TSV 1860 München lost ground on the German 1. Bundesliga leaders as they were held to a 2-2 draw by 1. FC Nürnberg on Sunday.
Thomas Stehle gave visitors Nürnberg a 13th minute lead, but they missed a great chance to double their lead nine minutes later when Sasa Ciric was fouled by 1860 goalkeeper Simon Jentsch in the area and put the penalty in the net, only to be ordered to retake and shoot wide. Six minutes later 1860 made their opponents pay as Harald Cerny crossed for Benjamin Lauth to equalise.
Stehle scored again on 31 minutes to restore Nürnberg's advantage, but 18 minutes from time Lauth levelled for the second time to secure a point for 1860, who lie ninth, having had the chance to enter the top six with victory.
Juskowiak on hand
Second-bottom FC Energie Cottbus picked up their ninth point of the season with a 1-1 draw at Hamburger SV thanks to Andrzej Juskowiak's last-minute equaliser. Rodolfo Cardoso, who overcame a calf injury to play, gave Hamburg the lead two minutes after half-time, but with victory apparently sealed Juskowiak shot in after Moussa Latoundji's cross from the right.
