Eintracht Frankfurt came from behind to beat Werder Bremen 2-1 and move ahead of their opponents in the Bundesliga.

Claudio Pizarro gave Bremen the lead with his second league goal of the season, and one which was well worth waiting for. The Peruvian - the Bundesliga's all-time top foreign goalscorer - struck the ball on the half-volley from the edge of the area, finding the bottom left-hand corner of Lukas Hradecky's goal in the 29th minute.

Bremen's lead lasted little over a minute, though, before Alexander Meier nodded Frankfurt level from close range.

Stefan Aigner's first goal of the season - a delicate lob over Felix Wiedwald - put the hosts in front early in the second half, and they held on to climb above Bremen and away from immediate relegation danger.
