Kaiserslautern - 1. FC Kaiserslautern’s hopes of moving into the top three suffered a setback on Matchday 11 as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Karlsruher SC.

The two-time Bundesliga champions dictated the early exchanges at the Fritz-Walter-Stadion, and their pressure took its toll as Jan Simunek volleyed in Karim Matmour's corner. Capitalising on a defensive error, however, Spanish midfielder Manuel Torres levelled matters just before the break. Kaiserslautern recovered well and re-gained the lead through substitute and local lad Manuel Orban just after the hour-mark, but the Red Devils were caught cold once again in the 74th minute when Koen van der Biezen slotted in Reinhold Yabo's pin-point cross to help the visitors register a point in the south-western clash.
