Nurnberg and Bayern Munich both let late opportunities for a winner go begging as they fought out a derby draw at Max-Morlock-Stadion.

Tim Leibold hit the post with a last-gasp penalty as Bayern Munich escaped with a dramatic 1-1 draw at Nurnberg on Sunday.

Alphonso Davies' errant elbow to the face of Georg Margreitter gifted full-back Leibold the chance to be the hero for the relegation-threatened hosts, but his spot-kick came back off the inside of the post.

Serge Gnabry had earlier struck in the 75th minute to cancel out Matheus Pereira's opener and, though they were let off the hook late on, Niko Kovac may well view the result as two points dropped following Dortmund's loss to Schalkeon Saturday.

David Alaba tested Christian Mathenia in the 22nd minute and the goalkeeper proved up to the task, tipping a fine free-kick onto the crossbar.

Sven Ulreich - again deputising for the injured Manuel Neuer - looked less convincing when forced to scramble Mats Hummels' mis-placed pass away from Mikael Ishak.

The deadlock remained intact at half-time after the referee deemed Ewerton to have legally challenged Joshua Kimmich in the Nurnberg box.

Match official Tobias Stieler delayed the restart in response to Bayern fans lighting flares, but Nurnberg made the breakthrough in the 48th minute.

Ulreich parried Eduard Lowen's tame initial effort only as far as winger Pereira, who curled a classy follow-up finish into the bottom left corner.

Bayern increased the tempo and, after the bar kept out a James Rodriguez free-kick, the visitors found a fortuitous equaliser, Robert Bauer's attempted clearance bouncing in off substitute Gnabry.

The woodwork ultimately proved an ally to Kovac's men as Leibold's failure to convert from 12 yards and Coman's subsequent inability to beat Mathenia when clean through on goal meant the points were shared.
