Aue - FC Erzgebirge Aue's winless run extended to seven games as a late equaliser for 1. FC Heidenheim meant the sides' Matchday 17 clash ended 1-1.

Knowing that a win was essential to ease their relegation fears, Aue began impressively in front of a partisan home crowd. Their early pressure was rewarded in the 14th minute when Fabian Müller netted to open the scoring. The lead infused Tomislav Stipic's side with more confidence, and they should have added to their lead later in the half through Romario Kortzorg and Arvydas Novikovas.

Heidenheim, on their own two-match winless run, improved after the break, with captain Marc Schnatterer particularly influential. However, it took until the 82nd minute for their enterprising football to bring the equaliser, with Marcel Titsch-Rivero on hand to crown a good personal performance and earn the visitors a point.
