Fair result

A much better second half with Frankfurt deservedly levelling, and almost snatching the points late on.

Decision confirmed

The on-field decision is confirmed, though it was a close call... and that is that.

Kamada goal chalked off

Kamada does have the ball in the back of the net from the next Frankfurt corner (guess who took it?), but he was just offside from N'Dicka's header, though VAR is being checked.

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).
On balance, a 1-1 draw appears to be a fair scoreline. And on xG.

Sippel stunned

Sippel could do nothing to prevent Paciencia's piledriver from bring Frankfurt level.
83'

Ovation for Da Costa

That is the end of Da Costa's last game at the Deutsche Bank Park in a Frankfurt shirt, and he gets a standing ovation as he makes way for Lenz. Next season, he will be back in a Mainz shirt.

Trapp okay

If there were any concerns about Trapp's hand, he's just alleviated them with a fine save to keep Frankfurt on terms.
75'

Wrist wrapped

Trapp's wrist has been wrapped heavily and Hasebe helps him try to get his glove back on. Although Grahl is ready, he is not coming on just yet.
74'

Trapp in pain

After denying Netz, Trapp calls for treatment and he is going to be replaced - he may well have damaged a finger there, and that is not what Frankfurt's fans will want to see with the Europa League final on the horizon.

Frankfurt shooting back

The second half has been largely Frankfurt's, and now they are back on terms - can they get a winner?
71'

Heroic Hasebe!

Embolo swings at Plea's cross and makes a hash of it, but he's fortunate that the ball rebounds back to him. Faced with an open goal, he snaps at the ball and Hasebe is well placed on the line to make the clearance!
70'

Hrustic injured

Although he's carrying a knock, Hrustic still manages to drive in a shot which deflects behind for a corner, but now he has asked to be replaced.
66'

What. A. Strike!

If Glasner was in any doubt as to whom he would pick to lead his attack in Sevilla, Paciencia has just boosted his chances with a stunning shot from over 25 yards out! Pick that one out!

The second time Frankfurt go close from a corner and it's Ilsanker again! His effort his saved on the line by Plea, who scored at one end and has now made a fine save at the other.

Embol-oh!

Big chance for Gladbach to double their lead with Embolo sent clean through on goal, but Trapp makes a save with his leg!
47'

Stindl strike

The first two shots of the second half, just like in the first, are for Gladbach. Stindl's curling effort is dealt with at the second time of asking by Trapp.
46'

Tuta makes way

Kostic comes on for Tuta, with Chandler swapping sides and dropping back into the defence. A reshuffle to try to shake Frankfurt up for the second half.

Foals edging it

Fair to say it has not been a classic, but that was to be expected with the stakes as they are. Frankfurt's fans will hope to see at least one goal from their team in the second half, though.

Fair play

There have been just four fouls in the first half so far, three by a Frankfurt player and just one by the guests.

Ilsanker over

Frankfurt's second corner of the game is looped to the far post where Ilsanker, leaning pack, manages to loop his header just onto the roof of the goal.

Hofmann disorientated

A rebound off his own shot came back straight into Hofmann's face, and he was assisted off the field by the physios, visibly disorientated. He's back now, though, and looks to have recovered all of his senses.

Frankfurt rallying

Aside from those two shots in the first few minutes, Gladbach have not tested Trapp's goal since, while Frankfurt are getting closer and closer.

Happy Foals

Frankfurt's fans are making the noise, but Gladbach's players have more to be happy about so far.
22'

Slow pace

Probably no surprise, but the pace of the game is quite slow, with the stakes not particularly high for either team - not that Frankfurt's fans are lowering their voices as a result.

Paciencia strike

Sippel does need to get his gloves dirty to stop Paciencia's effort, Frankfurt's first shot on target.

Taking his chance

Sam Lammers is one of Frankfurt's fringe players given a chance today, and it cannot be said he is not putting in the effort to impress his coach.

The stage is set

Not long now until kick-off, and Frankfurt's famously vociferous fans are ready to welcome their heroes again, just days after a celebration to beat all celebrations after reaching the Europa League final.

Da Costa farewell

Danny da Costa, who will move to Mainz in the summer, gets to play one last game in a Frankfurt shirt at the Deutsche Bank Park. This is the 28-year-old's first start in over two months and only his third of 2022.

200 for Hofmann

Jonas Hofmann makes his 200th Bundesliga appearance today.

Watch: Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-3 Eintracht Frankfurt - highlights

Eintracht just about edged the reverse, which was a five-goal thriller at Borussia Park back in December.

Sippel starts

Three changes are made to the Gladbach team from a week ago with Sippel given a rare start in goal for Sommer. Like Frankfurt, the Foals are assured of a mid-table finish to the season.

Gladbach starting XI:

Sippel - Beyer, Friedrich, Bensebaini - Lainer, Hofmann, Neuhaus, Netz - Stindl (c), Plea – Embolo

Opportunity knocks

What that means is that several players get a rare chance to stake their claim for a place in that final, such as Sam Lammers, who makes his first start since Matchday 8, Stefan Ilsanker, who starts for the first time since Matchday 7, and Aymen Barkok, who has not started a game since way back on Matchday 1.

Priority shift

After reaching the final of the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night, Frankfurt's focus is firmly on winning the final, which is just 10 days away against Scottish side Rangers. As such, Oliver Glasner's team selection includes eight changes from the 11 who started against West Ham United. Only Trapp, Tuta and N'dicka keep their places.

Frankfurt starting XI:

Trapp (c) - Tuta, Hasebe, Ndicka – Da Costa, Ilsanker, Hrustic, Chandler – Barkok, Lammers – Paciencia
