BERLIN, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Freiburg's Pavel Krmas ensured a late win for his side over Dusseldorf while Augsburg secured a draw over ten men Mainz to close the 21st round of Bundesliga on Sunday.
From kick off newly promoted Dusseldorf handed over control to Freiburg. Thus with 17 minutes into the match Freiburg's Jonas Schmid rattled the right post before Jan Rosenthal equally came close to break the deadlock.
As the match progressed Freiburg maintained the control of the match unable to turn their dominance into a tangible reward.
With beginning of the second half Freiburg's actions fell off whereas Dusseldorf wasted a golden opportunity through Oliver Fink who had all time and space to slot home from 15 meters at the 75th minute.
Also Andreas Lambertz was incapable to score from nine meters at the inside right, minutes later. Dusseldorf was punished with three minutes left as Pavel Krmas headed home a Max Kruse corner to wrap up three points.
The win move Freiburg from 7th to 5th position with 31 points whereas Dusseldorf stay on 15th position with 24 points, eight points away from drop zone.
Elsewhere, Augsburg and Mainz shared points following a 1-1 draw.
Mainz opened the scoring through Adam Szalai who capitalized on a cross by Junior Diaz three minutes before the break. It was a short-lived joy by Mainz as they were reduced to ten men, as Shawn Parker was red carded for a rude foul play to Michael Parkhurst.
After the break Mainz defended deep to kill the clock but their strategy didn't work out as Augsburg's Sascha Moelders headed home the leveller at the 57th minute.
Mainz drop from 5th to 6th position with 31 points whilst Augsburg stay in drop zone with 15 points out of 21 rounds.
