DSC Arminia Bielefeld 1-4 SC Freiburg

Goals: 0-1 Niederlechner (9'), 1-1 Nöthe (31'), 1-2 Grifo (39'), 1-3 Frantz (41'), 1-4 Niederlechner (78')

Needing a win to keep in touch with Bundesliga 2 leaders RB Leipzig, second-in-the-table Freiburg got off to a dream start when Florian Niederlechner slotted in the opening goal inside ten minutes.

Christoper Nöthe deservedly brought Bielefeld level, but quick-fire goals from Vincenzo Grifo and Mike Frantz towards the end of an action-packed first half set Freiburg back on course. Niederlechner's second of the evening put Die Breisgauer's third league win on the bounce beyond any doubt.
