Karlsruher - Dimitrij Nazarov scored the only goal of the game as Karlsruher prevailed 1-0 on home soil over a toothless Aue outfit.

Karlsruher dominated from the early stages against their struggling guests as Rouwen Hennings, Manuel Torres and Nazarov all spurned chances in the opening period, with only Arvydas Novikovas able to muster any sort of resistance for the visitors. Despite the hosts' pressure, it took until the 74th-minute for the deadlock to be broken, Nazarov converting his penalty confidently after Michael Fink had handled in the box. Ilian Micanski should have doubled the margin of victory late on, but the hosts held on to stay in sixth place, while Aue remain in the relegation zone.
