Aalen - SG Dynamo Dresden's survival hopes were dealt another blow as a 3-0 defeat away to VfR Aalen left the eastern German outfit's fate out of their hands heading into the final round of fixtures.

A Tim Kister header set the hosts on their way in the first half before Robert Lechleiter doubled the deficit with 11 minutes remaining. Filip Trojan made matters worse for the visitors late on when he was sent off for bringing down Lechleiter in the box, giving Aalen's Leanrdo Grech the chance to complete the scoring from the spot and leave Dresden needing an eight-goal swing in their final-day battle with FC Erzgebirge Aue, ahead of them in 15th on goal difference, to beat the drop.
