Schalke draws 0-0 at Augsburg to stay 5th in Bundesliga

BERLIN (AP) -- Augsburg and Schalke played out a goalless draw in the Bundesliga on Sunday as neither side could strike a decisive blow in their quest for Europa League qualification.

Schalke striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar had the best chance of the game in the 54th minute but shot straight at Marwin Hitz with only the goalkeeper to beat after Tranquillo Barnetta won the ball.

The Netherlands striker hasn't scored in 10 league games.

Raul Bobadilla and Caiuby came closest for Augsburg.

With seven games remaining, Schalke remained fifth, a point ahead of Augsburg in sixth, the last European qualification position. Hoffenheim was two points behind.

Hertha Berlin was hosting Paderborn for a Bundesliga relegation battle later.
