BERLIN -- Schalke missed the chance to go provisionally third in the Bundesliga on Friday after being held to a 0-0 draw by visiting Mainz.

Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann produced a fine reflex save to deny Shinji Okazaki's volley in the 29th minute, in a first half of few real chances.

Jefferson Farfan came closest at the other end before the break, when the Peruvian combined well with Max Meyer before his shot was deflected just wide of the far post.

Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler came on with 25 minutes remaining to make his comeback from an ankle injury sustained on Dec. 11.

The home side could have overtaken bitter rival Borussia Dortmund but remains fourth, while Mainz remains provisionally seventh before the rest of the 22nd round of games.
