Frankfurt - A brace from Edmond Kapllani wasn't enough to prevent FSV Frankfurt slipping to a 3-2 defeat to Karlsruher SC on Matchday 2.

It was the visitors that took the lead on 11 minutes when Ilian Micanski tapped into an empty net, but former SCK striker Kapllani levelled things moments later. Micanski was not to be denied, however, and after firing in a second, the Bulgarian completed a first-half hat-trick with another smart finish. A Kapllani penalty on the stroke of half-time made for an entertaining second period, but the away side held on for the victory.
