Fürth - Greuther Fürth dealt struggling FC Erzgebirge Aue to their sixth defeat of the season thanks to a 2-0 win in Bavaria.

The damage was done in the opening quarter of the game by the hosts' man of the moment Tom Weilandt. The attacking midfielder forced a powerful shot through the hands of Aue keeper Martin Männel for his first goal, and then cleverly lifted the ball over the keeper at the second attempt for his fifth goal of the season. Aue attempted a fightback and Frank Löning went close on two occasions in the second half, but the home side were able to see out a fourth victory of the season in relative comfort.
