Bochum - Perennial Bundesliga 2 strugglers FC Erzgebirge Aue collected just their third away win of the season against fellow relegation candidates VfL Bochum with a 3-0 triumph on Friday evening.

First-half goals from Rene Klingbeil, Tobias Nickenig and Fabian Müller secured the victory for the visitors, who increased their lead over their 15th-placed hosts to five points. Bochum were lacklustre from start to finish and could slip into the bottom three this weekend depending on how the Matchday's remaining fixtures pan out.
