On the 30th day Eintracht Braunschweig was very difficult at 1860 Munich, but could finally celebrate a 1: 0 victory in the Allianz Arena by a goal from Christoffer Nyman. In the home match against the direct competitor Union Berlin, there was a deserved 3-1 home win with Ken Reichel (2) and Domi Kumbela for the decisive hits ensured. On the penultimate match day, Braunschweig had to go to Arminia Bielefeld and the team of coach Lieberknecht unexpectedly showed an indiscutable performance and fell 6: 0 completely nasty under the wheels.
