WHAT AN INCREDIBLE FINISH!
Both sets of players are out on their feet on the pitch after that unbelievable finish. Silva thought he had won it with his rebound goal, but Bremen went right back up the other end and a mistake from Hasebe in his attempted tackle on Klaassen gave the away side the chance for a point. Rashica showed his courage to step up in that situation and earn his side a point. What a way for us to go into the international break.

PACIENCIA HEADS WIDE
Da Costa puts in yet another cross and Paciencia is on the end of it once again. This time, though, his header goes wide.
90' + 1'
He gives no chance to Rönnow with a superb spot-kick. Klaassen is trying to continue after the challenge from Hasebe, and Lang is trying to come on as a substitute but the ball is still in play.

RASHICA TO TAKE...
Can he earn Bremen a point?
INCREDIBLE! Rashica's shot is saved by Rönnow and Klaassen reaches the loose ball before Hasebe and he goes down under his challenge. A penalty for Bremen in added time.
HAS SILVA WON IT!?
It's another of those Frankfurt crosses which Bremen have not been able to deal with. It comes in from Toure towards Paciencia who heads at goal. Pavlenka is down to parry it away, but he can only put it in the direction of Silva who latches onto the loose ball and smashes it past the goalkeeper.
GOAL!2 : 1
RASHICA IS IN
Fantastic work from Bittencourt who skips past one defender before playing a ball through for Rashica. His tired legs can't take him away from the Frankfurt defence and he goes for an early shot, but Rönnow is able to make a simple save in the end.
FINAL 10 MINUTES
Frankfurt still enjoying most of the ball, crossing into the box from wide with Silva and Paciencia getting amongst the Bremen defenders. The away side still looking to counter, neither side able to make their plan work fully so far.
ATTEMPTS SO FAR
It's 19-7 to Frankfurt so far in terms of attempts on goal. An incredible number which shows how incredible it was that Bremen went ahead. Frankfurt have scored at least once in every Bundesliga game this season, while Bremen have conceded at least once in every game.
BREMEN LOOKING FOR COUNTERS
With the home side dominating possession, Bremen are looking at causing danger with counter-attacks. The speed and skill of Sargent, Rashica and Bittencourt in attack does make it a fun prospect. However, Frankfurt are keeping their chances of a counter to a minimum, as well.
DA COSTA ON THE RUN
The wing-back cuts inside onto his left foot and beats two Bremen defenders in the process. The ball is deflected behind for a corner, but the home side continue to pour on the pressure here.
IT HAD TO BE SOMETHING SPECIAL!
A corner curls into the box and is cleared only as far as Sebastian Rode on the edge of the box. He takes on touch and sends a fantastic shot into the far top corner giving a diving Pavlenka no chance. It was always going to take something spectacular for Frankfurt after all their missed chances, and that's what Rode provided.
GOAL!1 : 1
KAMADA FROM TWO YARDS!
Da Costa's cross is headed down towards the middle of the Bremen goal by Paciencia. Kamada is perfectly placed to meet it, but flicks the ball over the crossbar from two yards out. Another big chance for the home side which they just can't convert.
Paciencia was actually offside when played the ball and so a free-kick is given to Bremen.
Paciencia goes down in the box but no penalty is given. We'll go and have a look at it with VAR, though.
PACIENCIA SO SO CLOSE!
Fantastic header and an even better save from Pavlenka to deny him. Da Costa's cross was perfectly-placed for the Portuguese forward to head at goal, but he couldn't beat the Bremen No.1.
SECOND HALF BEGINS
No changes at the break as the second half gets underway at a wet Commerzbank-Arena. It hasn't stopped raining since kick-off.
SILVA DINKS OVER
Kostic's through ball, but Silva gets too much on his attempted chip. A frustrating first half for the home side with the number of chances they produced before going behind.
FRANKFURT STILL ON TOP
Despite going behind to that Klaassen goal it is the home side in the ascendancy. They are enjoying more of the ball and doing so in the Bremen half. The home support and those Frankfurt players will be hoping to draw level before half-time to make the most of their first half pressure.
KLAASSEN PUTS IT AWAY!
That ball really did not want to go in. Sargent broke away but his shot was saved by Rönnow. The ball came out to Bittencourt who hit the crossbar. He then collected his own rebound, touched the ball past a defender and shot, only to see it cleared off the line. The ball ran loose and Klaassen was first to it, finally hitting the back of the net despite Frankfurt's best efforts.
GOAL!0 : 1
SILVA HEADS AT GOAL
Kostic whips in a cross from the left which is headed at goal by Silva, but it bounces straight into the hands of Pavlenka. A goal could be on its way soon if Bremen can't do something about this onslaught of chances.
KAMADA HITS THE BAR!
Great football all-round there as Paciencia's lovely ball into the middle of the box finds Kamada, who clips the ball under Pavlenka, but it bounces off his body into the ground and then back up and onto the crossbar. Somehow it stays out with Frankfurt piling on the pressure.
Another cross into the box from Frankfurt, the 11th of the game already, and Silva's ball meets the head of Paciencia but loops onto the roof of the net rather than finding the back of it.
FINDING OUR FEET
Both sides enjoying short spells of possession so far. Eggestein's shot off the post is our only real chance on goal so far, while Kamada did also have a shot deflected behind the Bremen goal. Bittencourt and Rashica playing high up the pitch in support of Sargent and causing the Frankfurt defence some early problems.
EGGESTEIN SMASHES THE POST!
Huge chance for Bremen after great work from Bittencourt. He picks the pockets of Hinteregger in defence and cuts the ball back for Eggestein on the edge. He shoots at the near post leaving Rönnow stranded, but the ball bounces back out off the post.
KOSTIC WITH THE FIRST SHOT
A squint in the Serbian's eye as he brings the ball down from the sky with rain on it. He goes for goal with a left-footed strike from the edge of the box, but drags it just wide.
UNDERWAY IN FRANKFURT
The final game before the international break is underway in Frankfurt, the final Bundesliga game for just under two weeks. Let's hope it's a good one!
ANOTHER BUNDESLIGA RECORD FOR PIZA?
Having turned 41 during the week, Claudio Pizarro can become the Bundesliga's first-ever 41-year-old goalscorer with his next goal.
The Bremen defender is back and makes his first appearance of the season for Werder Bremen as a rare bit of good news for the away side today. Josh Sargent continues to lead the line with so many strikes out, while Davy Klaassen captains the side with Niklas Moisander still on the sidelines.
DOST RULED OUT
A loss for Frankfurt is that of Bas Dost, the Dutch striker missing due to muscular problems as per Frankfurt's Twitter. It's Andre Silva and Goncalo Paciencia up front instead.
