APOEL FC 0-3 Eintracht FrankfurtFULL-TIME: Yet to concede a goal in the UEFA Europa League groups stages, Eintracht Frankfurt retain top spot in Group F courtesy of a comprehensive 3-0 win away from home against APOEL FC. The Eagles are making this look easy. Stay tuned with bundesliga.com for the report...
APOEL FC 0-3 Eintracht Frankfurt85' The hosts should have pulled a goal back! Frankfurt allow themselves to become complacent at the back and are almost punished ruthlessly by APOEL. Esmael Goncalves breaks down the left to pull the ball back in the danger area where Selim Benachour is loitering to draw a strong save out of Kevin Trapp. However, the Cypriot side are unable to create anything from the resulting corner.
APOEL FC 0-3 Eintracht Frankfurt80' Frankfurt have taken the sting out of the game since romping to a 3-0 lead, the same margin of victory with which they beat Bordeaux on the opening Matchday. APOEL have offered very little in the second half and Kevin Trapp has had a rather easy day at the office in Cyprus.
APOEL FC 0-3 Eintracht Frankfurt70' APOEL's best chance of the game whistles just wide of the far post, as Thiago Gomes is afforded time and space to burst forward towards the Frankfurt box and duly pulls the trigger. It's as close as the hosts have come to getting themselves on the scoresheet, but right now they look unlikely to do so before the final whistle.
JUNG! Sebastian scores his 2nd goal of the night to give Eintracht Frankfurt a 3 goal lead vs APOEL. 3-0— Mohammad (@Bayernoholic) October 3, 2013
APOEL FC 0-3 Eintracht Frankfurt66’ GOAL! APOEL go to sleep for a split second after conceding a foul in midfield as Srdjan Lakic shows the presence of mind to take the free-kick quickly releasing the marauding Sebastian Jung, who has acres of space and plenty of time to pick his spot, handing Frankfurt a comfortable three-goal cushion.

2-0 Eintracht. "Feel the terror of Nicosia" is silenced.— Chris. (@cfccod) October 3, 2013
APOEL FC 0-2 Eintracht Frankfurt59’ GOAL! Out of absolutely nowhere Frankfurt extend their lead. The game had slumped into a rather dreary rhythm with niggling fouls in midfield dominating proceedings, but the Eagles snap back into life with a fine move which results in Srdjan Lakic grabbing his first goal of the current campaign, collecting Vaclav Kadlec's neat pass before threading the ball through the legs of the onrushing Urko Pardo.
APOEL FC 0-1 Eintracht Frankfurt52' The pace of proceedings has dropped of somewhat in the second half, with Frankfurt focusing on defending their narrow lead. The Eagles are still enjoying more of the ball than APOEL FC, but seem content to bide their time in seeking out a second goal as opposed to exposing themselves by throwing bodies forward so soon after the break. Tranquillo Barnetta continues to be a source of threat though, with his set-pieces regularly causing problems for the hosts.

APOEL FC 0-1 Eintracht Frankfurt40' Having taken the lead Frankfurt look to be in complete control of proceedings, but would be wise not to underestimate this APOEL side. However, they are demonstrating great composure in possession and are playing like a tram who have been plying their trade in Europe for years.
APOEL FC 0-1 Eintracht Frankfurt32' The signing of Tranquillo Barnetta on loan from FC Schalke 04 in the summer looks to have been a masterstroke from Armin Veh. The Swiss international, who has been busy all evening, fires in two dangerous free-kicks that have the home defence stretched, before Sebastian Rode's shot is blocked from the edge of the box.
APOEL FC 0-1 Eintracht Frankfurt27’ GOAL! Sebastian Jung has been Frankfurt's main outlet this evening and it's through another bursting run that the Eagles have taken the lead. Tranquillo Barnetta's lofted pass picks out the defender's run and his first-time cross flies in off a defender's knee. Frankfurt now have APOEL where they want them.
APOEL FC 0-0 Eintracht Frankfurt23' The hosts are having their best period of play so far but Carlos Zambrano is in unforgiving mood. The Peruvian defender sees off an APOEL counter-attack with a heft challenge on the onrushing Isma and the loose ball runs harmlessly into the arms of Kevin Trapp.
APOEL FC 0-0 Eintracht Frankfurt18' Not much to speak of in terms of goalmouth incident in the last few moments, but the tackles are flying in. Sebastian Jung attempts to control Carlos Zambrano's lofted pass but only succeeds in catching APOEL defender Helder Cabral high on the arm.

APOEL FC 0-0 Eintracht Frankfurt7' Its been a lively start to the game from Frankfurt, as captain Sebastian Jung bursts into the box and fizzes a cross across goal. Moments later, Tranquillo Barnetta's cross falls kindly for Srdjan Lakic, whose goal-bound effort is cleared off the line.

Sevilla FC 2-0 SC Freiburg90’ GOAL! Sevilla extend their lead as they take advantage of Freiburg tired legs.

Sevilla FC 1-0 SC Freiburg79' Oliver Baumann is doing his best to keep his side in the game as the German U-21 keeper makes a sprawling save to turn Ivan Rakitic's fierce drive away from danger. However, it will matter little if Freiburg's ten men fail to produce anything at the other end.
Sevilla FC 1-0 SC Freiburg75' A rare sight of goal sees Sebastian Freis play in the marauding Christian Günther, but the left-back can't find the target with his weaker foot as the opportunity is squandered. The defenders effort was the first shot on goal Freiburg have had in the second half against Sevilla, which is quite simply not good enough.
Sevilla FC 1-0 SC Freiburg70' A goal and a man down, Freiburg have their backs up against the wall in Seville. However, despite their precarious position, Christian Streich's side have demonstrated on several occasions that they have a lot of character and should never be discounted until the final whistle has been blown. As if to prove the point Streich has brought on a third striker to see if his side can rescue a share of the spoils as Sebastian Freis comes on in place of Felix Klaus.
Sevilla FC 1-0 SC Freiburg63’ GOAL! Diego Perotti steps up and calmy sends Oliver Baumann the wrong way to hand Sevilla the lead at home to Freiburg.
Sevilla FC 0-0 SC Freiburg61’ PENALTY + RED CARD! Freiburg are reduced to ten-men as Fallou Diagne brings Bacca down as the last man, denying the striker a clear goalscoring opportunity, giving the referee little choice, but to point to the spot and produce a red card.

Sevilla FC 0-0 SC FreiburgSECOND-HALF: We're back underway with the scores level at 0-0 between Sevilla FC and Bundesliga side SC Freiburg. Chances were at a premium during the first half, but both sides may be tempted to take more risks in the second 45 minutes, which could lead to the space opening up at either end. Here's to hoping!
Freiburg are sporting a dark blue and pink kit against Sevilla tonight (see above). Fortunately for them, while it may not be the most attractive kit ever seen on a football pitch, it certainly doesn’t compare to some of these horror outfits from Bundesliga years past!
