Freibug, Frankfurt share points in Bundesliga
Berlin: German football league Bundesliga sides Freiburg and Frankfurt shared points at the opener of the 23rd round following a goalless draw.
Frankfurt staged a better first half whereas Freiburg almost broke the deadlock at the second half Friday owing to the promising chances. From the kick off, the visitors from Frankfurt took the reins and were nearly rewarded with 12 minutes into the match but the score by Stefan Aigner was called offside, reports Xinhua.
The fast paced game by Frankfurt presented a problem for the hosts as Aigner had again a chance to open the scoring in the 16th minute. Nonetheless, Frankfurt were unable to convert their run on Freiburg`s goal into a tangible reward within the first half.
In the second half, Freiburg were able to free themselves from Frankfurt`s attacks as Jan Rosenthal approached the visitor`s goal dangerously with a header. A great save by Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp denied Freiburg a late winner as Max Kruse failed to overcome the keeper following a pass into path by Jonathan Schmid.
Substitute Johannes Flum also squandered the last chance to mark the winner when his header flew over the crossbar five minutes before the final whistle.
Both teams stay in their position; Frankfurt on fourth with 38 points and Freiburg on the fifth with 35.
