Kaiserslautern - Alexander Ring's third goal of the season gave 1.FC Kaiserslautern a 1-0 win over 1. FC Union Berlin on Matchday 7.

Kaiserslautern striker Srdjan Lakic spurned the first chance of note early on, with Hamburger SV loanee Kerem Demirbay fairing no better in the 21st minute. The hosts got their breakthrough before the half was up, though, as Ring smashed home an unstoppable effort following good play out wide by Karim Matmour.

The Red Devils never looked like letting the points slip from thereon in, although Philipp Hoffman should have given the scoreline a more comfortable look late on, only to blaze over with the goal at his mercy.
