Oliver Petersch (born 26 April 1989 in Bitburg) is a German footballer who is currently a free agent.[1]


Petersch began his career at the reserve side of Bayer 04 Leverkusen, but couldn't break into the club's first team. He was loaned out to Rot-Weiß Oberhausen in 2009, where he established himself as a regular in the 2. Bundesliga. After his loan spell, Petersch did not return to Leverkusen, but transferred to Eintracht Braunschweig instead. After 14 games in his initial season with the team, he missed the entire first half of the 2012–13 season due to injury. He finally returned from injury on 2 February 2013 in a league game against SC Paderborn 07, in which he also scored his first goal for Braunschweig.[2] His contract in Braunschweig was not renewed after the 2012–13 season[3] and Petersch went on to join Arminia Bielefeld.[4] He was released by Bielefeld after one season with the club.
