FSV Frankfurt threw a spanner in the works of 1860 Munich's recent revival with a 1-0 win at the Allianz Arena.
Things had been looking up for 1860 of late, with two wins and two draws in their last four games, and they oozed confidence early on with Fejsal Mulic and Rubin Okotie both going close to breaking the deadlock. Sertan Yegenoglu then gave the guests a leg-up into the game, fouling Besar Halimi inside the area to give away a penalty. Dani Schahin stepped up and converted with Vitus Eicher unable to keep the ball out with his fingertips.
22-year-old Nico Karger, who is 1860's reserve team leading scorer with ten goals, was sent on to beef up the Lions' attack for the final half an hour as they searched for an equaliser. Daniel Adlung struck an effort over the crossbar before Weis clutched a Maximilian Wittek free-kick to his chest, ensuring Frankfurt left the Bavarian capital with a narrow victory.
