a lot of Regionalliga West clubs I have to visit so I picked the game between Rot-Weiß Oberhausen and Westfalia Rhynern. The visitors just got promoted from the Oberliga for the first time in their history while the home team even played in the Bundesliga for 4 years a few decades ago.

Westfalia Rhynern might have expected another start as the home team got in front after just 1 minute; 1-0. They didn't seem to be upset at all as they instantly scored the equalizer, 1-1. But only 15 minutes later another goal made it 2-1, which was one of the last things to remember from this game.

RW Oberhausen has a great ground, but it took me 40 minutes to get in as they had problems with printing tickets.. I also forgot about the renovations on the ground which means I will return when it's all finished.
