No celebration from the ex-Leverkusen man as he nets his first Bundesliga goal for Eintracht. Borre onto the through ball and he unselfishly squares for his Argentinian strike partner to tap home.

IN BEHIND AGAIN...

Frankfurt know there's always space in behind so send the ball through again with Kolo Muani chasing. Hincapie charges after him and throws in a slide to prevent the shot with a last-ditch tackle.

BAKKER HAS A GO

Space down the left for the Leverkusen wing-back but he fires his effort straight at Trapp at his near post.
65'

BRILLIANT FINISH!

Frankfurt counter as Hincapie misses a bouncing ball just inside his own half. Lindstrom is away, with the Ecuadorian racing after him, but he can't reach before the Eintracht man pulls out a sublime lob over Hradecky from a tight angle.

DOUBLE CHANCE!

First Lindstrom is played through and drags just inches wide under pressure from Tah. And then moments later a ball comes across the box and is met by Dina Ebimbe, but he puts it straight at Hradecky.
58'

IMMEDIATE RESPONSE!

Just seconds after Kolo Muani's cutback only just evaded Götze, the France international makes up for his penalty miss with a diving header of his own to meet a perfect Lenz cross from the left. Leverkusen were level for no more than 120 seconds.

LEVERKUSEN LEVEL!

Well, well. From pretty much nothing - a free-kick from deep and wide on the right - Hincapie launches himself between two defenders to reach Demirbay's delivery with his head and beats Trapp from about 12 yards. The ninth time this campaign Frankfurt have conceded from a set piece and we're all square again!

The Win Probability hadn't changed too much through that half, just falling a bit for both teams as it remained goalless. But that Kamada penalty has swung the odds very much in Frankfurt's favour. Leverkusen's chances have now sunk from 33% to just nine.

Who would've thought the free signing of Kolo Muani would prove such good business? Well, Frankfurt did. The French striker is slipped in, jinks past a couple of defenders onto his right foot and tries to pick out the corner but is denied by Hradecky.

Lovely ball without even lifting his head from Diaby on the left of the area. It drops perfectly for Frimpong on the other side, which he meets on the volley, but Leverkusen's top scorer can only clip the top of the crossbar.

FRANKFURT ALMOST DESERVING OF A GOAL

information
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).
But the crucial stat is that it's still goalless on the scoreboard.

Again for Kolo Muani, this time slipped in by Lindstrom, but he can't beat Hradecky from close range.

WASTED

Free-kick 30 yards out right of centre from Leverkusen. They shape for the cross into the middle but the ball instead goes down the line for Frimpong. But it's too much and Trapp comes out to collect at the Dutchman's feet.
20'

NOW IT'S LEVERKUSEN

Brilliant last week, Frimpong has just come alive in this game with a run down the right. He cuts back for Diaby, whose shot takes a deflection wide. The corner is then quickly cleared.
18'

PAULINHO...

Superb back heel on the run from Diaby to knock a long ball into the path of Paulinho. He tries to burst into the box but is outmuscled before he can get a shot away.

FRONT-FOOT FRANKFURT

They may have been in London on Wednesday but Eintracht are looking the much livelier side in the opening quarter of an hour, pouring forward at every possible moment. Just missing that final ball so far.

A Frankfurt corner routine is played straight to a red shirt but the ball bounces back free for Kamada on the left of the box. He tries to skip past Aranguiz. There is contact as the Japan international goes down, but no penalty there.

GOLDEN CHANCE!

Super ball from Götze into the path of Kolo Muani running in behind. Tah can't make a tackle from behind but Hincapie times his slide from the side perfectly to block the shot from just inside the box.

GÖTZE!

First effort of the game as Tah only clears a header to Götze on the edge of the box. A quick chest and volley that has Hradecky scrambling but it flashes wide.

EARLY TOUCH FOR HRADECKY

The ex-Eintracht goalkeeper is still fondly remembered here in Frankfurt after their 2018 DFB Cup win. We've seen some mixed performances from the Leverkusen captain this year. He'll feel particularly motivated for a good effort today.

HASEBE SIDELINED

Sad news for Frankfurt in the build-up to this one as it was revealed that defender Makoto Hasebe would be out for weeks with a knee ligament injury picked up against Spurs during the week. Our team of experts predict that Eintracht will go for a back three containing Jakic, Tuta and Ndicka for today's game.

XABI TALKS TEAM SPIRIT

What a week it's been for new Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso. After overseeing an impressive win against Schalke in his first game in charge of Die Werkself, there was a tougher experience for all connected with Bayer in midweek with that 3-0 loss against Porto in the Champions League. But as the new boss says, it's all part of a long process. “We’ve spent the first week together working on getting to know each other. Now we’re working on finding our identity and building up team spirit,” Alonso explained.

FRANKFURT FRESH

Despite Eintracht's busy period with Bundesliga, Champions League and upcoming DFB Cup commitments, coach Oliver Glasner is relieved to see his players still looking fresh faced, particularly after that tough slog in London during the week when the Eagles went down to Tottenham Hotspur. "I’d have expected the lads to be a bit more tired today, 36 hours after coming back from London," the tactician said in the build up to today's game. "But they’re raring to go physically and mentally. We’re feeling good."

WELCOME!

Frankfurt are out to get their top-four push back on track, after slumping to a shock defeat to rock-bottom Bochum last time out. Leverkusen are the visitors, with the Xabi Alonso effect in full flow after the ex-Bayern midfielder oversaw a comfortable 3-0 win over Schalke on his debut as a Bundesliga head coach.
