Injury-hit Bayer Leverkusen missed the chance to go second in the Bundesliga when they were held to an uninspired goalless draw by visiting Hertha Berlin.
Leverkusen looked listless after playing on Thursday in the Europa League as they attempted to extend their run of five domestic victories without attacking options Lucas Alario (knee injury), Karim Bellarabi (thigh) and Nadiem Amiri (illness).
Leverkusen almost nicked the three points when Lars Bender sent an injury-time header just wide but otherwise failed to create a clear chance.
Coach Peter Bosz was already without another half a dozen players and named only six - including two goalkeepers - of nine possible substitutes.
Hertha were resolute defensively but themselves rarely looked capable of claiming just a third league win this season.
Leverkusen did leapfrog Borussia Dortmund, who were shocked 2-1 at home by struggling Cologne on Saturday, by moving into third.
Leaders Bayern Munich came from behind to win 3-1 at VfB Stuttgart on Saturday.
