A late goal now would almost certainly steal all three points. Leipzig still looking most likely.
ALMOST FOR POULSEN!
Forsberg's corner from the left curls all the way to the back post and Poulsen has made the perfect run to meet it. He slides to get a touch on the ball, but sends the ball wide of goal.
The Frankfurt captain brings down Kluivert and he's in the book now too.
Will Dost be the man to win this one for Frankfurt as he comes on for Silva?
SILVA GOES CLOSE!
Barkok's perfect through ball finds Silva heading into the Leipzig box and he flicks it at goal just ahead of Konate's challenge. Gulacsi beats it away and Sabitzer clears. This one could go either way here.
CHANCES FEW AND FAR BETWEEN
It's a game of cat and mouse now as we approach the final 15 minutes. Frankfurt not forcing things forward too much, not wanting to make mistakes and leave space behind them. Meanwhile, Leipzig are trying to be patient and work for a perfect chance. Neither are totally satisfied.

HOW WILL FRANKFURT RESPOIND?
The home side's lead is no more, but they have begun to respond to it well here. Kostic will be the key man for them if they do take the lead once again with most of the Eagles' attacking play flying down the left flank.
The Frankfurt midfielder is booked as he brings down Konate.
THE MAGIC TOUCH!
Leipzig are level thanks to a brilliant touch from Poulsen. Angelino is found out on the left and is afforded too much time to pick his spot with a cross. Poulsen is on the charge and meets it with a lovely touch with the outside of his right foot, on the volley, to flick it into the far top corner.
PRESSING AND PRESSING
A bright start to this second half from Leipzig. Most of the action has been down the left flank with Angelino and Nkunku as well. Can they find what they've been missing so far and get that finishing touch in front of goal.
DURM IN THE BOOK
The Frankfurt right midfielder takes a yellow card for a foul on Kampl.
KOSTIC SO CLOSE!
The Serb dribbles his way into the Leipzig box down the left with space ahead of him and shoots low at the near post. Gulacsi does well to stand strong and save with his right foot.
SECOND HALF UNDERWAY!
Three changes at the break for Leipzig with Poulsen, Forsberg and Orban all on for Sorloth, Olmo and Upamecano.
A high foot from the Spaniard earns Olmo the second yellow card of the game.
FRANKFURT IN FRONT!
In his first start of the season, Barkok has Frankfurt ahead before the break. A long ball from N'Dicka's free-kick is left to bounce by the Leipzig defence and Barkok chases onto it ahead of Angelino before slotting home across goal past Konate and Gulacsi.
Just a marginal majority of possession so far for Leipzig, but they've had twice as many attempts on goal as Frankfurt through this first half so far.
LEIPZIG DOING MORE WITH THE BALL
ANGELINO ON THE VOLLEY!
Olmo clips a cross from right to left into the Frankfurt box and Angelino is on the end of it and fires a volley low at goal. It bounces just ahead of Trapp and he parries it wide.
KAMADA FIRES WIDE
Another counter chance for Frankfurt as Kostic and Kamada exchange a lovely one-two to send the Serb down the left. His low cross is cut-out by Kampl, but falls to Kamada on the edge. He takes a first-time shot and once again slices it wide on his left foot. No shooting boots on today so far for the Japanese international.
LEIPZIG ON TOP
Frankfurt have had a few minutes to catch their breath in defence with possession, but Leipzig still remain on top in this game. When they win the ball in the home side's half, Nagelsmann's side are breaking forward quickly and proving too hot to handle. The only thing lacking so far is that finishing touch.

