Aalen – VfR Aalen produced a dominant display to seal a comfortable 3-0 home win over 1. FC Union Berlin.

Tim Kister began the scoring for the hosts after just two minutes, heading in unchallenged from a left-wing cross, before Japanese striker Takuma Abe doubled their lead before the break with a well-placed strike. Union struggled to create any chances of note in the second half and the tireless Robert Lechleiter finished them off, out-pacing the defence to round the keeper for 3-0 and an impressive win.
