Berlin - Promotion hopefuls 1. FC Union Berlin and SC Paderborn 07 played out a keenly-contested 1-1 draw on Friday night.

Süleyman Koc passed up two promising openings, with Paderborn team-mate Marvin Bakalorz faring no better ten minutes before the end of an open first half. Union belatedly awoke from their slumber after the restart as Sören Brandy directed Torsten Mattuschka's cross into the net, but the third-placed visitors refused to lay down and deservedly levelled matters through Uwe Hünemeier with a minute of normal time left on the clock.
