Nuremberg stunned Borussia Moenchengladbach with a late goal to claim a 1-0 win and deny the visitors the chance to move second in the Bundesliga on Sunday.
Albert Bunjaku scored the winner three minutes from time _ and three minutes after coming on as a substitute _ when Alexander Esswein pulled the ball back for the Swiss striker to crash a shot under the crossbar.
Philipp Wollscheid instigated the move by dispossessing Moenchengladbach midfielder Juan Arango and sending Esswein through on the left.
Moenchengladbach's attacking threat was largely nullified by Nuremberg's tightly packed defense, with Marco Reus, Mike Hanke and Arango all enduring a frustrating afternoon.
Hoffenheim was scheduled to host Cologne later Sunday.
