Bochum - Fortuna Düsseldorf were held to a third straight draw under Lorenz-Günther Köstner by local rivals VfL Bochum, who edge to five points clear of the relegation zone.

Richard Sukuta-Pasu missed the best chance of the game as early as the fourth minute, not quite managing to lift his lob enough to take it over Fabian Giefer in the Düsseldorf goal. Giefer was tested repeatedly as Peter Neururer's men showed more intent to attack in front of 23,145 fans at the Rewirpower-Stadion.

Felix Bastians' effort just missed the target on the hour mark, but they were simply unable to find a way through, despite their efforts.
