1. FC Nürnberg 2-1 SC Freiburg

Top of the league coming into this one, Freiburg began well as Vincenzo Grifo tested Raphael Schäfer with a free kick. Nürnberg's Guido Burgstaller opened the scoring soon after, though, and could and perhaps should have added to his tally before the break.

The hosts hit back through Immanuel Höhn following a well-worked set piece, only to let Nürnberg back in barely a minute later, with Freiburg defender Jonas Föhrenbach inadvertently turning in Laszlo Sepsi's teasing cross.
