Aalen - VfR Aalen came from behind twice to grab a 2-2 draw at home to Karlsruher SC.

Karlsruher raced in front with Rouwen Hennings sending an unstoppable shot past Daniel Bernhardt after only a minute, and it took Aalen until early in the second half to find a response, which they provided from the penalty spot when Reinhold Yabo fouled Andreas Ludwig inside the area. Jürgen Gjasula sent Dirk Orlishausen the wrong way from the spot.

Ilijan Micanski restored Karlsruher's lead with the easiest of finishes after a fine team move, but Aalen's reply was a lot quicker this time, coming within two minutes, as Gjasula swept in his second of the game. The point does little for either side, with Aalen still inside the relegation zone and Karlsruher losing ground on the top three.
