STINDL HAT-TRICK AT THE DEATH!
Thuram's cross finds Stindl in the middle who rises to head at goal. Trapp makes a big save among a host of bodies, but the ball bounces back to Stindl who puts it home at the second time of asking! WOW! What a way to end this game. Stindl completes his hat-trick to earn Gladbach a late, great point.
The away side holding onto possession here in added time but can't find a way through the Frankfurt defence with all 10 outfield players staying deep in their own half.
We're now into six minutes of added time at the end of this game.
It's a second for Stindl, who just squeezes his penalty past Trapp who got his hands on it.
The Foals have a chance to get a goal back here with Barkok bringing down Embolo.
Frankfurt's players pressing across the pitch now, chasing the ball down everywhere to give Gladbach no time to breathe in possession.
CHANCE NOW FOR GLADBACH
Nothing has worked for the Foals today but now they have a man advantage, Rose will want his side to race forward now for the final 10 minutes or so.
Embolo was brought down by Rode and Abraham, and reacted badly by pushing over Rode. The pair are booked as well as Abraham, who is therefore given his marching orders.
ABRAHAM SENT OFF!
The Frankfurt captain is shown a second yellow card for bringing down Embolo on a counter-attack and the home side are down to 10 men for the final 10 minutes.
NOT FAR AWAY!
Barkok steps up on the free-kick and it's headed for goal, but Embolo deflects it away with a smart header.
Video-Assist overturns the penalty decision with Kohr brought down just outside the Gladbach penalty area.
Kohr is brought down by Zakaria to give Frankfurt a second spot-kick. This will be checked as it is on the edge of the box.
ReviewOutside Penalty Area?
STRUGGLES FOR BOTH SIDES
Neither Frankfurt nor Gladbach have been able to get their attacking play in flow in this second half. Defences winning the evening, but Frankfurt won't mind that at all.
An immediate yellow card for Kohr with his challenge on Kramer.
Younes comes off with a limp after being slightly hurt in a challenge as Kohr comes on. A defensive move for Frankfurt from Hütter.
CHANCES AT ONE END
GLADBACH JUST HOPEFUL
The away side are sending long balls forward, attempting to go more direct. It means they're not playing their usual way and so far it's not working for them. Frankfurt's three-man backline is handling it well with Rode and Sow dominating the midfield in front of them, too.
Hinteregger's superb direct pass forward is well-controlled by Silva, who touches the ball across the penalty area to Younes in space. He rushes his shot as he goes to find the top corner with a curler and this one goes wide of the mark.
Plea is sacrificed here just after the hour and Embolo is on in his place. Marco Rose looking to get his side back into this one before it's too late.

CHANCE FOR SILVA!
The two-goal Frankfurt forward is charging into the Gladbach box from the left after Hinteregger's challenge sends the ball his way. He's right in front of Sommer before going to shoot, but Ginter is back just in time to make the block.
THE EAGLES ARE FLYING
Plea is played in behind the Frankfurt defence and rounds Trapp before shooting at goal. It's on target but Durm has made a lung-bursting run back to clear the ball just in front of his own goal. In the end, the offside flag is raised, but Durm did so well to get back and make sure it was no goal.
The Foals are looking to play the way we know them for under Marco Rose. Quick build-up play to start counter-attacks through Thuram and Plea up front. Frankfurt have defender superbly, though, and with a two-goal lead, can afford to sit back a touch and soak up some pressure if needed.
The Frankfurt captain heads a cross clear and Plea clatters into him at the back post as he made his attempt to meet the ball. He's taking treatment now but should be able to continue.
Two half-time changes for Gladbach with Zakaria and Lazaro on for Benes and Wolf.
We'll have three minutes of time added on at the end of this first half.
Frankfurt cut open Gladbach again with Kostic played in on the left side of the Gladbach penalty area. He takes his time before searching for Silva in front of goal but Sommer reads it well and gathers the cross.
ON THE FRONT FOOT
Frankfurt have scored three goals in 10 minutes here and are piling on the pressure on Gladbach. The Foals are still finding space on the counter, but in the last 10 minutes they have rarely had a chance to get any going.
BOTH SIDES CLINICAL SO FAR!
An incredible stat here is that Andre Silva has had only five touches of the ball in this first half. He's scored two and set up another already.
CLASH OF HEADS
Thuram and Hinteregger clash heads as they go for a free-kick into the Frankfurt box. Thuram looks okay, but Hinteregger is worse for wear here and taking treatment.
WHAT A GOAL FROM BARKOK!
That's a special way to score from Barkok with Frankfurt on fire. Silva unselfishly lays the ball off to Barkok in the Frankfurt area and he skips inside past Elvedi before rolling the ball away from Ginter and duly slotting his shot home past Sommer. What a turn around here from the Eagles!
NOT FAR AWAY!
Gladbach break with Plea played down the right and his first-time cross is superbly touched behind by Abraham with Thuram behind him waiting to smash it home.
WHAT A START!
The midweek madness is well underway here in Frankfurt. Three goals in the opening 25 minutes and Frankfurt have responded superbly after going behind. Let's see what Gladbach can do now...
STUNNING FROM SILVA!
Two in two minutes for the Portugal international and he has turned this game around single-handedly. Barkok spots Silva's run with a lovely ball over the Gladbach defence and Silva brings it down with a fantastic first touch ahead of him. He then finishes low under Sommer across goal to put Frankfurt ahead!
SILVA SPOT ON!
That's eight for the season and 10 in his last 15 for club and country for Silva. He slots the penalty past Sommer, sending the Swiss shot-stopper the wrong way to level the scores in this first half.
Lainer is booked for handball after blocking Hinteregger's shot and Frankfurt have a penalty.
Kostic is in acres of space down the left wing as he charges up the pitch. Silva is screaming for the ball in the middle but Kostic takes his time to get the delivery in, and Elvedi makes a crucial block in the end.

