GAME OVER

A top game ends all square, which is probably the right result on balance. Burkardt's first goal of the season put Mainz ahead in the first half before Kolo Muani netted his fifth goal of the campaign to equalise for Frankfurt - who momentarily go third in the standings - in the second half.

GÖTZE GREATNESS

Zentner races off his line (not for the first time in this game) to try and clear from Kolo Muani. Bad move. Mainz lose possession and the ball is played to Götze, who goes for a worldie, lobbed finish as Zentner scurries back. The keeper just makes it in time to save.

CHANCES BOTH ENDS

Trapp comes to Eintracht's rescue once more, the Qatar-bound goalkeeper saving well with his legs from Barreiro. At the other end, Kolo Muani almost creates an opening as he jinks down the left, beats his man and crosses into the centre. There was nobody there for Eintracht.

For a moment, it seems as though Eintracht have a penalty. Stefan Bell brings down the onrushing Kolo Muani, but after a review, the foul is adjudged to have taken place outside the box. Lindstrom hits the wall with the resulting set piece.

MAINZ LEAD

Amazing scenes. Burkardt fires Mainz into the lead but only after some sensational goalkeeping from Kevin Trapp. The custodian first denied Burkardt's header with a two-handed, point blank save from a corner. Onisiwo battered the rebound back at goal only for Trapp to save again. The loose ball was then headed back into Burkardt who converted from close range.

WASTEFUL LINDSTROM

Lindstrom goes on the longest run, barrelling past Mainz defenders and going face to face with Zentner. The Danish international takes way too long over his shot, however, and Mainz manage to clear after the forward is muscled out of the way.

Mainz should probably be in front. First, Barreiro and Jonathan Burkardt combine to draw a good save from Trapp. From the resulting corner, Kohr slams a super long-distance shot inches wide of the upright.

BARREIRO TAKES A HIT

Leandro Barreiro is down in a heap inside the Eintracht area having taken a wallop from behind from Kristijan Jakic. Both players had their eye on the ball as it looped into the box. Barreiro eventually gets back to his feet and the game can continue.

KAMADA OFF TARGET

Free kick Eintracht, slighty to the right and at a distance from goal. Kamada lines it up and assesses his options in the area. The Japan international tries a tricky one and shoots for the near post. He misses by a mile, much to the delight of the home fans.

EINTRACHT'S SWEET WIN

A flowing performance led to Frankfurt putting four past their previous opponents, Hoffenheim, during the week.

"COOL CHARACTERS"

Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner has every right to be thrilled with his players for their achievements on the domestic front and in Europe of late. "If the lads weren’t such cool characters, there wouldn’t be such a good atmosphere in the dressing room," the coach said. "When we sign players, we make sure they’re good lads who put the success of the team above all else."

"SOMETHING TO PROVE"

Here's what home coach Bo Svensson had to say about today's encounter: "The pressure is there: we have to perform because we don’t want to have that feeling again like we had sitting in the dressing room after the [defeat] against Schalke. We’ve got something to prove, and that’s important to me."

EAGLES' LOFTY GOAL

By contrast, Eintracht have been flying. Should they add one more victory to a run that has seen them win four of their last five games, Die Adler could end up in second place in the standings at the end of Matchday 15, results from other games pending.

MAINZ NEED A LIFT

Mainz have been sliding in the wrong direction these past weeks, with Bo Svensson's men losing their last three games in a row and conceding ten times during that sequence. The 05ers will want to steady the ship asap and a solid performance against the Eagles will be the order of the day at the MEWA Arena.

IT'S MATCHDAY!

We're back, Bundesliga fans. The last Bundesliga Sunday before we break for the World Cup is upon us and we've got a couple of very enticing fixtures to bring your way. The first sees Mainz host the in-form Eintracht Frankfurt.
