Emir Spahic opened the scoring with Leverkusen's first shot on target in the 16th, only for Marvin Plattenhardt to equalize eight minutes later with a direct free kick from 25 meters (yards).

Omer Toprak set up Sebastian Boenisch for Leverkusen's second in the 48th and Heung-min Son ran the length of the pitch after a Nuremberg corner for Spahic to seal the win with 10 minutes remaining.

There was still time for Roberto Hilbert to add another in the 87th.