BARKOK HIGH AND WIDE
A first half-chance at goal for Frankfurt as a loose ball runs to Barkok 25 yards from goal. He sends a shot intended for goal but it curls high and wide past Sommer.
What a strike from the captain to put Gladbach ahead! The free-kick that follows from Hasebe taking down Benes is smashed at goal by Stindl. It curls around the wall and Trapp can't reach it before it beats him into the top corner. Fantastic from Stindl!
The Frankfurt centre-back brings down Benes on a counter and that's the first yellow card of the game.
BACK UP NOW
The Germany international is up and ready to continue here.
The Frankfurt goalkeeper took a knock to the head there from Hinteregger as the centre-back blocked Plea's run. He's taking treatment now.
Strong defending from Martin Hinteregger prevents Plea from getting on the end of Thuram's pass into the Frankfurt box. Gladbach enjoying the open feel to this game so far, getting Thuram, Embolo and Plea involved early.
A TOUCH OF CLASS!
A big, big chance which perhaps falls to the wrong man. Thuram controls the ball on the edge of the Frankfurt box and plays a beautiful backheel right into the path of Ginter. He forces his way into the Frankfurt penalty area and goes for goal, but drags his effort wide. Another forward would surely have done better with that one.
KRAMER HAS A POP
Benes' free-kick is cleared out of the Frankfurt box as far as Kramer. He's 35 yards from goal but his shot is well-blocked as Gladbach make a bright start here.
AWAY WE GO!
Gladbach get the game underway here in Frankfurt.
TALE OF THE TAPE
Tonight's game is a meeting of 8th and 9th in the table heading into the "Englische Woche" as it is known as in Germany. But despite being only one place above Frankfurt, Gladbach do have a four-point advantage over their hosts this evening. A win could take Gladbach above Dortmund into fifth before they and others play later on.
HASEBE BACK FOR EINTRACHT
Frankfurt's former club captain starts a game for the first time since Matchday 7 with Adi Hütter rotating his squad slightly. Hasebe - the oldest player in the Bundesliga at 36 - played every minute of the first seven games of the season.

FRANKFURT TEAM NEWS
Silva missed Friday's 2-1 defeat to Wolfsburg, but is back to start once again in Germany's financial capital. Dost drops to the bench despite marking his return to the starting line-up against former club Wolfsburg with his fourth goal of the season. Ilsanker was preferred to Barkok in midfield, but the latter did make it off the bench and starts in an attacking role. There was also a late cameo for Napoli loanee Younes starts with Kamada on the bench. A minor injury had put Durm's run in the side at right-wing-back in doubt, but he's safe to start with Da Costa waiting on the bench as the Eagles seek to end a run of seven matches without a win.
GLADBACH TEAM NEWS
Regular skipper Stindl, Plea and Thuram started the Hertha stalemate on the bench following their exertions during the Foals' successful UEFA Champions League group campaign, and all three are recalled in Frankfurt. Right-back Lainer is also back in, but an accumulation of yellow cards rules out midfielder Neuhaus. Sommer is back fit, too, leaving Sippel on the bench while winger Hofmann is out.
