Leverkusen held to draw in Bundesliga

10 April 2022, North Rhine-Westphalia, Bochum: Soccer: Bundesliga, VfL Bochum - Bayer Leverkusen, Matchday 29, Vonovia Ruhrstadion: Leverkusen's Moussa Diaby sits on the pitch and demands a penalty kick.

Third-placed Bayer Leverkusen have been held to a 0-0 Bundesliga draw at Bochum after Moussa Diaby had a goal from the penalty spot ruled out because he slipped and touched the ball twice.

The point secured after the bizarre incident meant Leverkusen's grip on the third Champions League place was slightly weakened with five games to go.

RB Leipzig, in fourth, moved a point behind Leverkusen with an easy 3-0 home win over sixth-placed Hoffenheim.

Fifth-placed Freiburg are on their tails, now just four points behind Leverkusen.

Nils Petersen headed in a free-kick for a 2-1 win at mid-table Eintracht Frankfurt, who had one eye on Thursday's Europa League quarter-final second leg in Barcelona.

Christian Streich became Freiburg's most successful coach with his 105th Bundesliga win but was far from happy.

We had the necessary luck today, I didn't like some things we did. We have to play better in the last few games, he said.

The game was briefly held up early on when two environmental protesters tied themselves to each post of Frankfurt's goal.

Leaders Bayern beat Augsburg 1-0 on Saturday to edge closer to their 10th straight Bundesliga title.
