AACHEN, May 12 (Bundesliga) - Alemannia Aachen are as good as relegated from the German Bundesliga after Wolfsburg scored two late goals to snatch a draw that all but saves them from the drop.
A Matthias Lehmann penalty and a strike from Szilard Nemeth saw Aachen take a 2-0 lead.
However, in the last eight minutes Christopher Lamprecht and Diego Klimowicz hauled Wolfsburg level.
Aachen, like Mainz, trail fourth-bottom Wolfsburg by three points going into the last weekend of the season but the Wolves have a goal difference that is 14 better than their two pursuers.
Aachen started well and Lehmann fired an early shot over Simon Jentzsch's goal.
Sascha Rosler headed over with another good Aachen attack and then Jentzsch was twice called into action to deny the forward.
It was goalless at the break and Aachen continued to chase the game in the second half.
Once more Rosler was foiled when Jentzsch fielded his weak shot, while at the other end Marcus Hesse saved a header from Alexander Madlung who had connected with a Jacek Krzynowek corner.
Aachen took the lead when Madlung's shot struck the hand of Facundo Quiroga. Lehmann made the penalty pay for the hosts.
Three minutes later Nemeth made it 2-0 at the second bite of the cherry after Jentzsch had made a save from his first attempt.
But the good mood quickly evaporated as the Wolves pounced with their two late goals.
Substitute Lamprecht began the comeback when he scored from the edge of the box.
Lamprecht had a hand in the equaliser as he released the fleet-footed Klimowicz, who outpaced marker Moses Sichone before beating Hesse to level the scores.
Aachen came agonisingly close to a winner in stoppage time when Rosler's shot went through a forest of legs but was saved by Jentszch.
