Kaiserslautern - 1. FC Kaiserslautern were held to a 1-1 draw at home to struggling VfL Bochum at the Fritz-Walter-Stadion.

After a scrappy opening period, Bochum took a deserved lead when Richard Sukuta-Pasu finished off an intricate move deep inside the penalty area for his 5th goal of the season. The visitors' advantage didn't last long, however, as Mohamadou Idrissou powered home on the stroke of half-time to equalise for Kaiserslautern. The hosts improved in the second half, but their hopes of finding a winner were hampered when Florian Dick was sent off for a second bookable offence. Bochum failed to capitalise with an extra man in the closing stages, but Peter Neururer's team will be delighted with a point against their fifth-placed opponents.
