Nuremberg - Jakub Sylvestr scored the only goal of the game against his former club as 1. FC Nürnberg beat FC Erzgebirge Aue 1-0 at the Grundig Stadion.

Der Club, who were relegated from the Bundesliga last season, dominated the first half and should have taken the lead just before the half-hour mark, but Robert Koch somehow slid Tobias Pachonik's cross wide of the target. Tomas Pekhart did have the ball in the net ten minutes later, but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Nürnberg continued to pressurise the visitors after the break and finally made the breakthrough with just over twenty minutes remaining when Borussia Mönchengladbach loanee Peniel Mlapa played through Sylvestr, who calmly finished into the bottom corner to secure all three points for the Bavarians.
