1. FC Nürnberg 1-2 MSV Duisburg

Goals: 0-1 Wolze (35'), 0-2 Bohl (60'), 1-2 Leibold (62')

Kevin Wolze's deflected effort gave the visitors the lead in front of a 40,000-strong crowd in Franconia, before Duisburg skipper Steffen Bohl doubled their advantage on the hour mark. Tim Leibold's speculative effort reduced the arrears just two minutes later, but the hosts' hopes of a comeback all but ended when the 22-year-old was dismissed for a second bookable offence a minute from time.

Nürnberg, who remain three points behind second-placed RB Leipzig, ended the match with nine men after Dave Bulthuis was shown a straight red card in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Duisburg, meanwhile, move to within three points of the relegation play-off place following their first away win of the season.
