Aalen - Three second-half goals lifted VfR Aalen into the top half of Bundesliga 2, inflicting a third straight defeat on DSC Arminia Bielefeld with a 3-0 final scoreline.

Both sides started the game cautiously, with Christian Müller going closest to breaking the deadlock when his shot struck the outside of the post. Somebody needed to take a gamble to open the game up, and it was the home team who seized the initiative after the restart, Andreas Hofmann putting them in front before a towering Manuel Junglas header made it two. Robert Lechleiter added a late third to cap a fine individual performance and help lift Aalen to seventh.
