Full-time: Heidenheim 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt

Half-time: Heidenheim 0-1 Frankfurt

Frankfurt are fortunate to be in front after Heidenheim edged a half of few chances. The visitors have a bump in the penalty area to thank for the curious own goal that gives them the lead at the break!

Frankfurt take the lead - in bizarre circumstances

Poor Kevin Müller! Benedikt Gimber plays a routine backpass to the Heidenheim goalkeeper, and the ball takes a wicked bobble on the turf just when Müller was preparing to launch it upfield - running straight past an embarrassed goalkeeper and in!

Frankfurt almost take the lead

A cross-cum-shot by Niels Nkounkou is almost juggled over his own goal line by Kevin Müller, but the Heidenheim goalkeeper claws it away. That would have been tough on the hosts, who have started as the better side.

Opening battles

Heidenheim have pushed forward in the opening few minutes, and have probed Frankfurt with a couple of set-pieces hoisted into the area despite the absence of dead ball specialist Jan-Niklas Beste.

Two changes for both sides

Heidenheim must do without two key players this afternoon. Playmaking set-piece specialist Jan-Niklas Beste and defensive midfielder Lennard Maloney both have minor injuries and are replaced in Frank Schmidt's starting line-up by Kevin Sessa and Marnon Busch. Frankfurt have also made two changes with Niels Nkounkou and Farès Chaibi starting instead of Donny van de Beek and Hugo Ekitiké.

Schmidt's view on Frankfurt

"Frankfurt's aspiration is to qualify for Europe. In comparison, we're competing to stay up. So, we're obviously not the favourites going into this game. Frankfurt are very good in attack, have scored lots of goals and have Omar Marmoush, who's in top form."

Toppmöller's view on Heidenheim

"They're really good in the transition, they press hard, play with passion and are a threat from set-pieces. They let the opposition have the ball, which makes sense given their style of play. We have to be good at counter-pressing to stop them breaking."
