However, the visiting Nurnberg responded with two goals, courtesy of Kanji Okunuki and Benjamin Goller, establishing a 1-2 lead at halftime.
The 64th minute saw the Nigerian grab his second goal of the match, leveling the score at 2-2.
This parity endured until the end of regulation time, thanks to Ujah’s exceptional performance, salvaging a crucial point for the home team.
