Munich - Eintracht Braunschweig became the first team in 15 years to win the first five games of the Bundesliga 2 season as a sole Dennis Kruppke goal was enough to take them four points clear at the top of the table. Meanwhile, Sandhausen and Dresden shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw.

Eintracht Braunschweig 1-0 SSV Jahn Regensburg


Regensburg were out to stop the runaway league leaders, and they made no secret of their plan to frustrate their hosts with a defensive masterclass. All too often, though, they had to rely on their experienced goalkeeper Michael Hofmann to keep them in the game, like in the 32nd minute when he pushed Norman Theuerkauf's volley away. Dennis Kruppke finally made the breakthrough in the 67th minute, meeting Kevin Kratz's corner at the near post to head in and write history as Braunschweig march on towards the Bundesliga.

SV Sandhausen 1-1 Dynamo Dresden


A tight first half was punctuated by one goal as Sandhausen managed to go into the break ahead. Frank Löning looped his header over Benjamin Kirsten from Kim Falkenberg's cross to put the home team in front in the 32nd minute, but there was little between the two sides otherwise. Dresden levelled early in the second half with Anthony Losilla carving out a chance all by himself, and providing the finis after exchanging passes with Robert Koch. Sandhausen had the better chances to win it, but had to settle for a point taking them onto six for the season, one more than their opponents.
