Although Jan-Nicklas Beste started to grow into the half, it was Bochum’s talisman Stoeger who blasted one final effort over Kevin Muller’s crossbar before the break.
Bochum started stronger after the break with Osterhage’s shot on 53 minutes being repelled by Muller. As the hour mark approached Kleindienst would be denied by Riemann. Muller was called into action once again by Bochum’s marauding full-back Bernardo.
Coach Schmidt looked to his bench for the final ten minutes as he introduced Pieringer and Pick. Kleindienst had a final opportunity to take all three points when Erhan Masovic coughed up possession. However, the striker fired over the bar which ensured the points would be shared.
