TRAPP AGAIN!

Perhaps his best save yet to thwart Herrmann's stinger. And there he is again from the corner. Safe hands or what?!

TRAPP DOOR

Frankfurt's No.1 beats away a shot from Thuram, and gobbles up the ensuing corner. It'll take something special to get past him in the closing stages.

KOSTIC!

The game's becoming really stretched as Kostic collects the ball in the Gladbach box. He's all alone, but the angle's tight and Sommer is equal to the shot.
88'

POWER OF THE PUNCH

Herrmann whips in a free-kick, but Trapp leaps through a clutch of bodies and punches clear. Superb goalkeeping.
86'

DANGER MEN

Herrmann and Thuram have caused all manner of problems for the Frankfurt defence since coming on. They're both involved as Gladbach win a pair of corners. Eintracht survive, though.
83'

FRANKFURT CHANGES

Lindstrom makes way after playing out of his skin in the Frankfurt attack. Sow also jogs off, with Barkok and Lenz joining the fray. It looks like Kostic will shift inside for the remainder.

TRAPP!

Ginter rises above his marker to meet Kramer's cross, but again it's too close to Trapp. He simply tips the ball over.
79'

KRAMER!

Gladbach are piling on the pressure, and Frankfurt can barely get out of their own half. Da Costa's in no man's land as a ball comes in for Kramer, who heads straight at Trapp. Either side of the keeper, and that's a goal.

OFF THE POST!

Gladbach are really under the cosh as Lindstrom fires just over from range. He gets an even more presentable opening seconds later, but bends his low strike against the outside of Sommer's left-hand post.
57'

FRANKFURT STRIKE AGAIN!

What a game this is turning out to be. Less than two minutes after Bensebaini sinks his penalty, Frankfurt retake the lead. Hinteregger sends Kamada up the middle, but he still has it all to do. His first touch lets him pull clear of the back-tracking Gladbach defenders, and his finish is a treat - low and into the far corner under some real pressure.

LINDSTROM!

What a start to the second half. Kostic has N'Dicka on the overlap. He pulls a ball back towards the edge of the six-yard box. Borre takes three Gladbach players with him, freeing the space for Lindstrom to fire high into the roof of the net.

FRANKFURT LEVEL!

Zakaria leaves his station at centre-back, and loses possession. Rode finds Lindstrom, who delays his cross and stands up Bensebaini before picking out Borre for a routine finish from barely two yards out. Ginter was playing the Colombian on, something the VAR doesn't take long to confirm.

SOMMER TO THE RESCUE

Kostic swings over another devilish cross. Bensebaini misses it or pulls out - it's hard to tell - but there's Sommer at the second time of asking, with Lindstrom arriving at the far post.
31'

OH, EMBOLO!

Embolo uses his strength to hold off his marker from deep. He continues his run and gets back possession, before wellying over from range. Not his strong suit, but the fans applaud the effort.

PLEA!

Embolo holds off Hinteregger, before releasing the ball to Neuhaus midway through the Frankfurt half. The Gladbach scorer squeezes a lovely pass into the feet of Plea on the edge of the box, but Trapp gets his angles right and bats clear at his near post.
23'

OVER FROM DA COSTA!

Lindstrom with a fabulous piece of improvised skill to win a corner. Da Costa meets Kostic's inswinger, but is right under it and heads over.
19'

EMBO-NO!

Scally's involved again for Gladbach. He's in an advanced position and crosses for Embolo, who fires straight at Trapp.
17'

SCALLYWAG

Frankfurt can't live with the rampaging Scally. He goes full stealth mode to collect Embolo's no-look pass into the box, but Trapp's out to make a huge block before the flag goes up for offside.
14'

KOSTIC THREAT

Frankfurt look for Kostic again. He swings over a trademark cross that's only half cleared. It bounces awkwardly in front of Lindstrom, who can't keep his header down from the penalty spot.
9'

SOMMER ALERT

Frankfurt look for an immediate response as Kostic tears past Scally. The shot from a tight angle is on, but he's always thinking about the pass. Sommer is, too, and duly smothers at the feet of Lindstrom, who'd arrived in the six-yard box unmarked.
7'

NEUHAUS!

Superb Gladbach goal! Kone threads a ball through to Netz, who crosses for Scally. The American looks like he might go for goal, but instead cushions a header back to Neuhaus. He's just inside the box as he controls, before lashing low and hard into the far corner. Just what the doctor ordered for the Foals!

KAMADA ON THE PROWL

Daichi Kamada gets in behind the Gladbach defence. He manages to keep the ball in as he drives along the by-line, but Bensebaini sticks with him and forces the Japanese attacker out of play.
Kick-off!

'A POSITION WE DIDN'T EXPECT TO BE IN'

"We are really unhappy with the situation," said Hütter of Gladbach's three-game losing run. "In three games we have put ourselves in a position that we didn’t expect to be in. Now it’s about working to turn that around and speaking to the players individually. It is really important that we are communicating well. We have to recapture the things we were doing well in a lot of games. We need to be brave and not just sit back and stop playing proactive football. That’s not our game and not how we want to play. We have to put aside the ego of each individual. The main thing is that we get back to winning ways."

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS

Hütter's forced into a handful of changes, with defender Nico Elvedi and top scorer Jonas Hofmann sidelined, and captain Lars Stindl suspended. Florian Neuhaus, Laszlo Benes and Luca Netz come into the midfield, with Denis Zakaria dropping into a back three, while Alassane Plea is preferred to Marcus Thuram in attack. As for Frankfurt, they're unchanged following their 5-2 comeback win over Leverkusen.

MIXED OMENS

Frankfurt are without a win in six against the Foals (D2, L4), and have lost their last three trips to Mönchengladbach. However, the Eagles are the fourth best performing away team this season, with 11 points from a possible 24.
camera-photo

THE HÜTTER FACTOR

Hütter oversaw 102 Bundesliga matches across his three full seasons in charge of Frankfurt, averaging 1.56 points per game. His Gladbach average is 1.2.

EAGLES SOARING

Frankfurt overturned a 2-0 deficit at home to Bayer Leverkusen and soared back to win 5-2 on Sunday. It enabled them to put three points between themselves and their former coach Adi Hütter's current employers. Oliver Glasner’s side look to have finally clicked after a slow start to the season, and now find themselves only six points off Leverkusen in third.

GLADBACH DIP

Gladbach have suffered heavy defeats in their last three outings at Cologne (4-1), home to Freiburg (6-0) and most recently away at RB Leipzig on Saturday (4-1). They've slipped to 13th as a result, and begin the day only two points clear of the relegation play-off spot.
