Heidenheim - 1. FC Nürnberg fell to their third straight defeat after losing 3-0 at promoted 1. FC Heidenheim 1846 on Wednesday.

The game was barely three minutes old when Marc Schnatterer struck to give the home side the lead. Kevin Kraus swiftly made it two thanks in no small part to some abject Nürnberg defending, with Patrick Mayer opening his account for the season from the spot after visiting goalkeeper Raphael Schäfer was adjudged to have brought down Florian Niederlechner on the hour mark. Nürnberg offered little in response as Heidenheim saw out their third win of the campaign with minimum fuss.
