NOT OVER

They might need two goals but Freiburg have by no means thrown in the towel. Instead, they're throwing everything they have into attack for the final few minutes.

Another crucial clearance off the line by Frankfurt, this time to deny Günter's drive across goal after the ball had bounced across from the right.

WHY WE LOVE FOOTBALL

You can look at all the stats and think Freiburg should be running away with this, but football isn't always about sheer numbers. Frankfurt have been clinical at one end and solid at the other. Freiburg have just found no way through.

JUST NOT STICKING FOR FREIBURG

xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).

WIDE FROM HÖLER

Chances still coming from Freiburg. An interception does end up falling to the striker thanks to Eggestein, but he bends wide from 18 yards.

Pass Efficiency
Pass Efficiency compares the number of successful passes with the number of passes expected to find another teammate. For this, every pass receives an AI-calculated probability to be a successful one. If a player has a positive Pass Efficiency value, he has brought more passes to his teammates than predicted.
The Frankfurt midfielder has completed over 90 per cent of his passes, including 100 per cent of his difficult passes. The majority of them have been played forwards as well.

NOW KAMADA

You can get a sore neck trying to keep up with this end-to-end play. Up the other side, Kamada has a shot across goal from the right. Only inches wide.

GRIFO!

And now Freiburg again, this time even closer as Grifo sees a volley cleared off the line by Tuta, with Trapp well beaten.

FLEKKEN KEEPS IT AT TWO

Now it's Frankfurt's turn again as Lindström drives one from 18 yards. Flekken has clear sight of it and can fling himself to his right to turn it around for a corner.

Pretty clear yellow for the defender as Schade is again sliced down.

ATTACKING CHANGE

Christian Streich has decided he needs to switch things up so sends on striker Kevin Schade for Nico Schlotterbeck. It will see a change to a back four.

GOES ALL THE WAY IN!

Grifo nearly curled a cross all the way in earlier, but Kostic has now done so for Frankfurt. A free-kick far out on the right, bending in towards the far post. Kamada is the closest to it but doesn't get a touch and it bounces in with Flekken stranded.

That's Lindström's first Bundesliga goal with his 10th shot in his 10th game.

LINDSTRÖM FOR FRANKFURT!

Flekken had just made a smart save but he couldn't do anything about this. Frankfurt drive forward, Jakic is half-tackled on the edge of the box but the ball falls kindly for Lindström and he slots a tidy finish beyond the Freiburg goalkeeper.

TRAPP AGAIN TO THE RESCUE!

A wicked cross from Grifo on the left, swinging it in on his right towards the far post. No doubt it is a cross and he's looking for a teammate to get something on it, but it sails all the way through and Trapp has to react very quickly to throw out a left hand at the last second and turn it clear, because it was bending in.
20'

FREIBURG DENIED!

The home side have suddenly clicked into gear. A couple of quick passes on the edge of the area ends with Höler's side-footed effort from 15 yards out and central, but Trapp gets down well with a strong right hand to claw the shot away.

GRIFO HEADER

First attempt of the afternoon for the hosts as Kübler hangs a cross up to the far post. Grifo gets up above Tuta but can only plant his header at Trapp.

LINDSTRÖM DENIED!

The Dane is in again, this time down the right onto Kamada's pass through. He tried to go across Flekken but the Freiburg goalkeeper sticks out a right boot to deny him.

GREAT TOUCH

Frankfurt come forward again, this time through Lindström showing quick feet on the left. He cuts onto his right looking for Borre in the middle, but Lienhart shows his flexibility to get a leg to the ball just in time.
5'

END-TO-END

A lively start in Freiburg with both teams looking to get the ball up the far end as quickly as possible. Borre was a bit too eager on this occasion and was offside as he tried to run in behind.
Kick-off!

A TIGHT FIXTURE

It’s tight in the head-to-head record between these sides, with Frankfurt just edging it with 14 wins to 13 (plus seven draws). Freiburg have only beaten Schalke more often in the Bundesliga 17 wins) than they have Eintracht, but it’s only one in the last eight encounters (D4, L3). Still, the Black Forest club are yet to lose at home to the Eagles with Christian Streich on the touchline (W3, D4). Streich missed Frankfurt’s 2-0 win here in August 2018 due to a back problem.

LAST-MINUTE FRANKFURT

Eintracht have scored crucial added-time goals in each of their last three competitive games, including Rafael Borre’s winner at Fürth last time out. The Eagles have been stronger on their travels this season as well, earning eight of their 12 points on the road. This is their third away game in a row, with both the previous two at Olympiacos and Fürth being 2-1 wins.

FREIBURG’S EXCELLENT START

Freiburg’s unbeaten start to the season may have finally come to an end last matchday in Munich, but 22 points from the first 11 games is still their second-best start to a Bundesliga campaign and they have sat third for three matchdays. They were 14th with just two wins at this stage last season.

EUROPA-PARK STADION’S THIRD GAME

Freiburg’s first two matches at their new home have seen a 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig and 3-1 win over Greuther Fürth. Across stadiums and seasons, Christian Streich’s side are unbeaten in their last nine Bundesliga home games (W5, D4). Ten would see them equal their club record from 2012.

WATCH: INSIDE THE FRANKFURT CHANGING ROOM

FRANKFURT TEAM NEWS

Eintracht claimed a dramatic 2-1 win away at Fürth last matchday but make two changes to their line-up. One is enforced with Martin Hinteregger picking up a knock. He’s replaced at the back by veteran Makoto Hasebe. The other sees Timothy Chandler come in for Erik Durm at right wing-back.

FREIBURG TEAM NEWS

Despite defeat last time out at Bayern, Christian Streich sticks with the same team that started the 2-1 loss. Nico Schlotterbeck was a doubt but confirmed ahead of the game he would be fit, and so starts in the back three.
