Result: Eintracht Frankfurt cruise to APOEL win

Eintracht Frankfurt keep their 100% Europa League record alive with a comfortable 3-0 win over APOEL.

Eintracht Frankfurt have taken control of Group F in the Europa League courtesy of a comfortable 3-0 win over APOEL this evening.

The visitors came within inches of breaking the deadlock after just seven minutes when Vaclav Kadlec squeezed Johannes Flum's knock-down past the keeper, only for his effort to be cleared off the line.

Frankfurt did eventually take the lead shortly before the half-hour mark when Sebastian Jung's cross was inadvertently diverted into his own net by Nektarios Alexandrou.

The Bundesliga side doubled their lead in the 59th minute when Srdjan Lakic exchanged passes with Kadlec before firing his shot between the keeper's legs.

The two-goal lead soon became 3-0 as Tranquillo Barnetta's quick free kick caught the defence napping and allowed Jung to race through and slide his effort under the keeper.

The hosts had a glorious chance to pull a consolation goal back in the closing stages when Vinicius did well to find Selim Benachour, but the Tunisian failed to beat Kevin Trapp as Frankfurt made it two 3-0 wins in a row in the competition.

Frankfurt's Marco Russ is congratulated by team mates after scoring his team's second goal against Bordeaux during their Europa League group match on September 19, 2013
