Darmstadt - Ten-man SV Darmstadt 98 held Karlsruher SC to a goalless draw on Friday night.

The contest came to life in the second half following a tense opening 45 when Darmstadt's Leon Balogun's throw found Milan Ivana, who flashed wide on the turn from just six yards. Jerome Gondorf picked up his second booking of the night as the hosts were reduced to ten men with 16 minutes still to play, but Karlsruher were unable to make their numerical advantage count, thanks in no small part to two fine saves from Darmstadt goalkeeper Christian Mathenia.
