Aalen - VfR Aalen stole a march on Fortuna Düsseldorf in Bundesliga 2 thanks to a Robert Lechleiter goal in a 1-0 win on Friday night.

Lechleiter struck midway through the first half, netting his fourth goal of the season against the run of play after the visitors had made a bright start. Although they still had over an hour left to find an equaliser, Fortuna were frustrated by Jasmin Fejzic in the Aalen goal. He made stops from Aristide Bance and Oliver Fink, among others, to preserve his side’s three points and take them three clear of Fortuna.
