Football: Frankfurt rout 10-man Nuremberg to pull clear

Eintracht Frankfurt pulled clear of the relegation battle on Sunday with a 5-2 romp at ten-man Nuremberg, who remain deep in the Bundesliga's bottom three. European champions Bayern Munich are poised to have their Bundesliga title confirmed on Tuesday with a record seven games left if they win at Hertha Berlin.
