Dramatic win for Schalke; Frankfurt and Bremen held

Munich - FC Schalke turned the tables on Eintracht Braunschweig, 1. FC Nürnberg rescued a point at Eintracht Frankfurt and the goal glut ground to a halt in Bremen on a memorable afternoon in the Bundesliga.

Eintracht Braunschweig 2-3 FC Schalke 04 reviews the action...

A last-gasp Roman Neustädter strike helped FC Schalke 04 to a dramatic 3-2 win at Eintracht Braunschweig.

Orhan Ademi failed to make the most of a decent opening just eight minutes in, but Eintracht's young Swiss forward did better moments later, breaking the deadlock for the hosts from close range. Schalke were level come the half-hour mark, however, as Adam Szalai saw his headed effort denied by Daniel Davari, with Max Meyer slotting in the rebound for his second goal of the season.

Neustädter to the rescue

Braunschweig survived a second-half scare when defensive sloppiness saw the ball come to Neustädter, whose effort went wide, shortly before Karim Bellarabi crowned a counter-attack at the other end of the pitch to fire promoted Braunschweig back in front.

Schalke were never going to give in and parity was restored when substitute Goretzka slotted home in 65th minute. Jens Keller's men threw bodies forward in the dying stages in search of the winner, and the Royal Blues' efforts were rewarded in the first minute of stoppage time when Neustädter directed Julian Draxler's pin-point pass into the back of the net.

Line-ups and statistics

Eintracht Frankfurt 1-1 1. FC Nürnberg

Josip Drmic struck four minutes from time as 1. FC Nürnberg came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Frankfurt went into the game quietly confident of getting the job done, having chalked up more wins over Nürnberg than any other side in the Bundesliga. The Eagles duly locked down possession for much of the first half, albeit without testing Raphael Schäfer between the Nürnberg posts.

Even stevens

That soon changed within five minutes of the restart, though, as Alexander Meier sent Vaclav Kadlec through on goal. Eintracht’s leading scorer gobbled up the opening, planting his effort beyond the keeper’s reach for his fourth goal of the campaign.

Niklas Stark rattled the crossbar as the visitors looked for an unlikely route back into the game, and their persistence was rewarded when substitutes Robert Mak and Drmic combined to secure 16th-place Nurnberg only their third away point this term.

Line-ups and statistics

Werder Bremen 0-0 SC Freiburg

Werder Bremen and SC Freiburg were forced to settle for a point in the Bundesliga's first goalless draw of the 2013/14 campaign.

Still chasing their first Bundesliga win this season, Freiburg flew out of the blocks, with Admir Mehmedi trying his luck inside 120 seconds. Christian Streich’s men continued in much the same vein as the half progressed, but in truth Grün-Weißen goalkeeper Sebastian Mielitz had little to do.

Flurry of chances

Bremen almost broke the deadlock in the 58th minute when Sebastian Freis inadvertently directed a Zlatko Junuzovic corner against his own post, with the woodwork later coming to the rescue of Bremen to deny Matthias Ginter from close range.

Nils Petersen could have won it late on, but Freiburg custodian Oliver Baumann did his job to ensure his first clean sheet of the season as well as the German top flight's first 0-0 draw since 28 April 2013.
