The Japan midfielder pulled one back for Der Club in the 44th minute to make it 2-1 after an earlier own-goal from Berkay Dabanli and a breathtaking first-time finish from Eljero Elia doubled the home side’s advantage.
Kiyotake then gave Nurnberg hope when he was well-placed to hammer a bouncing ball into the back of the net on the stroke of half-time.
Josip Drmic netted a leveller for the visitors early in the second half when he got on the end of Tomas Pekhart’s pinpoint rightwing delivery before Elia grabbed his second in the 66th minute with a fine volley from range.
Kiyotake’s goal was his second of the campaign while the assist was his first as Nurnberg sit 15th on the Bundesliga table.
