In the early match, the Eagles lost against Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC in Israel, while nine-man Freiburg held on for a point against Estoril Praia in Portugal. As ever, bundesliga.com brought you LIVE updates throughout the matches...
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC FreiburgFULL TIME!: That concludes our coverage of tonight's Europa League matches, thanks for joining us. You can read the match report from Frankfurt's 3-2 defeat here and keep an eye out for the Freiburg report, which will appear shortly...
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC FreiburgFULL TIME!: The referee signals the end of the game and Freiburg return to Germany with a hard-earned point. It wasn't pretty, but given Sevilla's draw with Liberec, Freiburg can still progress to the next round.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg90 +2' We're into the second of four minutes of added time. Freiburg are just sitting back and trying to hold on to the point now. Who can blame them?
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg90' Estoril waste two glorious chances to grab the points. First Seba does well to control a dinked ball over the defence, but can't beat Baumann, who blocks with his feet. The ball falls to Bruno Lopes, who has the goal at his mercy ten yards out but inexplicably opts for power over precision and smacks the ball over the bar.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg88' RED CARD!: By going down to nine men is how. Karim Guede also heads for an early shower for a second bookable offence. That's certainly made things more interesting going into the final couple of minutes.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg86' RED CARD!: Nicolas Höfler is given his marching orders after receiving his second yellow card of the night. How will Freiburg react to going down to ten men?
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg82' If the score stays as it is - which is highly likely given tonight's on-field offerings - Freiburg will stay in third place in Group H, a single point ahead of their hosts and five behind leaders FC Sevilla, who are currently drawing 1-1 at home to FC Slovan Liberic
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg78' Pass, pass, pass, hoof. And repeat. Both teams are defending very well, closing ranks swiftly as soon as the opposition get the ball. Unfortunately it has led to numerous players losing patience with trying to build a well-worked attack and merely hitting it forward.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg74' Freiburg are struggling to clear their lines at the moment and are resorting to hopeful punts forward to provide momentary relief from the Estoril onslaught. The ball keeps coming right back at them though.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg69' Diagne loops a high cross into the box from a free-kick but it is easily dealt with by Estoril. You get the feeling this one will be decided, if at all, by a moment of magic from a set-piece.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg65' The hosts really should be 1-0 up now. After Darida got caught in possession in the middle of the park, Estoril pour forward, outnumbering Freiburg's defence. The ball is squared to the unmarked Seba 15 yards out, but the Brazilian smacks his left-footed effort way over the bar with the goal at his mercy. That was a big let-off.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg62' Well we wanted a sprightlier half and we've got one - just. Plenty of effort and running but the conditions are causing both sides to suffer on the slippery pitch.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg59'...and despite being poorly struck it finds a way through the wall, but Baumann is on hand to save. From the ensuing corner, an Estoril player has a glancing header skim the top of the crossbar.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg58' Estoril win a free-kick around 30 yards out...
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg53' Freiburg respond with an attack of their own and Darida lashes a shot goalwards from the edge of the area. Vagner can't hold it, but gathers at the second attempt. Darida's belter in our Matchday 11 Goal of the Week is highly recommended viewing.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg50' Estoril have come out of the changing rooms with a fire in their bellies and are going all out to take the lead. Luis Leal has had two headers within moments of each other, the second one forcing Baumann to dive full stretch and scratch the ball off the line at his left-hand post. SECOND HALF: We're back underway again in Portugal. Admir Mehmedi has come on in place of youngster Sebastian Kerk for the visitors. HALF TIME!: Why not wash down your half-time snack with a browse of the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel? Goals, interviews, bloopers and much more besides await...
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC FreiburgHALF TIME!: The referee puts both sides (and the spectators) out of their misery and blows for half time. Chances, even half-chances for that matter, have been virtually non-existent. Freiburg need to up their game in the second 45 - Estoril are bottom of Group H, so they won't get a better chance to pick up three points than here.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg44' Finally Freiburg are beginning to show a bit of verve in attack and have enjoyed more possession in Estoril's half in the last couple of minutes than in the rest of the first period. Let's hope the imminent interval doesn't disrupt their rhythm too much.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg39' Oliver Baumann cleanly collects a dangerous cross from the right. That'll do his confidence the world of good as the scars from this performance continue to heal.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg33' The play is concentrated in a congested midfield with neither side able to make any inroads of note past equally congested back lines.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg29' Isn't Portugal supposed to have a pleasant, sunny climate? It's absolutely hammering it down with rain and the ball is skimming along the slick surface. Let's say that's the reason why so many passes are going astray...
