Balogun Gains Promotion With SV Darmstadt

Balogun Gains Promotion With SV Darmstadt

By Johnny Edward:

Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun’s SV Darmstadt 98 have secured a return to the Bundesliga, 34 years after they were relegated.

SV Darmstadt were on the verge of being relegated to the Bundesliga 3 in 2013, only to win the playoffs against Arminia Bielefeld a year later and thus qualify for the 2. Bundesliga.

They defeated St Pauli 1-0 on Sunday to seal one of the two automatic promotion spots.

The Lilies could have sealed the promotion last week, but fell away to Greuther Fürth, losing 1-0.

Balogun played 22 times for Darmstadt and scored four times during the campaign.

They finished on 59 points, five points adrift of winners Ingolstadt on 64.
