Düsseldorf - 1. FC Nürnberg boosted their promotion ambitions with a 3-1 victory away to fellow Bundesliga hopefuls Fortuna Düsseldorf.

All goals came in the final quarter of the match, with Finnish striker Joel Pohjanpalo putting Fortuna 1-0 ahead with a deflected effort after 67 minutes. The hosts fell behind just ten minutes later, however, as Niklas Stark notched his first of the season to bring Rene Weiler's charges level before Danny Blum's first of the campaign made it 2-1 to the Franconian outfit. Former SC Freiburg man Sebastian Kerk sealed the points two minutes from time to lift Nürnberg above Düsseldorf in the Bundesliga 2 table.
