Aue - SC Paderborn remain on course for an historic first ever promotion to the Bundesliga after beating FC Erzgebirge Aue 2-0 on Matchday 33.

After failing with his speciality, a free-kick, Alban Meha took full advantage of a slip by Fabian Müller to curl his shot beyond Martin Männel from wide left. Aue put up a brave fight, but they were not quite as committed as Mario Vrancic was in the 66th minute as he burst through, dribbled his way inside past three defenders before picking his spot in the far corner to seal Paderborn's win.

Paderborn must now beat VfR Aalen in their final match of the season to secure promotion, although matching Greuther Fürth's result would also be enough for Andre Breitenreiter's men to go up automatically.
