Kaiserslautern - SC Paderborn 07 proved unwelcome guests for 1. FC Kaiserslautern, inflicting a late 1-0 win to hand the Red-Devils their second home defeat in succession.

Still chasing promotion, but wounded after their shock home defeat to Fortuna Düsseldorf on Matchday 17, Kaiserslautern came out aggressively with Karim Matmour and Mohamadou Idrissou leading the first-half attacks. Matmour missed an excellent opportunity to open the scoring before the break, and Idrissou hit the post with a header.

Paderborn began the second-half on the back foot but grew into the game ever more, Alban Meha had a chance from long-range just moments before Johannes Wurtz capitalised on a defensive error in the 73rd minute to grab all three points. The result leaves the Red-Devils in third, but lifts the visitors to the heady heights of seventh.
