Mainz forward Mohamed Zidan scored his third goal in three matches as Hoffenheim were held to a 1-1 draw in their Bundesliga clash on Friday night.

Both strikes came from visiting players, as Mainz's Macedonia defender Nikolce Noveski scored a ninth-minute own-goal to give the hosts an early lead.

Egypt striker Zidan spared his team-mate's blushes though when, 20 minutes later, he scored his third goal in as many matches since returning to the club from Borussia Dortmund.

Both sides lie in lower-mid-table, with 10th-placed Hoffenheim on 26 points and Mainz two places and points behind them.