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg25' The hosts have looked the more threatening in attack and just opened up Freiburg's defence with a swift counterattack that ended with a snatched shot being fired over.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg21' Talk about anti-climax. Freiburg win another free-kick, this time just outside the Estoril box, slightly to the left. Vladimir Darida takes an age to set himself to hit on, only to fire a timid daisy-cutter goalwards that is easily saved.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg18' Streich looks furious on the touchline, though it's hard to tell whether it's with directed at one player in particular or the general casualness at the back. They nevertheless win a free-kick in a promising position on the right, but it curls harmlessly out of play.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg14' Freiburg may only have two points on the board in Group H but their performances have deserved more. Christian Streich's boys have held the lead in two of their tournament games so far, only to be pegged back. They're playing their typical hard-running style again this evening, but have had one or two wobbles at the back already.
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC Freiburg8' Subdued start in Portugal as both teams struggle to get a foothold in the game. There have already been a couple of heavy challenges, however. Neither side wants to lose this one...
Estoril Praia 0-0 SC FreiburgKICK-OFF: Now then, what have Freiburg got in store for us? They're underway in Portugal, with the visitors kicking from right to left. Freiburg are yet to win in this season's competition. Can Christian Streich's team record their first victory tonight? CONFIRMED LINE-UPS: Estoril Praia - SC Freiburg Estoril Praia: Vagner - Mano, Tavares, Fernandes, Babanco - Goncalo - Filipe Goncalves, Evandro - Carlitos, Seba - Leal Freiburg: Baumann - Sorg, Krmas, Diagne, Lorenzoni - Höfler - Kerk, Darida, Coquelin, Pilar - Guede FULL TIME: So Frankfurt lose their 100 per cent record in this season's UEFA Europa League. They looked dead and burried at the end of the first half, but a goal by Lakic and a penalty by Alexander Meier gave Armin Veh's side hope. It wasn't enough, however, as Maccabi wrapped up the points in stoppage time with another spot kick. Over to you, SC Freiburg!
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 4-2 Eintracht Frankfurt90’ GOAL! That settles it. Radi fires in a cross from the left and Anderson is adjudged to have handled it by the referee. Zahavi converts the resulting penalty and the home fans go wild. 4-2 now with just seconds remaining.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt90’ PENALTY! ... for Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt90' We're into stoppage time in Israel...
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt83' They're getting closer. Kadlec does well to get on the end of Schröck's cross, but the Czech striker's header lands just the wrong side of the post. Frankfurt are piling forward in search of a leveller and Joselu wastes another decent opportunity to get it as he fires over the crossbar.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt79' Maybe if I claim Frankfurt don't look like scoring again, they'll score?! Takashi Inui almost gets on the end of a low ball into the box, but the Japanese international can't quite get a toe to the ball. Moments later, Vaclav Kadlec, who has replaced Stefan Aigner, pulls the trigger inside the box, only to see his effort cannon off the defender's leg and out of harm's way.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt75' Provided they keep things tight at the other end, of course. Maccabi threaten down the left and Itzhaki fires in a dangerous cross, but the ball flies across the six yard box and out of play on the other side of the pitch. Unsurprisingly, Eintracht's fans have found their voice inside the Bloomfield Stadium. Can they inspire their team to find an equaliser?
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt70' So, Frankfurt don't look like scoring do they? Armin Veh's team had hardly threatened since that Aigner chance at the beginning of the half but, out of nowhere, the Eagles are just a goal away from levelling the score. Remember, a point is all Frankfurt need to qualify from the Europa League group stage tonight. One more goal will do it.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-2 Eintracht Frankfurt66’ GOAL! Incredible! Shiran Yeini handles the ball inside the penalty area and the referee has little choice but to award the spot-kick. Up steps Alexander Meier and calmly slots the ball past Juan Pablo to make it 3-2. Game on! 65’ PENALTY! ... for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-1 Eintracht Frankfurt62’ GOAL! What do I know? Srdjan Lakic reduces the deficit with a close-range header. Juan Pablo maybe should have done a little better, but it was a decent header and a good cross by Stephan Schröck from the right-hand side. Frankfurt are back in it!
