Fortuna Düsseldorf 1-1 1. FC Nürnberg

After Sercan Sararer had been brought down by Miso Brecko in the penalty area, Kerem Demirbay (33’) put the hosts in front from the spot.

Fortuna goalkeeper Michael Rensing made a clutch of saves to put in jeopardy the visitors' 11-game unbeaten run.

However, the ex-FC Bayern München man was finally beaten eight minutes from time by Niclas Füllkrug to leave Nürnberg three points adrift of the top two and two clear of in-form FC St. Pauli in fourth.

After three games under new coach Marco Kurz, Fortuna are now six points clear of the relegation play-off spot.
