Meier at the double as Frankfurt down Freiburg

Eintracht Frankfurt continued their superb start to the season as Alexander Meier's double helped them come back to defeat SC Freiburg, while 1. FSV Mainz 05 also won.

Eintracht Frankfurt's superb start continued as they came from behind to defeat SC Freiburg 2-1 and move two points behind leaders FC Bayern München, while 1. FSV Mainz 05 got a first away win of the Bundesliga season.

After dropping their first points of the campaign in a 3-3 draw with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, Armin Veh's men returned to winning ways despite falling behind to Max Kruse's close-range finish on 50 minutes. Alexander Meier struck twice in six minutes to turn the game around, his first a spectacular volley from Bastian Oczipka's cross and his second a header, before Karim Guédé was sent off for the visitors in added time.

First-half efforts from Júnior Díaz and Ádám Szalai were enough to seal victory for Mainz at VfL Wolfsburg, meanwhile, the 2-0 victory moving Mainz up to 11th and leaving their hosts winless since the opening day of the season and third from bottom on five points.
