Berlin:

Relegation-threatened Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt shared the points with a 1-1 draw on Friday night in Frankfurt to keep both teams above the Bundesliga's bottom three.

Guests Bremen took the lead when Frankfurt striker Halil Altrintop -- twin brother of Bayern Munich midfielder Hamit -- turned the ball into his own net under pressure from Werder striker Sandro Wagner on 58 minutes.

After Frankfurt striker Theofanis Gekas squandered a golden chance to head into an empty net, the hosts equalised when Czech Republic striker Martin Fenin headed home with seven minutes left.

The draw leaves Bremen 12th and six points from the bottom three with five games left this season, while Frankfurt are just one place below them and five points from the drop zone.
