The brawl broke out deep into injury time as Frankfurt trailed Freiburg 1-0 and captain Abraham launched the ball into the box in a desperate attempt for his side to snatch a late equaliser.
Abraham was heading towards Frieburg’s bench after Freiburg player managed to hoof the ball clear and Frankfurt defender Abraham went charging down to the touchline to retrieve it.
