1. FC Heidenheim 1846 1-1 SV Sandhausen
Following the end of their historic DFB Cup run in midweek, Heidenheim were focused on Bundesliga 2 duty and halting a run of four straight home defeats in the league. Things looked to be going according to plan, too, when Denis Thomalla headed them in front after 20 minutes.
It was a deserved half-time lead for the hosts, who looked to turn the screw in the second half. Sandhausen stemmed the tide, however, and started to probe themselves, getting the equaliser they were looking for just six minutes from the end with another headed goal, this one from Ranisav Jovanovic. The draw helps them keep a two-point advantage over their hosts, and move back above 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
