First half highlights:
9th minute: Goal for Frankfurt. Eintracht push forward and win a corner, which is taken short and laid off for Filip Kostic to whip the ball into the box. André Silva rises highest and directs a powerful header past Pavlenka to give the visitors an early lead.
18th minute: Silva is hunting for a second as he connects with a pass and shoots from close range, but it’s safely collected by Jiri Pavlenka.
19th minute: André Silva is again causing the Werder defence problems as he wins a free kick in a dangerous area on the edge of the box. Filip Kostic steps up to take it but his curling drive flies wide of the target.
26th minute: Romano Schmid pushes forward and is brought down on the edge of the Frankfurt area. It falls to Milot Rashica to take it and he gets a great connection on it, but it’s straight at the goalkeeper.
29th minute: Josh Sargent has the ball in the net for Werder, but his celebrations are brought to a premature end by the linesman’s flag. Getting close to an equaliser!
35th minute: Milot Rashica wins himself space with a great touch in the Frankfurt box, before cutting inside and slamming an effort off the crossbar! So close!
40th minute: Maxi Eggestein finds Romano Schmid with a good pass, and the Austrian chips an effort in on goal but it’s blocked by a combination of Hasebe and Trapp.
