With a 3-1 victory at Hoffenheim on Sunday, Filip Kostic guided Eintracht Frankfurt back to fourth in the Bundesliga, as the day’s late match was called off due to a strong snowstorm sweeping through Germany.

The match between Arminia Bielefeld and Werder Bremen was called off hours before kickoff.

As Frankfurt extended their unbeaten streak to nine games and stayed one point ahead of Bayer Leverkusen in the last qualification place for the Champions League, Kostic scored one goal and set up the other two.

In the 15th minute, the Serbian midfielder broke the deadlock, finishing off brilliantly from a difficult angle after Amin Younes played down the left.

As the visitors kept up the pressure, Martin Hinteregger headed over shortly afterward. In response, Hoffenheim could give nothing.

Coach Sebastian Hoeneß replied at the break with two changes, getting midfielder Pavel Kaderabek and striker Ihlas Bebou on board.

It took only a minute for the latter to equalize. Andrej Kramaric sent Bebou through and, before shooting inside the right corner, he eluded Makoto Hasebe and then Hinteregger.

When his shot fizzed past the post shortly afterward, Ishak Belfodil nearly put Hoffenheim ahead.

But Kostic was not completed. The 28-year-old sent Evan Ndicka in a free-kick to lead the visitors’ second goal in the 62nd, two minutes before crossing for André Silva, who finished 3-1.

This year, Frankfurt is still the best team in the league. Team Adi Hutter earned 19 out of a possible 21 points, the only blip being a 2-2 draw on 20 January at Freiburg.
