Aalen - Friedhelm Funkel had to settle for a point in his first game as 1860 Munich head coach following an entertaining goalless draw at VfR Aalen.

Both sides set up with a view to attack in an end-to-end first half that saw Aalen's Robert Lechleiter come closest to breaking the deadlock. The hosts upped their possession count after the restart, but were unable to carve out any meaningful chances. They were almost made to pay for such an inefficient display, but 1860's Daniel Adlung sent his effort over with just the goalkeeper to beat.

Unbeaten in three, Aalen move up to eighth in the standings. 1860 are none-movers in sixth, with ten points from seven outings.
