Cottbus - 1. FC Union Berlin moved to the top of Bundesliga 2, but missed the chance to open up a three-point gap following a 0-0 draw at Energie Cottbus.

Benjamin Köhler went closest to breaking the deadlock in a tactical cat and mouse first half. The shackles were shaken off after the break, although it took the introduction of Boubacar Sanogo to really breathe any life into the game when he headed a corner wide five seconds after taking to the field. With 34 goals in Energie games so far this season, a 0-0 was the most unexpected result, but when Torsten Mattuschka hit the crossbar for Union late on, it became clear that the two sides could have played on and on, and a goal would not have arrived.