NO WAY THROUGH ADAMS AND LEIPZIG

A corner swings in from Kostic and Hinteregger heads it at goal, but just over the Leipzig crossbar. A rare chance for Frankfurt in this first half so far.
LEIPZIG LOOKING MORE LIKELY
More tidy interplay down the right sees a cross swing in from Haidara and Olmo glances a header just wide. Leipzig have taken some control of this game in the last 10 minutes or so, but aren't forcing anything forward so far.
OPENING FOR OLMO!
A first big chance for Leipzig as Nkunku plays Olmo into the Frankfurt penalty area. He flicks the ball over Trapp and N'Dicka, but it takes a touch on its way and lands on the roof of the net.
WORKING THEIR WAY
Tidy work from Sorloth as he latches onto a pass down the left and immediately fires the ball low across goal. Haidara is close to getting on the end of it, but it's stolen away from him by Hinteregger.
A very interesting role for the USMNT man here. He's lining up at right-back but is pushing into central midfield alongside Kampl and Sabitzer when Leipzig have the ball going forward. Interesting tactics once again from Nagelsmann.
The first booking for the game comes for the Frenchman after a late challenge on Durm.
BIG CHANCE FOR KAMADA!
The first chance of the game for either side as the ball is put into the Leipzig box and Kamada is onto it. He can turn and shoot on the half-volley, but slices at his effort on his left foot and it bounces wide of the mark.
BACK FOUR FOR LEIPZIG
It looks to be a four-man defence indeed for Leipzig, with Adams at right-back and Angelino on the other side. Sabitzer and Kampl are together in central midfield with Haidara out on the right flank.
AWAY WE GO!
The ball is rolling in Frankfurt...
KICK-OFF COMING UP!
The first of our Saturday night double-header is just minutes away. Frankfurt hosting Leipzig, before Hertha welcome Dortmund to the capital later this evening. Hold onto your hats.

FRANKFURT TEAM NEWS
There's a few unexpected faces in Adi Hütter's line-up returning from the international break. Erik Durm starts ahead of Almamy Toure on the right, while Aymen Barkok is alongside Daichi Kamada in attacking midfield behind lone striker Andre Silva. Meanwhile, Makoto Hasebe is only on the bench with Evan N'Dick preferred on the left of Frankfurt's three-man defence. Filip Kostic is also back after injury to boost Frankfurt's hopes for this evening.
LEIPZIG TEAM NEWS
Julian Nagelsmann will be delighted to have his squad return from international duty without any scratches, and the Leipzig has even been able to recall a previously injured man. Upamecano was injured in the game against Freiburg last time out but returns today. Elsewhere Tyler Adams starts in what could be a central defensive role for the UMSNT star. Alexander Sorloth starts ahead of Yussuf Poulsen to lead the attack.
WATCH: TAKING A LOOK
INCENTIVE FOR LEIPZIG
Bayern Munich's draw at home to Werder Bremen means that RB Leipzig have the chance - with a win today - to go level on points with Bayern atop the Bundesliga table. This is a venue, however, that Leipzig have never avoided defeat in.
FRANKFURT STARTING XI!
Trapp - Abraham (c), Hinteregger, N'Dicka - Durm, Sow, Ilsanker, Kostic - Kamada, Barkok - Silva
Schubert, Dost, Zuber, Toure, Hasebe, Chandler, da Costa, Kohr, Tuta
LEIPZIG STARTING XI!
Gulacsi - Konate, Adams, Upamecano - Haidara, Sabitzer (c), Kampl, Angelino - Olmo, Nkunku - Sorloth
Martinez, Orban, Poulsen, Forsberg, Samardzic, Kluivert, Henrichs, Borkowski, Wosz
CAN FRANKFURT GET BACK ON TRACK?
The Eagles are without a win in four games, dating back to early October, following draws with Cologne, Bremen and Stuttgart, and a heavy defeat away to Bayern. They're still safely in mid-table on 10 points, but could do with a victory to keep them in the hunt for the European places.
ROTATION FROM NAGELSMANN?
With a big game coming up away to Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, keeping players fresh could be an issue to Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann here. Halstenberg, Klostermann, Laimer, Mukiele and Hwang are all definitely out, while centre-backs Orban and Upamecano trained individually this week following knocks.
LEIPZIG'S BOGEY TEAM
These sides have played each other nine times so far, with an even split of three wins for each, and three draws. Leipzig have not yet managed to triumph in Frankfurt though, drawing two and losing three. They slipped to a 2-0 reverse on their most recent visit, back in January earlier this year.
BACK WITH A BANG
After two weeks of international football we've got a mega line-up of fixtures today, with this cracker sandwiched between the flurry of early games and the later meeting between Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund. Don't go anywhere!
