Cottbus - Having won two of their last three league games, another FC Energie Cottbus victory, at home to free-falling VfR Aalen, would have confirmed the hosts as bonafide promotion contenders. However, the 1-1 draw on Monday evening has dampened their hopes somewhat.

Michael Schulze put Cottbus in front in the second half, but their lead was curtailed within seconds as Manuel Junglas replied at the other end. Aalen remain winless in 2013 and have collected just five points since the turn of the year, although they still sit comfortably in mid-table.
