FC Köln came from behind to secure their first Bundesliga point of the season as they played out a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt at the RheinEnergieStadion on Sunday.


Frankfurt could have moved level with RB Leipzig at the top of the table with a win, but were forced to settle for a draw.

André Silva sent the guests ahead from the penalty spot just before the break after Sebastiaan Bornauw brought down Daichi Kamada in the box.

After Kamada missed a glorious chance to get on the scoresheet himself in the beginning of the second half, Duda found the equaliser in the 52nd minute, smashing the ball past Kevin Trapp for his first goal in a Köln shirt after he was set up by Kingsley Ehzibue.

The result means Frankfurt climb to fourth while FC Köln sit 16th prior to the clash between bottom side Schalke 04 and Union Berlin at Veltins-Arena.
