Sports Mole provides live text coverage of Eintracht Frankfurt's Bundesliga clash with Greuther Furth at the Commerzbank-Arena.

Good evening and welcome to Sports Mole's live text coverage of Eintracht Frankfurt's Bundesliga clash with Greuther Furth at the Commerzbank-Arena.

Both sides were promoted to the German top flight last season, however they are already 13 points apart this term after making very different starts.

Frankfurt are third in the table and unbeaten at home, while Furth are rock bottom and winless in seven.

In-form Frankfurt forward Alexander Meier will be looking to continue his fine goalscoring run of four goals in as many games.

7.18pmHere are the teams, starting with the hosts:-

7.19pmEintracht Frankfurt: Kevin Trapp; Vadim Demidov, Bastian Oczipka, Anderson, Sebastian Jung; Takashi Inui, Stefan Aigner, Sebastian Rode, Pirmin Schwegler; Olivier Occean, Alexander Meier

7.20pmFrankfurt Subs: Oka Nikolov, Heiko Butscher, Stefano Celozzi, Martin Lanig, Benjamin Kohler, Erwin Hoffer, Karim Matmour

7.21pmGreuther Furth: Max Grun; Mergim Mavraj, Heinrich Schmidtgal, Bernd Nehrig, Thomas Kleine; Stephan Furstner, Milorad Pekovic, Zoltan Stieber, Sercan Sararer; Gerald Asamoah, Edgar Prib

7.22pmFurth Subs: Wolfgang Hesl, Lasse Sobiech, Michael Hefele, Baba Rahman, Tobias Mikkelsen, Christopher Nothe, Eduardo Goncalves de Oliveira

7.28pmThe players are on the pitch and kick-off is moments away.

0minFrankfurt kick-off and we are underway.

1minGOAL! Frankfurt 1-0 Greuther Furth

1minWith just 33 seconds on the clock, the hosts lead. Alexander Meier extends his hotstreak to five goals in five games with a low drive from 18 yards!

7minFrankfurt win a corner kick, as the ball skids behind off Furstner.

8minThe set piece is poor and easily cleared.

9minMeier has an ambitious attempt from long range, which is well blocked.

10minDemidov puts the ball behind and Furth have a corner.

11minFrankfurt clear.

15minAsamoah is brought down by Demidov - Furth have a free kick 30 yards from goal.

16minSchmidtgal goes for goal, but the wall does its job and deflects the ball wide for a corner.

17minThe referee awards Frankfurt a free kick for a foul on the goalkeeper.

20minFurth have been the better side since they conceded. The visitors are dominating possession.

23minChance for Furth! Prib forces a good save out of Trapp with a close-range header.

27minChance for Furth! A lazy backpass puts Asamoah in behind the hosts' defence. Trapp comes sliding out and wins the ball before it is desperately hacked clear.

34minChance for Frankfurt! Meier flicks on into the path of Occean, who bustles his way beyond one defender before being denied a shot on goal by a last-ditch tackle from Nehrig.

36minChance for Frankfurt! Meier's volley from 10 yards is blocked, but the ball falls to Occean, who bends a shot towards the top right corner. Tipped wide by Grun.

37minThe corner is wasted - again!

42minNehrig goes in late on Oczipka and the Furth defender is fortunate not to receive a yellow card.

43minOccean makes a powerful run down the left and Frankfurt are rewarded with a corner kick.

44minFrankfurt take the corner short and it is cleared without even threatening to enter the penalty area. The standard of set pieces has been woeful thus far.

Half-timeHT: Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 Greuther Furth

8.20pmOn balance, the hosts are probably just about worthy of their narrow lead. Meier fired them in front after 33 seconds and, although Furth then dominated the possession for a 15-20-minute spell, Frankfurt's dynamic front two have looked too hot to handle and could have easily doubled the lead on three occasions.

8.29pmThe players return from the dressing rooms for the second half, as heavy rain begins to fall in Frankfurt.

46minFurth get the second half underway.

47minNeither manager has made any changes during the interval.

48minNehrig cleverly wins a free kick for Furth in a dangerous position near the right corner flag.

49minThe ball is whipped in left-footed and Trapp does well to punch clear.

53minGoal! Eintracht Frankfurt 1-1 Greuther Furth

53minFurth hit Frankfurt with a devastating four-pass counter attack, which ends with Prib sliding the ball into the path of Zoltan Stieber, who chips the goalkeeper from 20 yards. Great goal.

56minSubstitution for Frankfurt: Karim Matmour replaces Takashi Inui.

58minChance for Furth! A long goal kick from Grun finds its way to Asamoah, who is denied from 10 yards by an athletic save from Trapp. Corner.

59minTrapp continues to impress, confidently gathering the high corner among a host of bodies.

65minChance for Frankfurt! Rode fires narrowly over the crossbar with a rushed effort from 18 yards.

67minThe referee ends his amnesty on late tackles and shows Sebastian Jung a yellow card for a poor challenge on Sararer.

68minPirmin Schwegler joins his teammate in the book, after diving in late on Pekovic.

78minChance for Frankfurt! Schwegler fires in a low ball across goal from the left and Occean just fails to get a touch on it.

80minGerald Asamoah becomes the fourth player to be shown a yellow card - for a poor and needless tackle on Schwegler.

86minHuge chance for Furth! Sararer's initial effort is parried straight back to him, but he fires high and wide from just six yards out.

90minThe fourth official indicates two minutes of time added on.
