Aue - Relegation-threatened FC Erzgebirge Aue pulled off a major shock on Monday night's Matchday 21 Bundesliga 2 curtain closer with a 1-0 win at home to promotion-chasing 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Jakub Sylvestr struck the decisive goal as early as the fifth minute, skilfully rounding visiting keeper Tobias Sippel after a swift attack on the break. Indeed, Aue's game plan was to soak up the Red Devils' pressure and counterattack at pace and they executed it to perfection, having many more clear-cut chances than their guests. Lautern poured forward in search of an equaliser in the second half but Aue defended doggedly and were able to cling to their lead until the final whistle.
