Bayer Leverkusen lost ground on leaders Bayern Munich as they fell to their first home defeat of the season in the Bundesliga against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Midfielder Marco Russ headed in the only goal, with Joselu also missing an injury-time penalty for the visitors.

Ex-Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia's side had reached the knockout stages of the Champions League in midweek.

But they now find themselves seven points behind Bayern, in second place in the table after the loss.

Russ's effort on the hour-mark saw Europa League knockout stage qualifiers Eintracht  claim their first domestic league victory in 10 matches. This poor form means they remain only one place, and three points, above the relegation play-off spot.

Leverkusen had pushed for an equaliser at the death, with their nine-goal top scorer Stefan Kiessling and Omer Toprak wasting opportunities before they conceded a penalty when they were caught on the counter-attack.

Goalkeeper Bernd Leno denied former Real Madrid youngster Joselu from the spot, but the final whistle went seconds later to confirm a shock loss for Hyypia's men against the Bundesliga strugglers.

Their only other home loss this term came in the Champions League group stage, when they were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester United.
