FRANKFURT, September 30 (Bundesliga) -Hamburg twice fought back from behind to secure a hard-earned draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday but results elsewhere mean Thomas Doll's side are now the only winless side in the top flight.
Alexander Meier, who was sold by Hamburg in 2004 without playing a single game, opened the scoring for Frankfurt after 36 minutes from close range after a Benjamin Kohler free-kick wreaked havoc.
The visitors hit back with Danijel Ljuboja capping a period of sustained Hamburg pressure by poking home the equaliser six minutes after the interval.
Their respite was shortlived, however, as Ioannis Amanatidis restored the home side's advantage with his clinical shot finding the net through a crowded area.
Amanatidis then failed with a couple of efforts which might have secured the result for the hosts, before Boubacar Sanogo rounded off a quick breakaway attack with a close range header to snatch a draw in the 69th minute.
The result, Frankfurt's fifth draw of the season, preserves their unbeaten start to the season, but both sides will regret the missed chances that could have made all the difference.
Argentina captain Juan Pablo Sorin and Ljuboja both rattled the bar for Hamburg in the three minutes preceding the latter's equaliser.
At the other end, Naohiro Takahara and substitute Michael Thurk came close to snatching a Frankfurt winner in the final 10 minutes.
Hamburg, who are playing in the Champions League this season, are still winless after six matches.
Frankfurt are yet to lose but the fact that they have won only one of their six matches leaves them in midtable.
