In Augsburg's 300th Bundesliga game, the hosts secured a valuable point that kept them 12th on 31 points but Paderborn, who hit the woodwork, remained anchored in last place on 19 despite a strong first half.

They are now without a win in their last nine league games.

The Bundesliga restarted 10 days ago after a break of more than two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with games played without supporters to reduce the risk of infection.

Augsburg coach Heiko Herrlich was making his home debut in the club's 300th Bundesliga game and his team secured a valuable point that kept them 12th on 31 points, four above the relegation playoff spot with six games left in the season.

"We wanted to continue where we left off after our win over Schalke 044 but for that we had to play better than we did and be more efficient with our chances," said Augsburg captain Daniel Baier. "But we will take the point."

Paderborn are without a win in their last nine league games, they are eight points behind the playoff spot and are quickly running out of chances to stay up.
