The Niedersachsen lost in Heidenheim with 0: 4 (0: 1). A double by Tim Kleindienst (3rd minute, 49th minute), Marc Schnatterer's (53rd, penalty) and Sebastian Griesbeck's (70th) goal were too much for 96, which weakened even before the third goal : Marcel Franke saw the red card after an emergency brake after 51 minutes. Heidenheim is fourth due to the success.
The hosts shocked Hannover with the early leadership by Kleindienst and other very good opportunities right after. The five-changed Lower Saxony survived the early stages with luck without further conceding goal and had even with a post shot by Miiko Albornoz in the 26th minute their first good offensive action.
