Aue - Erzgebirge Aue recorded their first win since mid-October, trouncing ten-man Fortuna Düsseldorf 3-0 on Matchday 15.

Aue could not have asked for a more favourable start, with Guido Kocer making the most of a mistake in midfield and teeing up Michael Fink for the opening goal after 18 minutes. Fortuna’s afternoon went from bad to worse when goalkeeper Fabian Giefer received a straight red card following a foul on Fabian Muller, before Zlatko Janjic stepped up to dispatch the ensuing spot kick past substitute stopper Michael Rensing. Kocer got in on the scoring act seven minutes into the second half to take Aue out of the bottom three and narrowly ahead of 13th-place Fortuna on goal difference.
