Bundesliga: Leverkusen win away, Nurnburg crash

November 11, 2007

BERLIN, Nov 11 (Reuters) - German Cup winners Nurnberg conceded three late goals at Arminia Bielefeld in a 3-1 defeat on Sunday, the fifth straight loss for the club.

In Sunday's other Bundesliga match, Bayer Leverkusen rose one place to fifth with a 2-1 victory at VfL Wolfsburg.

Nurnberg dropped further into the relegation zone, five points from safety, thanks to a desolate second half in Bielefeld. It was their seventh match in a row without a win.

Andreas Wolf put Nurnberg in front two minutes before halftime, tapping into the left corner. Ruediger Kauf headed in the equaliser in the 64th before Poland's Artur Wichniarek scored the second in the 76th and South Africa's Sibusiso Zuma added the third in injury time.

In Wolfsburg, Switzerland's Tranquillo Barnetta tapped in a rebound off a Stefan Kiessling shot that goalkeeper Simon Jentzch failed to hold on to in the 37th minute before Kiessling got his fourth goal of the season in the 52nd.

Bayer defender Manuel Friedrich scored an own goal in the 70th minute.
