FSV Frankfurt 1899 1-3 SC Freiburg

Goals: 0-1 Niederlechner (29'), 1-1 Haji Safi (55'), 1-2 Petersen (83'), 1-3 Petersen (pen., 86')

It was a sign of Freiburg's brimming confidence that Amir Abrashi tried his luck from 35 yards only to strike the crossbar in a dominant start to the game for the guests. Their pressure paid off in the 29th minute when Florian Niederlechner put them in front from a tight angle, but the post prevented Vincenzo Grifo from adding a second.

Ehsan Haji Safi stunned Freiburg with an equaliser from fully 50 yards, a stunning lob over Alexander Schwolow. It shook Freiburg, but they slowly regained their feet and, thanks to two goals from Nils Petersen, the second from the penalty spot, they took a deserved win away from Frankfurt to maintain a three-point advantage over third-placed 1. FC Nürnberg.
