Fürth - Greuther Fürth and VfL Bochum 1848 played out a goalless draw at the Trolli Arena on Tuesday evening.

The hosts spurned numerous chances to open the scoring in the first half, the best of which fell to Johannes Wurtz after just six minutes, but the striker failed to hit the target from point-blank range. Anthony Losilla could have punished Fürth for their profligacy moments before the break when he side footed the ball just past the post after a neat through ball from Stanislav Sestak.

Fürth keeper Wolfgang Hesl pulled off an outstanding save to deny Sestak after the break, before Stephan Schröck's effort was cleared off the line by VfL defender Patrick Fabian at the other end. Wurtz was thwarted again by Bochum custodian Michael Esser after 64 minutes as both sides were made to settle for a point apiece.
