In the 55th minute, Kapp was the last man in front of his own penalty area to foul Aziz Bouhaddouz after losing the ball to it shortly before. Referee Franz Bokop had then drawn the red card because of the emergency brake – much to the displeasure of the guests, where the already substituted Christoph Menz had seen yellow-red because of too loud protests on the bench.
Now the DFB sports court has imposed a two-game ban on Kapp for unsportsmanlike conduct. The player and club have already agreed to the ruling. The game ended 0: 1 from Berlin’s point of view.
Kapp, who was trained at TSG Hoffenheim and joined the then fourth division Viktoria Berlin in 2018 after a year with French FC Sochaux, played in all 15 third division games from the start of this season (kicker rating 3.5). The 24-year-old central defender scored two goals.
