Result: Werder Bremen battle to win over Eintracht Frankfurt

Davie Selke scores the only goal of the game as Werder Bremen boost their Europa League bid with a 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Werder Bremen moved to within a point of the Europa League qualification places with a 1-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Weserstadion.

Both sides were looking to be confident in the early stages, but chances were difficult to find until the hosts started to dominate possession midway through the first half.

It could have been a far more comfortable afternoon for Bremen had it not been for Kevin Trapp, who made a fine save to deny Theodor Gebre Selassie before the home side threatened again when Philipp Bargfrede fired just wide before the interval.

Trapp came to the rescue to deny Gebre Selassie once again early in the second half, after only managing to parry a low strike from Izet Hajrovic.

Long spells of pressure eventually produced a breakthrough for Bremen as they snatched the lead through Davie Selke, who converted from close range as Frankfurt failed to clear a corner.

Selke came close to scoring a second when his powerful strike rattled the crossbar, and Franco Di Santo could only shoot wide from the rebound.

However, the miss would not come back to haunt Bremen as Frankfurt struggled to build any pressure in an uneventful end to the Bundesliga match.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
