High-flying Nürnberg got off to the perfect start, taking the lead with barely three minutes on the clock thanks to Sebastian Kerk. After missing several decent opportunities to extend their lead, the visitors were pinned back just before half-time as Karslruhe broke quickly to equalise through Jonas Meffert. The second half belonged to the home side and Markus Kauczinski's men were rewarded for their adventurous play late on when Manuel Torres scored a deserved winner.
