Nuremberg - Fortuna Düsseldorf made it two wins on the spin after beating 1. FC Nürnberg 2-0 on Monday night.

Fortuna started the brighter and took a 23d-minute lead thanks to a clever bit of play from Julian Schauerte, who nutmegged Dave Bulthuis en route to teeing up Erwin Hoffer for his third goal in two games. The visitors double their lead in the 62nd minute through Sergio da Silva Pinto, before Michael Liendl went close to making it three on the break. Nürnberg drop to tenth as a result, with Düsseldorf moving up to seventh and to within three points of the promotion places.
