After an action-packed opening 45 minutes, the home side were good value for their 3-1 lead at the break. Fürth created the better chances and Veton Berisha proved devastatingly effective. The Norwegian striker scored two goals either side of Sercan Sararer's equaliser before providing an assist for Marco Stiepermann just before half-time.
