BERLIN (AP) — Eintracht Frankfurt drew 0-0 at Freiburg on Friday to hold off the home side's challenge for the Bundesliga's last Champions League place.

"The draw was fair," Frankfurt coach Armin Veh said. "We didn't allow anything in the first half, Freiburg were better in the second."

Frankfurt's Stefan Aigner — who had a goal ruled out for offside early on — could only hit the side-netting after racing toward goal in the 17th minute.

Freiburg improved after the break and almost scored from a corner in the 64th, when Stefano Celozzi cleared Jan Rosenthal's header off the line. One minute later, he did it again, this time from Mattias Ginter.

"That's what I'm there for," Celozzi said.

Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp denied Max Kruse in the 76th, Johannes Flum headed over with five minutes remaining and then drew another save from Trapp.

"When we in Freiburg get so many chances in the first Bundesliga (division), then I'm happy," Freiburg coach Christian Streich said. "We can't always hope that we score the winner in the 80th minute."

Frankfurt remained fourth while Freiburg stayed three points behind ahead of the rest of the weekend's games.

Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich hosts Werder Bremen on Saturday, while defending champion Borussia Dortmund visits Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday.
