1. FC Heidenheim put an end to a six-game winless streak by handing TSV 1860 Munich a second-straight loss courtesy of a 3-1 victory at the Allianz Arena.
Ben Halloran put the visitors in front inside six minutes despite 1860 enjoying a positive start to proceedings. Conceding early unsettled the Lions initially, but they eventually found their feet and, minutes after Timo Beermann hit the woodwork, Ruben Okotie levelled the scores with a close-range header right on the stroke of half-time.
However, it was Heidenheim who demonstrated a greater sense of ambition after the restart and they duly took the lead when Robert Leipertz beat two defenders to put his side back in front. The hosts were forced to go in search of a point late on, but failed to produce a second equaliser before substitute Smail Morabit reacted fastest to Marc Schnatterer’s free-kick coming back off the bar to secure all three points for Heidenheim.
