The theme for Sunday’s games in the German was stalemate after all the matches played ended in a stalemate.
TSG Hoffenheim started the new league season very well and that form took them to second place behind leaders Borussia Dortmund but that is in the past now following their recent wobbles. That continued on Sunday as they played out a 1-1 draw at VFL Wolfsburg.
Turkish-born Germany midfielder Kerem Demirbay gave Hoffenheim the lead from the spot with 13 minutes remaining as Wolfsburg star Maximiliano Arnold paid the price for an earlier penalty miss in the first half but his blushes were spared by a last gasp equaliser from Felix Uduokhai
In the other games on Sunday, bottom club FC Cologne played out a goalless draw at home to Werder Bremen while the clash between Freiburg and visitors Hertha Berlin ended in a 1-1 draw.
