Top-four hopefuls Eintracht fell Fürth

Eintracht Frankfurt boosted their hopes of playing UEFA Champions League football next season with a 3-2 win at SpVgg Greuther Fürth, after 1. FC Nürnberg held VfL Wolfsburg 2-2.

Eintracht Frankfurt reignited their campaign to qualify for the UEFA Champions League by defeating bottom-of-the-table SpVgg Greuther Fürth 3-2 to end a six-game winless streak in the Bundesliga.

Without a victory since their 2 February success against Hamburger SV, Armin Veh's side appeared to be losing ground in the race to make the top four, and things did not start well on Sunday as Nikola Djurdić headed in from close range with just two minutes on the clock.

Takashi Inui drew things level with a neat finish from the edge of the area on 13 minutes, before Stefan Aigner and Alexander Meier completed the comeback after the break, although Sercan Sararer's strike made for a nervy finish. The 3-2 win leaves Frankfurt trailing fourth-placed FC Schalke 04 on goals scored alone, with both sides holding 42 points and the same goal difference.

Elsewhere, 1. FC Nürnberg remain one position and three points above 12th-placed VfL Wolfsburg after clawing back a two-goal deficit to earn a point against their former coach's side. Dieter Hecking appeared set to guide Die Wölfe to victory against the side he left in December after Diego and Ivica Olić put the hosts 2-0 up inside 27 minutes. However, Timmy Simons struck a brilliant volley from distance just after the hour and Per Nilsson turned in moments later to earn a point.
