Kassim Adams sees red despite assist for Hoffenheim in defeat to Frankfurt

Ghana defender Kassim Nuhu Adams was shown a red card as Eintracht Frankfurt came from behind to beat TSG Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

The 23-year old was giving his marching orders in the 65 minute after a second bookable offence.

Eintracht went ahead through Filip Kostic's in-swinging free-kick, which took a nick off Ante Rebic on its way past Oliver Baumann.

Hoffenheim's goalkeeper had to be alert to keep out Sebastian Rode, but Hoffenheim gave as good as they got and were rewarded when Joelinton stuck out a boot to convert substitute Adam Szalai's sensational back heel from two yards out.

Kasim Adams might have gone on to claim the man-of-the-match award after setting up Ishak Belfodil for a sublime second goal, but the Hoffenheim defender collected a second yellow card moments later to hand the initiative back to Frankfurt.

The pressure was relentless as Baumann thwarted Makoto Hasebe and Mijat Gacinovic volleyed wide, before Sebastien Haller met Gacinovic's cross to level late on.

Substitute Goncalo Paciencia missed a glorious opening, but made amends in the fifth minute of added time, powering in from Haller to complete a dramatic turnaround.
