American defender John Brooks scored in the 90th minute to give Wolfsburg a 1-1 home draw with Eintracht on Monday and dent the visitors’ Champions League hopes.

Eintracht had taken the lead in the 78th minute as Jonathan De Guzman scored 10 minutes after coming on. When a deflected shot angled across the penalty area the Canadian outmuscled Josuha Guilavogui and then guided the ball past Pavao Pervan from close range.

Eintracht have a Europa League semifinal against Chelsea at the start of May and were seeking breathing room in the race for the fourth Bundesliga spot in next season’s Champions League.
