Karlsruhe - Karlsruher SC had to settle for a point against VfR Aalen at the Wildparkstadion on Sunday.

Dimitrij Nazarov gave the hosts the lead on eight minutes when he volleyed home Philipp Klingmann's cross, but Aalen equalised through Robert Lechleiter five minutes before half-time.

KSC struggled to break down a stubborn Aalen rearguard in the second half, but nearly regained the lead through Koen van der Biezen with a quarter of an hour remaining. His shot was well held by Jasmin Fejzic, however, and Marcus Kauczinski's promoted side were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
