A late Martin Fenin equaliser secured a point for Eintracht Frankfurt as they drew 1-1 with Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Both sides entered the game just a handful of points above the relegation zone, but in decent form, highlighted by Werder’s five-match unbeaten run heading into the match.

Frankfurt entered the game also on the back of improved form, having lost just one of their last four, and they were keen to record a victory in front of their home fans at the Commerzbank-Arena.

Frankfurt’s Maik Franz and Werder’s Denni Avdic were both given cautions inside the first five minutes as the match made a frenetic start, but neither side could convert half-chances into the game’s opening goal.

That had to wait until the second half, when Frankfurt ‘s Halil Altintop turned the ball into his own net after 58 minutes to give the visitors the lead.

As the game drew to a close, it looked like Bremen would claim all three points, until Fenin made his telling intervention with just seven minutes remaining.

The Czech substitute had not scored all season, but was on hand to convert Sebastian Jung’s assist and ensure that both sides would share the spoils.