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht Frankfurt57' ...which flies just wide of Trapp's goal. Veh might be tempted to make a change or two soon. Might Vaclav Kadlec give the Eagles more of an edge upfront? Or maybe even a Joselu? The visitors don't look like scoring at the moment. If anything, Maccabi seem more than capable of increasing their lead.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht Frankfurt55' Another lofted ball over the Eintracht defence releases Moanes Dabbur, but the linesman had his flag up for offside. Maccabi have just won a free-kick from a dangerous position...
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht Frankfurt50' Ouch! Nasty clash of heads there as Bamba Anderson and Itzhaki collide near the centre of the pitch. Thankfully, both players are back up fairly quickly and play will resume.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht FrankfurtSECOND HALF: We're back underway at the Bloomfield Stadium. Whatever Armin Veh said at half-time, it almost worked as Stefan Aigner goes within a whisker of reducing the deficit. His effort from inside the area just misses the target, however. Good start by the visitors at the start of this second half. The Bundesliga resumes tomorrow evening with a very tasty looking encounter from Lower Saxony, as local rivals Hannover 96 and Eintracht Braunschweig meet at the HDI Arena. Both sides could do with a victory from Matchday 12's opening game. Click here for our preview. SC Freiburg are also in action tonight. Christian Streich's team kick-off against Estoril Praia at 21:05 CET. Click here for our preview on the Black Forest club's all-important match in Portugal.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht FrankfurtHALF-TIME: It's been a shocking half of football from an Eintracht Frankfurt perspective. Their defending has left little to the imagination in Tel-Aviv and the home side have taken full advantage. Defeat tonight wouldn't be the end of the world for Frankfurt, but Veh will be far from happy with his players. I wouldn't want to be in that changing room right now!
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht Frankfurt42' Frankfurt almost pull a goal back. Srdjan Lakic pulls the trigger from the edge of the area and Juan Pablo is forced to make a smart save to deny the striker. Maccabi are able to clear the resulting corner from Aigner.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 3-0 Eintracht Frankfurt34’ GOAL! Actually, make that 'three-goal' lead. Poor defending again from Frankfurt as Zahavi escapes the Eagles defence. Zahavi is then allowed to turn on the edge of the area and Itzhaki picks up the loose ball, before delicately chipping the ball over Trapp for his second of the evening. It's starting to look like damage limitation for Frankfurt and we still have ten minutes of the first half remaining.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt30’ GOAL! Just after Constant Djakpa missed the target with a long-range free-kick, the hosts double their advantage at the Bloomfield Stadium. Omri Ben Harush crosses into the Frankfurt box from the left and Barak Itzhaki rises highest to direct a pin-point header past Trapp and into the corner of the net. That goal came slightly against the run of play, but Maccabi fully deserve their two-goal lead.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt25' Much better from Frankfurt: Alexander Meier picks up the ball on the edge of the area, before laying it off to Johannes Flum, who fires in a low shot from around 20 yards. Juan Pablo is equal to it, however. Moments later, Stefan Aigner's effort is also well held by the Maccabi keeper.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt22' Frankfurt seem a little rattled after that opening goal. Barak Itzhaki goes close to doubling the hosts' lead with a powerful effort from just outside the penalty area, but his shot curls just wide of the frame of the goal. The home fans are loving this!
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt14’ GOAL! The hosts take the lead in Israel and Armin Veh won't be a happy man when he sees this again. Nikola Mitrovic lobs the ball over the Eagles defence and Bamba Anderson is unable to clear, leaving Eran Zahavi to coolly slot the ball past the onrushing Kevin Trapp to open the scoring. Not the start Veh and his players had in mind!
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 0-0 Eintracht Frankfurt12’ The visitors continue to venture forward and, but are struggling to unlock the Maccabi defence so far. Stefan Aigner and Johannes Flum have both floated crosses into the home penalty area, but Juan Pablo in the Maccabi goal has been able to gather with ease.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 0-0 Eintracht Frankfurt10' The Eagles appear to have settled down now and have had several prolonged periods of possession. Constant Djakpa just whipped in a free-kick from the left which the hosts managed to clear, but the resulting corner came to nothing. Still goalless in Israel.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC 0-0 Eintracht Frankfurt4’ The home side have started brightly here, but Frankfurt are getting plenty of men behind the ball in the opening stages. Stefan Aigner just had a decent run down the right-hand side for Frankfurt, but he overran the ball and it trickled behind for a goal-kick. KICK-OFF: We're underway at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv. Both sets of fans are contributing to a cracking atmosphere inside the arena. Frankfurt, wearing their black and white away kit, will be kicking from left to right in the opening half. Can they get the point they need? Stay tuned to find out.
