Tomas Pekhart cancels out Artjoms Rudņevs's goal to earn Nuremberg a 1-1 draw against Hamburg at home in the Bundesliga.
Nuremberg and Hamburg have played out a 1-1 draw with each other in the Bundesliga.
After a barren first half in which chances were few and far between, the game at Stadion Nurnberg kicked into life after the hour mark.
Marcell Jansen came close for Hamburg with a shot from close range, before Rafael van der Vaart saw his attempt on goal blocked.
The visitors' pressure paid off in the 70th minute when Artjoms Rudnevs headed home Dennis Aogo's cross from just yards out.
Tomas Pekhart almost replied immediately for Nuremberg with a shot from outside the box, but saw his effort saved by Rene Adler.
Adler could not deny Pekhart in the 75th minute as he turned home Timo Gebhart's cross from close range.
Son Heung-Min went close twice for Hamburg in quick succession, but on both occasions he was denied by Nuremberg goalkeeper Raphael Schafer.
The South Korean was unlucky not to bag his side all three points in the final minute of normal time when his header from Dennis Diekmeier's cross came off the post.
Result: Schalke's title hopes in tatters >
