Duisburg - Neither side were able to break the deadlock at the MSV-Arena as 1. FC Nürnberg were held to a goalless draw by promoted side MSV Duisburg.

MSV Duisburg 0-0 1. FC Nürnberg

Nürnberg started the game brightly and had an early chance as Hanno Behrens' header flew goalwards, only to be easily saved. A handful of other headed chances and long-range efforts were about as much as the first half had to offer, with Duisburg playing on the counter-attack and both sides looking disorganised.

The visitors sharpened up towards the end of the game, and Stefan Kutschke had two chances to score the winner in the last ten minutes. Duisburg held on to win a valuable point, though it will take more than draws to help them clamber out of the relegation zone.
