With both teams fighting to ease out of the bottom half of the table, DSC Arminia Bielefeld pulled off a late comeback to beat Karlsruher SC.

Bielefeld 2-1 Karlsruhe

After a blistering opening five minutes from both teams, it was Karlsruhe who looked the more likely to score, creating several half-chances in the opening phase of the game. Dimitris Diamantakos nearly scored at the far post after his team were gifted an early corner, but was more successful in the 19th minute, striking the ball into the left-hand corner from inside the area. The lead gave Karlsruhe the confidence to dominate the game.

The trend continued into the second half with several good chances going begging for Karlsruhe after the break. In the 66th minute, Karlsruhe's Enrico Valentini received a second yellow card for a foul on Fabian Klos, and Bielefeld were back. They took advantage of their extra man, Christopher Nöthe bundling in an equaliser in the 77th minute. Seven minutes later, Bielefeld had turned the game on its head, as David Ulm put them 2-1 ahead to clinch the three points.
