Frankfurt's Fabian keeps Ancelotti's Bayern in check

With Robert Lewandowski left on the bench, Arjen Robben assumed goal-scoring duties at the Commerzbank-Arena. The Dutchman needed just ten minutes to break the deadlock with a fine finish from a tight angle, but Frankfurt did not fold. Timothy Chandler volleyed against the upright and Alexander Meier had chances, before the Eagles levelled matters late in the half thanks to an emphatic finish from Szabolcs Huszti.

Eintracht had barely put a foot wrong, but their hopes of taking something from the game were dealt a blow in the space of three minutes of high drama when Joshua Kimmich restored Bayern's lead moments before Huszti was sent off for his second bookable offence. Bayern were punished for not making their numerical advantage count, however, as Fabian met Chandler's cross-shot with his chest to rescue an unlikely, albeit well-deserved, point.

Talking Point

It's now two games in the Bundesliga without a win for Carlo Ancelotti's Bayern, and it is no coincidence that both those draws have coincided with an injury to French ace Franck Ribery. On this evidence, his return cannot come soon enough for the league leaders.
