UNDERSIDE OF THE BAR!
Was that the last chance?! Stuttgart had moved upfield and lost the ball. Kostic was sent away up down the left and cut back to Borre behind the penalty spot, but he fired his effort off the underside of the crossbar. It then bounces off the back of Müller and back towards the line, but the ball then spins away from the line as the goalkeeper gratefully throws himself on it.

We said he's been the most likely for Stuttgart and the new man has done it. Frankfurt fail to clear their lines, Coulibaly heads it back into the box where Marmoush nips in, rounds Trapp and slots home a maiden Bundesliga goal he's deserved on his debut for the club.
Kostic marks his 100th Bundesliga game for Frankfurt by scoring the second most unlikely goal of the season. His shot had a goal probability of only 1.69%. It's also only the second time he's come off the bench to score in the Bundesliga, having previously done so for Stuttgart in 2014.
A horror show at the back for Stuttgart as Anton misses a throw from his own teammate and Borre races onto the ball. Anton sees no other option but to take him down before the Colombian gets into the box. Red card and a free-kick to Eintracht.

KOSTIC DOES IT!
A roar from Kostic is greeted by cheers in return from the Frankfurt faithful. He has space on the inside left, drives into the box and flashes a shot across goal, out of the reach of Müller, and into the far bottom corner for the goal this game needed!
The Stuttgart man has his hands on his head and can't believe he hasn't scored. Karazor with the perfect ball through into the box. He's winding up to fire on goal but Sow throws himself across his line to put in a crucial block.
BALL IN THE NET
Kamada has Deutsche Bank Park cheering but not for long after he latched onto a ball into the box, but it had taken a deflection off referee Jöllenbeck so he calls play back.
FRANKFURT TAKING CONTROL
Pellegrino Matarazzo decides he can't wait any longer either and makes changes up front, including a debut for teenager Ömer Beyaz/
OFF THE BAR!
The game has suddenly burst to life and Frankfurt could be ahead. Lenz delivers a corner from the right, Hinteregger meets it with his head after Müller had missed it. The header goes downwards but bounces up and off the crossbar to safety.

Oliver Glasner blinks first and decides to try and force a result for his team by sending on Filip Kostic. He also hands a debut to new signing Kristijan Jakic, who is a holding midfielder.
YELLOW FOR LENZ
The Frankfurt left-back goes in hard and late on Endo and is shown his third yellow of the season already.
WILL SOMEONE BREAK THEIR DUCK?
Frankfurt are yet to score at home this season. Stuttgart are yet to score on their travels.
GOOD AGAIN, OMAR
The 22-year-old gets his skates on again on a diagonal run from right to left and wins a corner as he tries to break free into the box.
The new signing looks the most likely to find a way through for Stuttgart. He pulls out a good flick over his head to get away from Hinteregger and race away, but the angle ends up too tight as he fires into the side netting.
Both teams are trying to play quickly at the start of this half but a number of challenges (and fouls) are stopping any momentum from building. The latest interruption comes from Sow being taken down 35 yards from goal.
BACK TO THE ACTION
The same 22 players who started the game are back out for the second 45 minutes.
Chances have been started to come, both goalkeepers have been forced into saves, but we’re yet to see anything clear-cut so far.
AT A PREMIUM
Only one minute of it in Frankfurt.
STILL ONE THING MISSING
The Dane drives into the box from the right and tries to pick out Kamada arriving into the six-yard box, but Mavropanos has the Frankfurt playmaker tracked and cuts it out, but not without also taking out his own goalkeeper too.
Anton can't complain much here as Kamada turns him on the halfway line and the Stuttgart defender pulls back his man.
Stuttgart try their luck down the right this time through Massimo. He drives into the box with few up in support so opts to go himself but fires straight at Trapp at his near post, who parries behind.
The debutant is shown the first card of the game after an overexuberant attempt to beat Hinteregger to a header.

Shots are starting to come now. It's Kamada again onto Hauge's ball down the left and he goes for it first time wide of the box. Perhaps intended as a cross, it drifts into the arms of Müller.

Best move of the game by far so far comes from the new Stuttgart striker. He bursts past N'Dicka down the left, gets to the by-line in the penalty area and looks to beat Trapp at his near post himself, but the Germany international makes himself but to prevent the opening goal.
The left-back delivers one of his trademark dangerous crosses, this time from a free-kick deep on the left. Trapp decides he's best to race out and punch from the Eintracht goal before the flag goes up for offside against the visitors.

Sunday's Bundesliga action is underway in sunny Frankfurt.
As ever in Frankfurt, the home faithful are in good voice ahead of kick-off. Cameras have also spotted a lone Stuttgart fan with a friend among the Eintracht kits and scarves.

STUTTGART TEAM NEWS
The visitors also exchange their striker for a newer model as Omar Marmoush is handed his debut from the start in place of Hamadi Al Ghaddioui. It’s the Egyptian-Canadian’s first Bundesliga start after eight sub appearances for Wolfsburg. And Pellegrino Matarazzo also brings Atakan Karazor into midfield after his recovery from injury, replacing the ill Philipp Förster.
FRANKFURT TEAM NEWS
The hosts make just one change from the team that started their 1-1 draw with Arminia Bielefeld a fortnight ago and that’s up front as deadline day signing Sam Lammers replaces Rafael Borre at centre-forward after his late return from international duty with Colombia. Filip Kostic is also back in the squad and finds himself on the bench for only the third time in the Bundesliga with Eintracht. The last time that happened was in November, also against former club Stuttgart.
