Full report

In a relatively evenly contested affair, Julian Korb has the first sight of goal, but his effort from outside the box was blocked en route to goal.

Mahmoud Dahoud skied an eighth minute Gladbach effort well over the target before Marco Fabián was guilty of a similar miss after picking up a Branimir Hrgota pass.

Hrgota came as close to anyone in the first half with a 25th minute shot from the left of goal but he pulled his shot wide.

While both sides were looking threatening, they were halted on a number of occasions by the offside flag, ahead of another Fabián miss as the half wore on.

Yann Sommer did well at the start of the second half to deny Omar Mascarell, whose shot from outside the box was arrowing into the bottom left-corner of the net.

Clear-cut chances were few and far between before Lukas Hradecky saved well from Oscar Wendt on 72 minutes before he denied Lars Stindl who had latched on well to an André Hahn headed pass.

Try as they might, both sides were undone by their own profligacy in the final third, and ultimately had to settle for a point a piece.
