Bundesliga: Eintracht Frankfurt 1 Greuther Fuerth 1

3 November 2012 01:04

Eintracht Frankfurt missed the opportunity to move into second in the Bundesliga after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Greuther Fuerth.

Armin Veh's side had the chance to move within two points of league leaders Bayern Munich, but a 53rd-minute goal from Zoltan Stieber ensured the points were shared on Friday.

Eintracht went ahead with less than a minute played at Commerzbank-Arena when Alexander Meier found the back of the net.

Sebastian Rode had the initial chance to open the scoring but Meier was on hand to convert the rebound on 25 seconds for his seventh goal of the season.

Meier was in the thick of the action 11 minutes later after playing in Takashi Inui, but the Japanese international failed to extend the hosts' lead with a tame effort.

Fuerth slowly began to find their feet and came close to levelling proceedings through Gerald Asamoah but the former Schalke striker fluffed his lines.

However, the visitors eventually equalised eight minutes into the second half through Stieber after the Hungarian midfielder completed a swift counter-attack with a delightful chip over goalkeeper Kevin Trapp.

Fuerth were denied maximum points following a string of saves from Trapp late on but the draw was enough to move Fuerth off the bottom of the table, while Eintracht remain third – five points clear of defending champions Borussia Dortmund.
