Duisburg - 1. FC Kaiserslautern ensured the 2015/16 Bundesliga 2 campaign started with a bang thanks to a comprehensive 3-1 victory over promoted side MSV Duisburg in the season opener on Friday evening.
It did not take long for the visitors, who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Bundesliga last term, to take control of the match, with Kacper Przybylko breaking the deadlock after just 13 minutes following Mateusz Klich's clever pass. Things swiftly went from bad to worse for the hosts as defender Kevin Wolze put the ball into his own net five minutes later, and Przybylko then punished Duisburg's high backline by latching on to a long ball and finishing clinically into the bottom left corner.
Duisburg were better organised after the interval, but were still no match for a Red Devils side that never looked like relinquishing control of the game. Zebras captain Branimir Bajic did manage a consolation goal for the home team when he headed in Zlatko Janjic's corner in the closing stages but it was too little too late, allowing the visitors to deservedly take all three points back to Kaiserslautern.
