Eintracht Frankfurt's Ajdin Hrustic scored an 86th-minute goal to rescue a 1-1 draw against visiting Mainz 05 on Sunday and retain some hope of a top-four finish and a spot in next season's Champions League.
Karim Onisiwo rifled in a low shot in the 11th minute to put Mainz in front against their lacklustre hosts.
Frankfurt rarely threatened and had to wait until five minutes from the end when Australian Hrustic's first shot was blocked but the midfielder, lying on the ground, spectacularly chipped his rebound over the keeper for the equaliser.
