BERLIN, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Nuremberg made it maximum points from two games in the Bundesliga as an early diving header from Markus Schroth proved enough to give them a 1-0 win at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach on Friday.
Schroth hurled himself in front of the covering defender to butt the ball past Kasey Keller in the fifth minute, after Glauber had headed on a free kick from Jan Kristiansen.
Nuremberg were joint league leaders after the opening weekend, when they won 3-0 away to VfB Stuttgart, and they looked in the mood for a similar result as they tore at the Gladbach defence in the opening period.
The visitors were struggling to get into the game but they almost grabbed an equaliser from nothing in the 14th minute, when Oliver Neuville controlled a long pass forward and lifted the ball past the keeper and just over the bar.
Gladbach had one more good chance, in the 50th minute, when Oliver Kirch smacked in a shot from the edge of the area.
Werder Bremen, last season's runners-up, are at home to Bayer Leverkusen in the pick of six games on Saturday.
Bayern Munich, double-winners again last season, will aim to join Nuremberg on six points by winning away to Bochum on Sunday.
