Aalen - VfR Aalen hauled themselves out of the relegation zone with a hard-fought 2-0 win over TSV 1860 Munich on Matchday 9.

Defences were on top for long spells in the game, with Aalen marginally the better side but lacking spark in their approach play. It wasn’t until the final stages that the game sprang to life, as the hosts found space to launch a swift, counter-attacking move, finished off from close range by Fabian Weis. Following 82 minutes of frustration, the shackles had been lifted from the home side and Arne Feick sealed the points with a crisply struck half-volley with four minutes remaining.
