Karlsruher SC 0-0 SC Paderborn 07

For the sixth time in seven games since the turn of the year, Stefan Effenberg's Paderborn were unable to pierce their opponents’ rearguard, but stoic defending – and a touch of fortune as Boubacar Barry hit a post seven minutes from time – ensured them a potentially valuable point.

Paderborn are now two points behind TSV 1860 Munich, who occupy the relegation play-off place, and are five points adrift of 15th-placed Fortuna Düsseldorf.
