Watch Matchday 28 highlights between Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt.

ANNOUNCER: Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac is plotting a Champions League place for the first time in nearly 60 years, but Florian Kohfeldt's Bremen were in form, too, having won five of their last seven. Frankfurt made the quicker start, but couldn't find a breakthrough, and it was Bremen who went in front when Thomas Delaney had time and space to cross, and Zlatko Junuzovic arrived bang on cue, albeit with the help of a deflection. The ball ricocheting in via Makoto Hasebe, but no doubt the Austrian's goal, just the skipper's second of the season.

Max Kruse was instrumental in everything Bremen were doing in the final third, and another deflection on his clever effort forced Lukás Hrádecky into an excellent save. Kruse still an outside contender for Germany's World Cup squad. Jirí Pevlenka busy at the other end, too, pushing away Kevin-Prince Boateng's cross, and then reacting smartly to keep out Marco Russ's follow-up. 1-0 at the break. Is that what they call a Bremen Easter bonnet?

Frankfurt came out firing in the second half, and were soon level. An assist of the season contender from Kevin-Prince Boateng, and a very tidy strike from Luka Jovic. Quite brilliant from Ghanaian, though. A back heel with both pace and height, and it got the finish it deserved.

At inside three minutes, Frankfurt might have been ahead. Marco Fabián sent Jovic racing clear, but this time the Serbian couldn't beat Pavlenka. That might have proved decisive, but out of nothing, Bremen won it 11 minutes from time.

A hopeful cross skimmed off David Abraham's head, and the usually-reliable Hrádecky had one of those nightmare goalkeeping moments. Maybe he was just a fraction too far off his line, or misjudged the trajectory, but you'd simply never expect that kind of a schoolboy error. So Frankfurt's Champion League hopes stalled for now. Werder surely safe from the drop. They finish 2-1, Bremen.
