Freiburg forward Michael Gregoritsch scored in the last minute to snatch his home side a 3-3 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

Two goals from Ansgar Knauff, both set up by the impressive Omar Marmoush who also got on the scoresheet, had Frankfurt on course for three points.

The visitors however failed to clear a corner and the 1.93-metre-tall Gregoritsch headed past Kevin Trapp to level the scores for Freiburg for the third and final time.

A frustrated Trapp told DAZN "we're shooting ourselves in the foot".

"It went back and forth, which is a shame for us. We could have taken more out of it."

Frankfurt's Marmoush scored first, but Freiburg's Ritsu Doan hit back just three minutes later on the half-hour mark.

Marmoush's superb pass allowed Knauff to score on the counter but the match was level again by half-time thanks to a penalty from Italy midfielder Vincenzo Grifo.

Knauff again put Frankfurt in front after 72 minutes before Gregoritsch came to the rescue.

In another match which suffered interruptions as fans threw objects on the pitch in a protest against a planned Bundesliga investment deal, Knauff then saved Frankfurt in the ninth minute of added time when he cleared a bouncing ball off the line, just millimetres from the goal.

The point moves Frankfurt four clear of Werder Bremen in sixth-place, the last European spot.

In Sunday's late game, Bayern Munich play at Bochum, hoping to make up ground on league leaders Bayer Leverkusen, who sit eight points clear.

Well beaten at Leverkusen last week and having tasted defeat away at Lazio on Wednesday, Bayern have not lost three matches in a row since 2015.
