Nuremberg draws 0-0 with Augsburg in Bundesliga


BERLIN (AP) -Nuremberg ended its four-game losing streak in the Bundesliga with a 0-0 draw at home to Augsburg on Sunday.

Augsburg came closest to scoring in a hard-fought game of little quality, and the final whistle was greeted by whistles from the Nuremberg fans, who have not seen their side win at home since April.

"At least we stopped the bad run somewhat," said Nuremberg goalkeeper Raphael Schaefer, who went off at the interval with an Achilles problem. "Of course it wasn't a good game. You can see how insecure the team is at the moment."

Knowledge Musona had the game's first shot on target in the 30th minute, straight at Schaefer, and Nuremberg defender Hanno Balitsch had a half-chance at the other end but failed to connect properly with the ball before the break.

Substitute `keeper Patrick Rakovsky almost gifted Augsburg the opener by failing to claim a corner, with Aristide Bance, Thomas Oehrl and then Ragnar Klavan all having attempts blocked before he finally gathered it.

Rakovsky then denied Bance in the 67th.

"If you score goals you can also win such a game," said Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl. "So (at least) we can be happy we took the point."

Hamburger SV was scheduled to host Stuttgart later Sunday.
