Maccabi Tel Aviv beat Eintracht Frankfurt in Group F after surviving a second-half comeback.

Maccabi Tel Aviv have secured a 4-2 win against Eintracht Frankfurt despite a second-half comeback from the German side.

Eran Zahavi had the first chance of the night for the home side, curling in a free kick that Kevin Trapp was able to hold.

However, Zahavi did open the scoring with his next chance. The ball dropped to him after Stephan Schrock had failed to clear and the striker slotted in.

Frankfurt were unable to produce an immediate response to falling behind and it was Maccabi who had the next shot at goal, Barak Itzhaki firing over from 25 yards.

Itzhaki wasn't to be denied, however, as he headed in a left-wing cross to double Maccabi's advantage. The celebrations had barely finished when Itzhaki grabbed his second of the night with a chip over Trapp after Zahavi had been crowded out.

Frankfurt failed to produce much of note in the Maccabi half. Then Zahavi almost got in on goal but was denied by the away defence.

Srdjan Lakic brought the visitors back into the game with a header that found its way under the goalkeeper and into the net.

Minutes later and Armin Veh's team suddenly had their second of the night, this time from the penalty spot as Alexander Meier rolled the ball in.

However, Frankfurt were unable to find an equaliser and Zahavi chipped in a fourth for the home side in stoppage time.
