Stuttgart dent Freiburg's top four ambitions

SC Freiburg succumbed 2-1 against VfB Stuttgart for the second time in a week as their UEFA Champions League hopes suffered a blow, while SpVgg Greuther Fürth enjoyed a rare victory.

SC Freiburg's UEFA Champions League push suffered a setback as the fifth-placed side slipped to a 2-1 defeat at VfB Stuttgart for the second time in five days.

Die Roten booked a place in the German Cup final at the expense of their derby rivals on Wednesday, and added insult to injury by preventing Christian Streich's men from moving above fourth-placed FC Schalke 04. On 33 minutes, Christian Gentner headed the hosts in front before Vedad Ibišević's neat finish doubled the advantage. Ivan Santini pulled one back late on, but that was as good as it got for Freiburg, who remain a point behind Schalke.

Meanwhile, bottom team SpVgg Greuther Fürth have not given up the ghost just yet as they ousted 1. FC Nürnberg 1-0. A defeat would have seen the visitors 12 points off FC Augsburg, who inhabit the relegation play-off spot, with four games remaining, but Johannes Geis fired into the top corner from 25 metres after 27 minutes.
