Cologne - SC Paderborn 07 caused the upset of the weekend with a 1-0 away win against 1. FC Köln courtesy of Alban Meha's free-kick.

With the opportunity to extend their lead at the league summit to seven points, Köln began aggressively, but Paderborn held their own and tried their luck with pot-shots from distance. After a goalless first half, Meha's effort shortly after the break proved the difference between the teams. Köln staged a fightback and the visitors had keeper Lukas Kruse to thank for preserving their lead with two quickfire saves in the 59th minute. Try as they might in the closing stages, the Billy Goats couldn't find a way through, falling to their third defeat of the season.
