Düsseldorf - Charlison Benschop struck a brace to help Fortuna Düsseldorf see off plucky newcomers 1. FC Heidenheim 3-2 at the ESPRIT Arena.

Benschop bagged two predatory first-half goals - the first a tap-in from Axel Bellinghausen's cross, the second a lashed left-foot finish high into the net - either side of Florian Niederlechner's composed finish for the visitors. Chances continued to fall for both sides after the break and Niederlechner thought he'd secured his side a share of the spoils, only for 19-year-old Joel Pohjanpalo to head in a late winner for Oliver Reck's team.
