FC Erzgebirge Aue moved closer to the promotion places with a 2-0 win against VfB Lübeck.

FC Erzgebirge Aue have moved closer to the promotion places in the third division. Three days after the unfortunate 1-0 defeat at SV Sandhausen, coach Pavel Dotchev's side secured a hard-fought 2-0 (1-0) win over VfB Lübeck at the end of the English week.

Aue's goalscorer Marcel Bär had put the hosts ahead after 14 minutes in front of 6219 spectators at the Erzgebirgsstadion on Saturday. Mirnes Pepic secured the win in the 90th minute with a converted penalty for the hosts, who were down to ten men from the 56th minute after Korbinian Burger was shown a red card for an emergency brake. After 23 matchdays, Aue are eighth with 34 points, six points behind the relegation places.

Aue quickly turned up the heat and were rewarded early on. After just 14 minutes, Bär squeezed the ball into the net for his tenth goal of the season. Driven on by the agile Kilian Jakob and Boris Tashchy, the hosts created chance after chance without scoring again.

Lübeck, on the other hand, pressed from the restart and also created chances. The red card for Burger helped the North Germans. However, the sending-off also saw the visitors' efforts to equalize wane. Instead, substitute Sean Seitz created danger and also took the penalty, which Pepic converted to make it 2-0.
