Winless Nurnberg continues to struggle
Mainz snatched a 1-1 draw at Nuremberg on Friday after an
equalizer from Shinji Okazaki denied the home side its first
Bundesliga victory of the season.
Park Joo-ho sent a long ball forward for Japan striker Okazaki
to shoot inside the far post in the 75th minute.
It was the visiting side’s first real chance of the second half,
with Nuremberg missing a host of opportunities to extend its lead
after Per Nilsson opened the scoring with a deflected header in the
Mainz strikers Nicolai Mueller and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting both
missed great chances to win it in the closing minutes, before
teammate Peter Sliskovic was sent off for a dangerous challenge in
Nuremberg remains second last before the rest of the 15th round
