Karlsruhe - Karlsruher SC tore 1. FC Nürnberg apart to move up to third in Bundesliga 2 thanks to a 3-0 win at the Wildparkstadion.

The match was over as a contest within the space of 40 minutes. Japanese forward Hiroki Yamada gave the hosts the lead from close range in the ninth minute from Ilijan Micanski's pull back. Raphael Schäfer pushed a Manuel Torres header onto the post moments later, but he was then beaten by Reinhold Yabo's low shot into the bottom corner. Karlsruher were denied time and time again by the visiting goalkeeper before Yabo found a way through when Yamada's shot came back to him off the post, and he made no mistake five minutes before half-time with his second and Karlsruher's third, with Koen van der Biezen missing a late penalty.
