Paderborn - Just seven days after thrashing VfR Aalen 6-1 in front of home support, FSV Frankfurt 1899 found themselves on the receiving end of a 3-0 drubbing as SC Paderborn 07 put a dent in their promotion ambitions.

Alban Meha opened the scoring from the spot (21') and while Frankfurt weren't without their chances, the wind was taken out of their sails by Michael Görlitz's own goal (85') before Thomas Bertels wrapped up the win late on (90'). FSV could have moved within a point of 1. FC Kaiserslautern had they emerged victorious, but instead it was Paderborn who picked up their tenth win of the season.
