Berlin - SpVgg Greuther Fürth picked up their first away win of the season against 1. FC Union Berlin courtesy of Kacper Przybylko's early goal.

Yet to pick up three points on their travels all season, Fürth threw caution, and with it the form book, to the wind. Within three minutes, Przybylko had put Frank Kramer’s men in front with a clever header, and they defended with a confidence which belied their recent poor displays. Hosts Union enjoyed the better of the few first-half chances through Toni Leitner, but the guests never looked unduly ruffled.

In an effort to begin the second period as they had the first, Fürth piled forward with Union's defence standing firm. Once the visitors’ early pressure had worn off, the hosts began to create chances of their own, with Maximilian Thiel coming to the fore. Sebastian Polter came close to an equaliser, but Fürth took control of the last ten minutes, as Sören Brandy saw red, to take their first three points on the road all season.
