Fürth - SpVgg Greuther Fürth recorded a crushing 5-1 win over regional rivals 1. FC Nürnberg in the 257th Franconian derby on Monday.

The visitors got off to the worst possible start when Abdul Rahman Baba's speculative long-range strike slipped through the grasp of Raphael Schäfer to give Fürth the lead. The Clover Leaves had the opportunity to double their advantage when Alessandro Schöpf hauled down Baba in the box, with Goran Sukalo duly tucking away the resultant penalty. Nürnberg gave themselves a lifeline when captain Javier Pinola bundled in from close range, only to inadvertently gift Baba his second early in the second half. Fürth were flying and rounded out a delectable display in high style courtesy of further strikes from Tom Weilandt and substitute Robert Zulj.
