It only lasted seven minutes as Ondrej Duda equalised with a fine shot in what was the host's first chance of the entire game in the 52nd minute.

Frankfurt, unbeaten in the league this season, was the livelier team and both Daichi Kamada and Almamy Toure came close several times.

Duda had a rare good chance for the host but his diving header from 12 metres was tipped wide by keeper Kevin Trapp.

The result left Frankfurt in fourth place on eight points. For Cologne, it was the first point of the season, but kept it in 16th place.
