Frankfurt maintain push for European place

Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 Energie Cottbus

FRANKFURT, March 20 (Bundesliga) - Eintracht Frankfurt maintained their push for European football next season with a come-from-behind win over strugglers Energie Cottbus on Thursday.

Following on from their stunning victory over Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich last weekend, Cottbus took the lead at the Commerzbank Arena thanks to Timo Rost's strike shortly after the interval.

But the hosts restored parity through substitute Caio dos Santos before Marco Russ grabbed the decisive goal to secure three points for Eintracht and move them up to sixth, two points behind Schalke who occupy the final UEFA Cup place.

Cottbus remain just one place above the drop zone however, and are also the only team yet to win away from home in the top flight this season.

Eintracht had the first real chance of the match after 15 minutes when visiting goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel was called upon to stop a long-range strike from Ioannis Amanatidis.

The Greek striker also sent a header over the bar soon after while team-mate Martin Fenin failed to get his shot beyond Tremmel.

Amanatidis continued to waste chances firing wide of the mark in the 39th minute before Marcus Weissenberger also missed the target from 25 yards.

Home keeper Oka Nikolov saw his first action shortly before the interval, catching Ervin Skela's weak shot.

But Nikolov was caught napping three minutes into the second half when Rost struck a feeble 30-yard effort which somehow trickled past the custodian and into the net.

The goal sparked Eintracht to life and Caio pulled the home side level after 59 minutes. The Brazilian midfielder picked up a pass from Fenin before powering the ball home from 18 yards.

Russ then fired the hosts in front just five minutes later, with Caio turning provider for the defender to fire in a neat shot from the centre of the area.

Michal Papadopulos almost pulled Cottbus level with a header which skimmed the crossbar, while Jiayi Shao had one last chance for the visitors moments before the final whistle but could only push his shot past the left post.
