Braunschweig - Eintracht Braunschweig recorded their first league win since early April with a 3-0 win over Bundesliga 2 newcomers 1. FC Heidenheim.

Heidenheim, winners on their second-tier debut against FSV Frankfurt last weekend, did well to stifle their more illustrious hosts for long periods of the first half, but the home side’s quality told when Havard Nielsen sidefooted home from a Ken Reichel cross. Reichel then added his name to the scoresheet with a powerful close-range finish after the break, and the defender sealed an impressive result with a stylish finish through the keeper’s legs with 18 minutes to play.
