FRANKFURT, Germany -- Hiroshi Kiyotake scored the opening goal and drew a foul that led to the winner as Nuremberg beat Augsburg 2-1 in the Bundesliga on Friday.

The Japan midfielder curled a left-foot shot inside the far post in the 21st minute after a good pass from Alexander Esswein.

Augsburg equalized in the 36th when Tobias Werner headed a cross and Nuremberg goalkeeper Raphael Schaefer caught the ball before dropping it and letting it trickle through his legs, and across the line.

Esswein scored Nuremberg's winner in the 54th minute after Kiyotake was brought down at the edge of the box. Esswein drilled his free kick through the wall after one of his teammates moved to create a gap.

Nuremberg moved 10 points above the relegation playoff spot, occupied by Augsburg.
