Paderborn - SC Paderborn and FC Erzgebirge Aue remain locked in mid-table after playing out an end-to-end 1-1 draw on Matchday 16.

Aue’s Martin Männel was the busier of the two goalkeepers during a tight-knit first half, but he could do nothing to prevent Paderborn taking a 32nd-minute lead, with Jens Wemmer’s speculative drive taking a wicked deflection off Zlatko Janjic on its way into the net. Mahir Saglik almost made it two after the restart, but the spirited Violets kept plugging away and got their reward when substitute Arvydas Novikovas smashed home a 78th-minute free kick to rescue a well-deserved point for an Aue side now unbeaten in their last three.
