Munich - 1. FC Köln continue to progress up the table after edging a 2-1 win at Paderborn, while promoted Jahn Regensburg and VfR Aalen both extend their successful starts to the season with 3-0 wins against St. Pauli and FSV Frankfurt respectively. The Bundesliga 2 action on Friday.

Jahn Regensburg 3-0 FC St. Pauli


In their first game under Thomas Meggle and Timo Schultz following the dismissal of head coach Andre Schubert, St. Pauli found themselves on the back foot from the off in Regensburg. However, it took the home side a while to find a way through the deep-lying visitors, until Francky Sembolo clinically dispatched the ball from close range to break the deadlock on 25 minutes. Jim-Patrick Müller failed to get the better of Pauli keeper Philipp Tschauner at the half-hour-mark, but he did better just before half-time when he easily converted into an unguarded goal.

Florian Bruns could have scored St. Pauli's first just after the break, but his deflected went over the bar. The guests were thn caught on the counterattack as they threw bodies forward after the break when Sembolo finished off a through-ball from Jonathan Kotzke to score his fourth goal of the season. Mahir Saglik's beautiful free-kick (65') was St. Pauli's only good effort in the last half hour as he forced a good save from Michael Hofmann.

SC Paderborn 1-2 1. FC Köln


Following on from their first win of the season in last week's 2-1 success against FSV Frankfurt, Köln started impressively and found the back of the net after 18 minutes when Anthony Ujah headed in a Miso Brecko cross from the edge of the six yard box. Adam Matuschyk's skilful free-kick (31') only landed on the crossbar but the visitors were lucky when Tobias Kempe shot just wide from long range.

Manuel Zeitz did better eight minutes into the second half as he nodded in Deniz Naki's cross to restore parity, however the visitors responded well with substitute Adil Chihi firing home an open goal after Thomas Bröker's good run. Zeitz's sending-off ten minutes from time helped Köln control the game in the final stages when they managed to keep the ball away from their goal and Matuschyk should have done better than hitting the crossbar on a counterattack near the finish.

VfR Aalen 3-0 FSV Frankfurt


Unsurprisingly given their good starts to the season, both Aaalen and FSV Frankfurt started confidently, even though clear chances were at a premium until Martin Dausch beautifully lobbed the ball over the visitor's goalkeeper Patric Klandt to make it 1-0 in the 19th minute. Sascha Traut could have doubled the lead at the half-hour mark, but couldn't find a way past Klandt with his free-kick.

Aalen upped the pressure after the interval and got their reward on 52 minutes when Andreas Hofmann swerved the ball into the left-hand corner of the net. Edmon Kapllani could have got Frankfurt off the mark, but Jasmin Fejzic did well to keep his free-kick out in the 74th minute. 15 minutes later, Enrico Valentino eventually decided the encounter when he easily converted from close range.
