Eintracht Frankfurt Vs. Hamburg, 2012 Bundesliga: Frankfurt Continue Stellar Form

Eintracht Frankfurt moved back to second in the table with a 3-2 victory against Hamburg in Sunday's late match.

Takashi Inui opened the scoring in the 13th minute for Frankfurt. He split two defenders and curled his shot around Rene Adler. Olivier Occean doubled the lead just five minutes later knocking a loose ball after a corner past Adler.

Still trying to figure out why he plays Michael Mancienne, Thorsten Fink substituted him for Dennis Diekmeier after only 33 minutes. Yes. He was that bad.

Hamburg received some good news and bad news just before the half. The good news: Rafael van der Vaart's corner was headed back into the area by Artjoms Rudnevs, and Heiko Westermann scored to make it 2-1. The bad news: Petr Jiracek was sent off for a bad tackle on Anderson.

Stefan Aigner made it 3-1 after halftime with an excellent chip over Adler. Ten-man Hamburg would pull one back ten minutes later when van der Vaart found Heung-Min Son. He rounded Kevin Trapp and put his shot in the back of the net.

Hamburg sit second from bottom and, quite frankly, are just lucky that Hoffenheim are hot garbage.
