Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nuebel saved a penalty in first half injury time and made more saves in the second half to deny the home side. Nuremberg stretched its unbeaten run to three games after its second consecutive draw against a relegation rival and moved three points behind Stuttgart, which holds the relegation playoff place ahead of the rest of the 29th round. Stuttgart hosts Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.
Schalke, which recently reappointed Huub Stevens for his third stint as coach, moved eight points above Stuttgart. The Gelsenkirchen-based club, runner-up last season, has only one win from its past 11 league games.
