Heidenheim - Two goals in three minutes helped 1. FC Heidenheim to their second win of the season, a 3-1 triumph over 1. FC Union Berlin.

After a first half in which the two sides sized each other up, Union stepped up a gear at the start of the second half, prompting the hosts to do likewise. Twelve minutes in, they took the lead when Philip Heise set up Marc Schnatterer for a shot which took a deflection off Toni Leistner on its way in. Schnatterer then turned provider for Heidenheim's second less than three minutes later, his free-kick turned in from close range by Florian Niederlechner.

Niederlechner and Schnatterer both then hit the woodwork before Union found a route back into the game with Benjamin Köhler converting a penalty. Another spot-kick, this time for Heidenheim, could have settled the hosts' nerves, but Schnatterer struck his spot-kick wide. It did not matter, though, as Alper Bagceci supplied the third in stoppage time to seal victory and take Heidenheim up to seventh.
