GK: Raphael Schafer

Nuremberg captain Raphael Schafer was imperious against Hamburg on Sunday, but still ended up on the losing side.

Schafer made 11 saves and didn't lose a single aerial duel during a Bundesliga relegation blockbuster yesterday, but was powerless to stop Hamburg gaining a vital 2-1 win in a frenetic match that featured three goals in the last 10 minutes.

The Bundesliga strugglers are now just a single point off the bottom three, but on this evidence the 35-year-old will have little trouble finding a new club next season if the team's performances, and more importantly results, do not improve.
