Frankfurt, Apr 21: Mainz and Wolfsburg drew 0-0 in an uneventful match in the Bundesliga on Friday, likely ruining Wolfsburg's hopes of playing in the Europa League.

Wolfsburg is three points away from a European spot, having played one more match than Bayer Leverkusen and Hannover.

Wolfsburg defender Alexander Madlung had a fierce free kick parried by goalkeeper Christian Wetklo in the second half, and teammate Mario Mandzukic narrowly missed the target with a tremendous volley from the edge of the box in the 88th minute.

Earlier, Greuther Fuerth won promotion to the Bundesliga for the first time after drawing 1-1 at FSV Frankfurt.

The second-division leader has 10 points more than Paderborn in third place with two rounds remaining. The top two teams advance directly, with Eintracht Frankfurt also likely to return to the top tier.

Fuerth won three national titles before World War II but failed to qualify for the Bundesliga when it was founded in 1963.

The club merged with Vestenbergsgreuth in 1996 to become Greuther Fuerth, gained promotion to the second division and narrowly missed reaching the Bundesliga several times in the past decade.
