Everything on the line
This battle between the Argentinian and Ronnow is enthralling, and it is the latter who again comes out on top, comfortably holding the striker's flick-on.
Alario is the next to test Ronnow, who again does what is necessary to keep his clean sheet intact.
A Philipp Max free-kick into the box evades everyone other than Ronnow, who pushes to safety.
Behrens doubles Union's lead!
Union substitute Behrens surely gives his team all three points! The striker does well to get into the penalty area, and he puts enough on his shot to fire it through Trapp's legs despite the goalkeeper's best efforts.
Lucas Alario, who recently replaced Borre, miskews a shot from close range, giving Ronnow an ultimately simple save.
Almost for Becker!
Frankfurt are beginning to swarm forward, giving Union plenty of space to play in behind. Becker thinks he has ended his 10-game Bundesliga run without a goal as he slots beyond Trapp after picking the ball up just past the halfway line, but he is narrowly offside and the goal is therefore chalked off.
Situation No goal
Decision No goal
Frankfurt must be more effective
Kolo Muani fires over!
Another Kolo Muani effort now, although his wild shot from a tight angle was never troubling Ronnow.
Plenty to ponder
Union take the lead from the set-piece! The ball falls rather fortunately to Khedira in the six-yard box, and he buries with aplomb to put his side in front. Work for Frankfurt to do now.
A cross almost catches Trapp cold, but he pushes over the bar for a corner.
The second half begins!
Frankfurt turning the screw
Frankfurt are eager to go into the interval header. First, Kamada's shot on the stretch is blocked, before Kolo Muani heads wide once more from the subsequent corner.
Ronnow is this time equal to a Borre attempt after good work from Kolo Muani.
Frankfurt causing more problems
A fierce drive from Seguin is parried away by Kevin Trapp. Better from Union.
Situation No penalty
Decision No penalty
5 minutes to go
Can either side grab a goal before the half-time whistle?
Kolo Muani again
The striker is in loads of space in the penalty area, but he gets too much on his free header as he directs the ball over the crossbar. Getting closer and closer!
Union have already given away possession a few times in dangerous areas. They need to be careful - Frankfurt are a side that can quickly punish you.
Fredrik Ronnow needs to be alert to stop Kamada from close range. Glasner will be happy with what he has seen from his players up until now.
Another goal for Kolo Muani?
Both teams don't want to give anything to their opponents, with each 50-50 ball being strongly contested.
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
Haberer, one of those five replacements from Thursday, tries his luck from distance, and he isn't too far away!
The away team have clearly created the best chances so far.
Frankfurt ahead on xG
Lenz almost comes back to haunt his former employers, but he can't control his effort. 'Die Adler' are starting to take control of this match.
Frankfurt danger man Kolo Muani has a huge opportunity to put his side ahead, but his glancing header flashes wide of the near post.
We often so often seen Becker show a clean pair of heels to defenders before firing into the opposite corner, but this time, he pulls a shot a little too much.
Union start positively
The side from the capital don't appear to be suffering from a Europa League hangover as they push forward in search of the opener.
Khedira fires over
A chance for the hosts, but Khedira can't keep his effort down.
Frankfurt looking to strike early
Frankfurt work their way into a dangerous position, but Borre's shot at the near post is blocked.
And we're off!
Frankfurt get us underway!
A full Alte Försterei
Not long to go
Less than 10 minutes now until this game kicks off!
This is the first of two fixtures between the two sides over the coming weeks, with the duo facing off in the quarter-finals of the DFB-Cup at the start of April. The teams have only met on nine previous occasions, with Frankfurt winning six times. Union, meanwhile, have prevailed twice, most recently towards the end of last season as they recorded a 2-0 victory.
